Recycled feeds

Here’s a fun thing: using blogs to re-publish old episodic content.

Samuel Pepy’s diary has been published as a blog since 2003. Bible RSS feeds for your daily scriptures (see also Blogging the Bible by David Plotz on Slate). It’s Bloomsday, but is reading Ulysses a page a day via RSS any more manageable than the dead tree version? Steven Wright and Jenny Holzer are rocking opposite ends of the intellectual spectrum over on Twitter (never before, I think, has a medium been put to such perfectly apt use). Each day last February I posted the 28 chapters of Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet.
