Change The World WordPress Plugin

A little while ago I read about the Change the Web Challenge and was inspired to modify the Hello, Dolly plugin to display the lyrics to I’d Love To Change The World by Ten Years After (and there was much rejoicing).

So more as a joke than anything, I entered it into the challenge and posted about it here, and was really surprised when Joe Solomon actually commented about it saying,

” Hey Dave! Neat plugin! Glad the Change the Web Challenge inspired you! :)

If you remix some ways to take action into it via Social Actions – then you’ll have a bonafied and super fun submission! For example, you could add a feed of actions with the phrase “change the world” – http://search.socialactions.com/actions?q=%22Change+The+World%22&created=all&commit=Search

It would also be our first musical submission – which would rock! (no pun intended)

Best,
Joe

Ok that kind of stuff eats at me, and it kept gnawing at the back of my mind until today I decided to see if I could tie it into the Twitter API, returning an ATOM feed for the search query “change the world”.

So I did and here it is: Change The World WordPress Plugin

Installation is super easy – get it, unzip it, upload it to your plugins folder and activate it. Thanks for inspiring me Joe!

Here’s a gratuitous picture of Alvin – dig that spiky wrist band:
