A Web site which dynamically updates itself with the latestnews and information? Nope, it's not as far-fetched as it sounds. Asthis article demonstrates, all you need is a little imagination, acouple of free RDF files and some PHP glue.
Imagine a site that carried the latest news from the hottest portals on the Web. Stock prices, weather information, news stories, threaded discussions, software releases...all updated dynamically, on an hourly basis, without any manual intervention. Imagine the traffic such a site would get. Imagine the advertising dollars that would pour in, and the adulation that the webmaster would receive.
Now stop imagining and start reading, because, if you pay close attention, that webmaster could be you and that site could be yours. All you need is a little imagination, some clever PHP coding and a couple of free RSS files. And, obviously, the remaining nine pages of this article.
