Dipity adds RSS feed importing

dipityI’ve raved before about the coolness that is Dipity, the online timeline creator. Today, I discovered a new feature (not sure how old it is) that adds to that coolness factor. Dipity will allow you to automatically create a timeline based on an RSS feed.

Why would that be cool? Here’s just one example:

I did a Google News search for “newspaper industry” layoffs and fed the RSS feed into Dipity. Then I did a Google Blog search for the same terms and added that to the timeline.

Total time: 20 minutes (including five minutes spent using the wrong RSS feed suggestion in Google News).
