When I first read this article, it simply confirmed what I already knew about the Berkman Center; it was an important part of the Internet landscape. At the time, I was attempting to build a RSS aggregator in C#, inspired by this article. Although I never finished that project, when I became to read both blogs and newspapers through their RSS feeds on a daily basis, early this year, I was struck by the Crimson's own lack of RSS feeds.

The result (although long overdue) of this mild annoyance is a perl script that successfully parses the Crimson News section into a RSS feed. More information can be found on the project's page.
