Newsvine Brought To This Site

Well, I’ve hacked togeth­er a method for inte­grat­ing my Newsvine seeds onto this blog. I’m going to test it out for a week or two. I may find the for­mat­ting annoy­ing and you all may find it annoy­ing to have your RSS read­er clogged up with a bunch of crap you did­n’t want.
