Vanity is having a dashboard widget (Mac OS X only) for all of your own web feeds. I doubt anyone out there, except perhaps my mother, will want to install this, but I had some fun making it so I thought I’d share it anyway.

It was very simple actually. I used Dashcode to make a widget that displays my Yahoo Pipes feed (RSS), with some help from this tutorial.

Currently the feed collects my Savage Minds and Keywords posts, as well as my Flickr photostream, and links to comments I’ve made on other blogs. As I add new feeds (Twitter?) to the pipe, the widget will be automatically updated.

I could see this being very useful if one was teaching a class or running a project where you wanted everyone to be reading a bunch of related feeds.
