Google Buzz Website Integration, A Two Way Street



Zetsubou! You can't be a cutting edge blog if you can't figure out how to integrate all the latest and greatest, right?

How do I get my Google Buzz stream to show on my website or blog?

Your public posts are automatically put into an ATOM type syndication feed with the URL http://buzz.googleapis.com/feeds/[username]/public/posted. Personally, I'm disappointed by the blandness of the autogenerated titles given to each feed element.
