How to make a timeline with specific RSS feeds

Here's a nifty timeline made in a flash with Idealab-specific posts by members of the Journal Register Company group.

Let this serve you as a tutorial on how to make a timeline.
What I did: I added an RSS feed from RSS feeds to Dipity.

To do this:

Copy and paste all the desired RSS feeds (you can narrow your post even further by selecting RSS feeds from tags like, say, "Idealab"). Create the new RSS feed.
Visit (join if you haven't).
The online timeline tool allows you to add events manually or automatically (Twitter, Google News searches, photos from Flickr or Picassa, videos from YouTube or Vimeo, RSS feeds, Yelp, Digg, you name it).
So add your newly created RSS feed.
Done. Serve hot with pinch of parsley in either Timeline, list, map or slide mode.
