Badger uses Yahoo! Pipes and JavaScript to create Web badges out of any RSS feed. You can see examples of RSS feeds in the left margin of ircworld - for those I've used another service, Feedigest, but Badger is easier to use (and free). Badger is essentially the same kind of tool as USINFO's magnet, which allows you to stream USINFO's RSS feeds to a webpage of your choice, but with Badger you can select from any valid RSS feed. Here's an example of three colorful Badger-generated feeds. (For some reason, the page does not render correctly when viewed through Firefox..but it works in IE)
