FriendFeed Room for eZ Publish

Image
I've been playing with FriendFeed for a little while and today setup an eZ Publish room. FriendFeed is a content aggregator that is primarily targeted at "friends", but several projects have been using it at a convergence point for information.

In their own words:
FriendFeed enables you to keep up-to-date on the web pages, photos, videos and music that your friends and family are sharing. It offers a unique way to discover and discuss information among friends.
I've primed the room with RSS feeds from eZ Planet, the eZ.no site, eZ Projects and a twitter search for "ezpublish" like terms.

Feel free to join and contribute, or simply add the RSS feed of the room to your reader and follow a bunch of eZ news from the one feed.
