I use Netvibes to keep all of my commonly accessed stuff together.  I'd like to put my 'Saved for Later' items into a widget there.  Netvibes loves RSS, so I was wondering if there's an RSS feed for my saved items?

Edited to be significantly less confrontational (2013-10-11T11:48EDT):
I am less angry and more irritated.  Yes, both fandoms can coexist.  But, the irritation comes from the apparent (not necessarily real) attempt to upstage something that is going to be a big event for:
* Most Sci-Fi fans (even non-Whovians; it's a huge event that a Sci-Fi show is this old)
* A large number of BBC fans (even non-Whovians; it's a huge event that a TV show is this old, let alone one from the BBC)
* A large number of Britons (even non-Whovians; it's a huge event that a TV show is this old, let alone one from the UK)

I would be less irritated if the One Direction event was a day during an anniversary week, but the 50th anniversary is only being 'celebrated' in any official capacity on one day.  One Direction's management should have been well aware of the upcoming 50th anniversary event.

I can get Google Now to  'call [John Doe] Mobile', but when I attempt to 'text [John Doe] Mobile blah blah' or 'text [John Doe] blah blah', it asks 'by [John] do you mean [John Doe] or [John Q Public]'.  (Names changed to protect the not-necessarily innocent.)  In all cases, it recognises the last name (I can see it in the text recognition).  The text conversion of the requests matches the name portion; the only differences are it says 'text' instead of 'call' and has the message content after it.  Anyone able to tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Partly shared for the chance to win, partly because it's an awesome idea.

Corporations do NOT represent the united desires of their employees.  If they represent the desires of more than one person, it is their board or majority stockholders.

I would say that everyone should share this publicly.

And now, a public service announcement about drowning.

Read this unless you never plan to be near water ever again.

+George Takei *'s account has been verified.*  We've been wanting him on G+, and here's our chance!  He wants to see if we can get 250,000 circling him as quick as possible.  There are nearly 23,000 since last night, with 95% of those coming since this morning when he was verified!  *Circle and SHARE!*   #takeituesday

Would be more awesome if he added more plants.
Now this is politics I can get behind! In a move seemingly straight out of Parks and Recreation and something Leslie Knope would be proud of, Ithaca mayor Svante Myrick gave up his parking spot at city hall and turned his space into a mini-park! Interestingly the parallels from the show don't stop there as at 25, Svante is also Ithaca's youngest mayor. Lets hope the fresh green ideas keep coming from him!
