New York Times River of News

I am addicted to Dave Winer’s “NYTimesRiver“. It takes all of the RSS feeds from the New York Times, grabbing them every couple of minutes, and puts them in chronological order, newest first. Like I said, I’m addicted. I use the service on my iPhone constantly, and not just when I’m bored, etc. I find it a great way to check up on the news and what’s going on in the world. And the format is great for mobile devices (I do wish he would get rid of the image at the top though, it takes up space and interferes with the news… and anyone with half a brain would realize that this is perfect for mobile devices!)
One problem though… I don’t see it updating as it has in the past. Is it broken Dave…?
Update: Dave sent me an email about it (also posted a link to my site, thanks) which read….

Yes, but your timing is good…

And Dave says he’s glad it’s “missed”… :-). I’ve been using it since day one and I don’t know what I would do without it. as become a staple in my news reading life!!!!
I think maybe I’ll get him a gift for all that he’s done for the community. Maybe and EVDO router just in case his LAN goes down again…?
