Week 2 Thing 6 - RSS feeds

The feed that I subscribed to this week was Dave Pattern's photograph feed on Flickr. Dave works in the library at the University of Huddersfield and creates very beautiful data visualisations based on things like book covers and the number of hits on particular terms on the OPAC.

He also illusatrates how RSS can be used in creative ways. Check out this "portrait" he created in coloured words taken straight from my RSS feed: kg_001

There are more portraits of librarians in this set here: In their own words....

Dave explains how he did it on this post: Librarians - in their own words .
