I've released a "lifestream" widget* that scrapes your aggregated activity from friendfeed and lets you embed it on your webpage. You can see it in action on my web page. Friendfeed themselves make such a widget available but it is rather useless.
If there's any interest (i.e, if more than 2 people install it :-) I'll probably make a version 2 which additionally detects presence on IM networks and provides links to your profile pages on all your services, making it an all-in-one lifestream/identity/presence widget.
Considering my work on privacy and netflix it is ironic in a way that I'm piping my Netflix queue (and a whole lot of other things) into my website. But I've always maintained that if there's something I consider private I simply don't enter it online, rather than trusting some company to do the right thing.
Comments/criticism much appreciated.
*I hate the word lifestream. I don't spend my entire life in front of the computer.
