Submission + - Receive BBC World news as XMPP Messages (lobstermonster.org)

tuoppikoski writes: Lobstermonster.org did a service where you can receive latest BBC news right to your XMPP (jabber) account. No more RSS readers!

Just add bbc-news@xmpp.lobstermonster.org as a contact to your XMPP Account to start receiving notifications of latest BBC World News. When you don't want to receive notifications anymore, just unsubscribe from bbc-news@xmpp.lobstermonster.org. There's even a service to receive notifications like this from http://slashdot.org/firehose_recent.rss by subscribing user slashdot@xmpp.lobstermonster.org to your XMPP Roster.

Make it right before you make it faster.
