Turns out some guys have come up with a solution that’s about as crafty a hack as I’ve seen in a while — a site called MySpace Feed will take the contents of your RSS feed and display the headlines as a .gif image. It updates just once per day, only contains the headlines and has limited formatting options, but it works — I’ve been using it for several weeks now on the National Environmental Trust MySpace site. The individual headlines aren’t linked to their stories, but we link the whole image (which has a fixed URL) to our news headlines page. It’s a clunky solution, but it’s probably the best we can do these days.
