Turning Internet Feeds into TV Feeds with WPF and IronPython

Jon Udell has been writing a series of blog entries on a project to display RSS feeds in a publicly accessible way. He settled on WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation - part of .NET 3) as the user interface, but couldn't wire up the timer callback to refresh the display periodically from IronPython. After prototyping in C#, and with a bit of help, he got an IronPython version working:
Jon's project is to make information more accessible by displaying it on his local public access cable TV. Although the IronPython and C# versions of this client are virtually identical, he is leaning towards the IronPython one as it would be easier for the folks at the TV station to customize / modify it.
