DARPA's official Grand Challenge site has a web-based forum for discussion among people working on entries. I've made it easier to find and read new posts by scraping the site and creating an RSS feed.
The feed is updated hourly. DARPA's forum software does not provide permanent (or even temporary) links to individual posts, so each RSS item is linked to the discussion topic page from which it came.
I was toying with the idea of scraping every team website I could find (there are currently 136 teams in the pipeline), but after looking at one terrible, terrible website after another I'm not sure I have the stomach for it. Too bad they didn't go with a free weblog hosting service, and get automatically generated RSS/Atom feeds as part of the deal.Posted by jjwiseman at March 16, 2005 02:05 PM
