I just came with an idea for a new project: Mindless Link Propagator.
The idea is simple: you have your RSS reader (like Google Reader) and select some news worth showing everybody else (this is the “star item” on Google Reader). Then MLPtor will see those items and allow you to post them to you journal (with source and the blurb), optionally allowing you to add some comments. Using the Google Reader “stared items” is easier, ’cause it creates another RSS with them. So, all you need to do is get the RSS, as a normal RSS Reader, add some options to add comments and such and then post to your favorite journal.
That would be a real time saver for me. :)
Now, if I only could finish the damn “NaturalDocs” on python before venturing into this…
