I came across a great exercise in integration this morning. Allconsuming.net is
a website that visits recently updated weblogs every hour, checking them for links
to books on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Book Sense, and other book sites. Every book
on this site has a list of all the weblogs that have mentioned it, and every weblog
that has mentioned books in the past also has a page here listing which books it has
Is uses a number of web services available on the web to accomplish this and the integration
is seamless and very slick. The site also publishes it’s aggregated content as a web
service for consumption by other sites as well as content in other forms (I’ll have
a recommended reading list on the blog soon).
Check it out .. it’s great !!
