Because of technical difficulties, we had to seriously edit the podcast. The original was over twice as long! As a result, this podcast is a series of conversations, sometimes with no transitions to set up context. (We tried using a multiple Skype setup, and it just didn’t work well.) So, I’ve provided a set of timed notes so that you know when you hit a new section.

  • 0:00: Lists: “one of the holes in our structured blogging thing”
  • 0:42: OPML: “technically OPML isn’t typed”
  • 1:25: “I believe there is another step, the next notch of functionality that will enable folks to do things they couldn’t do before”
  • 2:15: The Compatibility Box Approach
  • 3:10: “We’re trying to make a better world here”
  • 3:30: On Subscribing and the Future of Structured Blogging
  • 5:48: What does an Structured Blogging Aggregator find when it hits a site?
  • 6:54: “If we had it Paul Kedrosky‘s way, all tools vendors would stand still and do nothing”
  • 7:11: “This is the next era of blogging”
  • 8:03: “Structured Blogging will be a non-profit”
  • 9:03: “It’s a different approach to standards-building”
  • 9:31: Users making schemas: “It’s completely out of control at that point”
  • 9:36: On Macromedia and Adobe mating
  • 11:52: Reger.com’s new OPML feature
  • 12:24: Marc’s response to Greg Yardley
  • 13:04: Marc’s citizen journalism concern
  • 13:17: On censorship (a random overdub that makes funny sense)
  • Let us know what you think!
