Quora Scraper

I love Quora. It's a great site and community. But I started getting a bit concerned how much writing I was doing there which was (potentially) disappearing inside their garden and not part of the body of thinking I'm building up on ThoughtStorms (or even my blogs).

Fortunately, I discovered Quora has an RSS feed of my answers, so I can save them to my local machine. (At some point I'll think about how to integrate them into ThoughtStorms; should I just make a page for each one?)

Anyway here's the script (powered by a lot of Python batteries.)

And this turns the files back into a handy HTML page.
