A wiki wiki dream.

I have a dream! And it involves portals.

I'm looking for software that will allow me to build something that's almost like a personal-portal, in the same vein as Backpackit, but that I can install on my own server. Ideally I'd like to be able to post via email and I definitely want to get various rss feeds out of it. It'd also be great if there was some sort of tagging system.

Does this mystical portal software exist?

One option (this is what I do) is to get a good server-side RSS reader (I use AmphetaDesk, but I'm not wild about it) and just use various tools (or write your own) to convert all your info to RSS. For instance, I have feeds for email, various websites, shipping status, etc.

If you've got Gmail, you can use this.

If you google about you'll find plenty of screen scrapers.

I'm running Postnuke at my site. Well-supported, lots of developers creating cool stuff for it, and you can't beat the price.

I was thinking of doing the same thing. My thought was to run a wiki on it (MediaWiki), Squirrelmail, PHPiCalendar, as well as have some RSS feeds and whatnot. Just a place for me and my girlfriend to communicate when we're not in the same room. Oh yeah and maybe an install of de.lirio.us or some other "del.icio.us"-like tool just for us.
