Future Vision - Tivo For Blogging
The Bloggers Bof Session has already been heavily covered, but what I think what is missing is all the cool sub-topics that happened beneath the RSS versus Atom discussion. Jason Nadal documented the discussion on the need for standarization of meta-data so that aggregation can get smarter, and is a bit of a complex discussion, where one can get lost. But what we are really talking about is building a Tivo-like system for Blogging. That will require 2 major updates to the blogging world, a standard metadata for describing the categorization of blog content, and smart clients that can use the metadata. Tivo has an advantage over blogging because they already have an industry that categorizes their data. But I think with a little help we can get this done it a reasonable timeframe.
