Pipes: Want to read Dutch?

.. or just want a laugh?

Last week Yahoo surprised me with Yahoo Pipes. With Yahoo Pipes you can quite easily drag and drop a mashup together that takes information from several sources, do some transformation on that and present the result in a new page that one can easily link to.

As with all good Web 2.0 practices the mashups are shared and you can take one built by someone else and change it, tweak it to your personal pleasure or use it as the source for your own Pipes mashup.

Sounds like a lot of fun!

And fun it is! I started playing with it a bit and took the feed of this blog and piped it through the BabelFish translator to produce a version of the feed in my own native language: Dutch. A bit scary to say the least.

Well, this is a link to the Dutch version of this blog. Or use the RSS feed. Enjoy!

Or wanna see some pictures from animals?
