Harvey Webbanger is a GPL licensed PHP script that aggregates
information intended to foster social interaction. Harvey
receives e-mail messages, parses HTTP resources, pulls RSS feeds, and makes
web API calls. It's possible at some point that Harvey will have
an API of its own, to support pushed data. Once Harvey has
collected everything it has been configured to gather, Harvey
produces a cocktail of information via e-mail and news feeds.
How does Harvey 'foster social interaction'?
Harvey is not an RSS aggregator for use as a 'news
reader' like TT-RSS or Feedly. Harvey's purpose, is to
aggregate information that when consumed by others, will stimulate
conversation and interaction. Harvey is a middleman, not an
endpoint. You use the information generated by Harvey with
something else, perhaps an e-mail, perhaps a blog post.
