I love mashups | some cool stuff i did with yahoo pipes and cameroid

So i wanted to take some pictures with my built in webcam and i started to write my own in flash but then i thought to myself, self i bet theres already one that exists and you know what? i was right. check out http://cameroid.com/. heres the gallery im scraping using pipe



its got some pretty neat features like distort and other filters but it was missing one thing. a strong username / api for the system, not even a rss feed so i decided to make one. I had just found this crazy thing yahoo pipes
so i went to work to make a rss feed with my images. I made a pipe that just pulled the images for a single page. then i used a loop to have it run through the first 15 pages of the user gallery i set with the pipe. now the pipe sends out clean rss with my cameroid pictures in historical order perfect for me to plug into friend feed. awesome another social mashup under my belt
