Grabanjothing

I've been experimenting with ways to create an uberblog that mashes up a bunch of my friends' blogs, with mixed success.

I was hoping to end up with a list of posts with full text, pictures and movies, in reverse chronological order from about 5 or 6 friends.

Yahoo Pipes got me part of the way there with Grabanjothing 1.0. The feed for this is close to perfect and has complete posts with pictures and everything... but the Pipes display page is truncating posts. Also I can't get the source blog name to appear next to the post title...

Next step was to run it through FeedBurner to get an RSS URL without parameters. Still looks pretty good through an RSS reader. I'm a little stuck on the next step... every RSS to HTML converter I can find seems to just use the description field, so I end up with something like this. Hmm.

Anyway, apologies to the feeds I borrowed for this experiment.
