  16. 16. Problems<br />Events RSS feed – displays based on publication date not on event date. <br />Investigate using YahooPipes! to mash the feed into submission.<br />Social RSS – Facebook page – formatting is not pretty.<br />Look at other third party apps to see if they can do any better.<br />What do we do with Delicious?<br />
