Google Ajax API feed

Over on the right, where it says "Google Dynamic Feed - Libraries & Technology", you see an example of an rss feed courtesy of Google's "Dynamic Feed Wizard." To create a feed, you enter the names of some feeds, or type in some search terms (in this case, "libraries and technology"), and the Dynamic Feed Wizard makes an RSS feed of the search results, then generates some javascript so you can channel the feed to your website or blog. The default is 4 results, but if you sign up for a Google API key, have some programming ability, and do a little tweaking with the code, you can change that and many other parameters by following the instructions in the Dynamic Feed Control Programming Guide. For an example of an rss aggregator built with the Google Ajax API, see Smashing Feeds.
