A friend of mine recently recommended the IF This Then That web site.

It looks very flexible and I will investigate further.

If all goes to plan this very blog post will start a cascade of interesting processes.


  1. It'd be interesting to see if you can find some useful applications. When I discovered it some time ago, I was very excited and I set it to send me a text message every time I starred something in Google Reader. Which is a nice but useless proof-of-concept. I haven't come up with anything that is actually useful.

  2. Hi Martin,

    So far I've set it to send a Twitter post every time I publish a new blog entry.

    I forgot, actually, so when I published my last blog entry I went to Twitter to tweet it was surprised to see I'd beaten myself to it!

    So that clearly works :)

    This is handy because Blogger doesn't have that facility, although it will automatically post to Google Circles when a new blog post is made.

    If I find any 'killer' use for it I'll post it here :)
