The guys over at recently put the "Add to My Yahoo" button on all of the 30,000+ RSS feeds they provide. For example, if you'd like to track news related to the 2004 presidential race, simply visit the 2004 Presidential Election page and hit the button on the right.

Of course, this isn't rocket surgery. Anyone can add the button to a web site with an RSS (or Atom) feed.

Check it out. They're doing some cool stuff. Before, several of them worked on My Netscape and dmoz.

There's no *alt* tag on the "Add to My Yahoo!" button, which makes it inaccessible. I've added the alt tag for my page, but it should be fixed at Yahoo's end.

How would one do rocket surgery?

*pulls out heart of rocket*

"Hey joe? Why did the rocket stop firing?"
"Uhh..dude, you're holding its engine"
"Oh yeah..hey wait..why are we falling really really fast to the ground?"
"Hmm. No idea joe."

Anyway aside from the rocket surgery jokes, its good to see all of this RSS/Atom feed being used to its maximum potential- this is the future ya know. We all will be adding "could not live without RSS" to our profiles someplace soon.. :D
