Is there some way to get instant, ticker-like notifications when a question that has a specific tag has just been posted? So I can answer quickly.

There would be several solutions to this, e.g.:

  • When I have this something like this open in my browser: http://stackoverflow.com/unanswered/tagged/wpf make the site update itself automatically. Just as it updated automatically when I am in the process of posting an answer.
  • Allow me to subsribe with twitter for certian tags.
  • have an extra desktop ticker app

There are a couple of options for that. First, you could hook the RSS feed for a tag up to Twitter via a free service like TwitterFeed. Second you could create a room in chat that follows a tag and get instant updates in the chat room.
