FeedBurner Hackathon III

Jun 26, 2006
Category Investments

Periodically FeedBurner gets all their engineers in a room, turns over tech support to the business team for the day, and cranks out a bunch of features.  Hackathon III occurred a week ago on Friday and generated a healthy list of new things for all the friendly neighborhood FeedBurner users, including:

  • Map It FeedFlare: Link to Google Maps if you have address info in your post.
  • BuzzBoost Brush-up: Spiffy new BuzzBoost features, including subscribe to feed.
  • Download Tracking Tweaks: UI cleanup on Download Tracking.
  • FeedBulletin via Email: Get email alerts (instead of RSS alerts) for your FeedBulletin feed.
  • IP To Location: Live hits page now displays countries where your items are being viewed.
  • Mobile Feed Stats: Check your stats on a mobile web browser.
  • FeedFlare Scratchpad: Play around with and test out new FeedFlare’s easily
  • FeedBurner Module for Netvibes: See a bunch of FeedBurner stuff in Netvibes.
  • New Email This FeedFlare: Email This webpage instead of mailto: (for non-nerds – this works better).
  • FeedBurner Help: Lots more help.

I love this approach to pushing features out.
