    Is anyone else doing this? I have only started and its revolutionizing finding stories for the mantra. Does anyone have a good list of rss feeds worth using? So far i have things like yahoo, the telegraph (uk), Huntington post……any others i can add? RT i assume has an rss feed?

    If you are on mac try Reeder. It searches the whole feed and not just the headline. So i simply just check all the feeds at various points in the day for “immigration” “racism” “race” “multiculturalism” etc….

    If you perform a news search on yahoo or google,  you can save the RSS link.  It helps to understand Google Search Operators (yes google has its own language of sorts)

    For example,  if you pasted the following into news.google.com

    “racism” OR “racist” OR “diversity” OR “multiculturalism”

    It would provide you with all news articles that have ANY of those keywords.  Then at the very bottom of the search results there would be a link to RSS feed for that particular search.

    http://pipes.yahoo.com allows you to integrate several news feeds into one.   It also allows you to remove any duplicate articles…  sort them…or even scrape websites that don’t have rss

    Now wouldn’t that be good to have for all the major feeds in the BUGS locker room.

    How about have our bots crawling the web, finding the stories with comment opportunities.

    Reeders for Windows.

    I always thought it would be a good idea to have a spider that crawls the web looking for relevant stories,  lists them out for us… and gives registered users the ability to mark the listed article as “Mantra’d”.

    A few months ago I posted a yahoo pipe on here under the handle of Linux Lewis.  I had different pipes for different languages.

    To be honest.. I think the most effective way to mantra, is to flat out TROLL.   I don’t care if the video is about dancing hamsters,  if it is getting bombarded with views/comments… we need to swarm the video and like our comments up to the “top comments” list.   If we do 3 or 4 a day…..  we will reach millions of people every single day.

    Excellent idea. I wish all our links could be organized into a system like this that we could mark as “needing assistance” or “no activity.”

     

    And each new link could prompt a search of the old links to see if it has already been posted.

    Thanks for the tips elcyCesreveR. I now have Google alerts feeding into Reeder and alerting me anytime it finds my keywords (racism, racist, multiculturalism, immigration etc..)

    G-Sign up for a google account and then create alerts using http://www.google.com/alerts you can specify whether you want them to go to your email or you RSS reader.

    PS-If we all use the same keywords for alerts then we should be all getting the same results therefore we will all be swarming the same links!

    will these alerts and/or rss feeds arrive in the form of emails? meaning, will i see them on my mobile device?

    I suggest we might add white privilege to the list of alerts/feeds.
