Books delivered to your news aggregator

Dave dropped me a email today pointing me at Amazon RSS.

Another Amazon Web Services experiment. The idea is this: say you're interested in books about weblogs. Wouldn't it be nice to have an RSS feed for all weblog-related books at Amazon, so that when new books became available you'd know about them? Thanks to the magic of web pipelines (Amazon >> XML over HTTP >> XSLT >> ASP >> RSS >> Your News Aggregator), it's become a pretty trivial thing to put together.

Yep this a fantastic use of standard technology, all i need to do now is swap the ASP for XSP…
