Brian Jepson did some very cool demos using Perl to convert RSS into WML so he can read blogs while standing in line at the DMV (although not while driving, he was quick to point out). He also used the same technique to wrap Amazon's Web Services so that he can check on how his books are selling on Amazon. Pretty groovy stuff. He also (bless his heart) rewrote the same applications in C# (using Rotor on OS X) so that people can actually read them. :)
You can check out his sources here.
Better still, he demoed RSS.NET, which is a C#/.NET library for reading and writing RSS. Now I can go and fix up my Draco.NET RSS feed, since I unknowingly coded all the RSS by hand.
