Drinking from the firehose

Some firehoses to drink read from, other than twitter’s:

  1. Google Buzz, through their activity firehose API methods;
  2. FriendFeed, using their real-time updates methods.

While the first works via pubsubhubhub, the second uses a combination of long polling and a cursor that helps you make subsequent calls.
