A really interesting meta idea that just caught my attention is SuprGlu. This is a really interesting new Web 2.0 service that allows you to pull much of your digital content floating around into one page. You give SuprGlu some blogs (Blogger, Xanga, LiveJournal), photo sharing sites (Flickr), and social bookmarking sites (del.icio.us, Simpy, Digg) that you use. Give SuprGlu your user name (no passwords required) and the service will pull your content from all of these sites and serve it up in a template of your choice. Basically, you create your own really stylish meta-blog with all of this information. The SuprGlu page even allows comments for each individual post. It really is a new blog created out of the content from your various sites. The Flickr and del.icio.us content is even given a blog post title by SuprGlu. Very slick!
It may not sound as cool as it actually is–you really need to check it out for yourself. Here is my SuprGlu page:
As you can see, SuprGlu gives you your own unique URL that can be accessed by anyone. Rather than visiting Blogger, WordPress, Flickr, Digg, and del.icio.us, people can go to this one page and see all of this content neatly rolled into one page.
SuprGlu gives you a decent variety of templates. This is a new service, and I hope they continue to expand and add more features. I would like a little more in the way of customization (although you can edit the CSS) and to be able to pull in other feeds as well. It would be really neat to create a page from a group of bloggers, or material from me and my fiancee, for example.
All of the information that SuprGlu is from publicly accessible RSS feeds. It is kind of scary to realize how much data about a person is freely available once one starts using services like Flickr and del.icio.us!
