27 July 05 - 10:57 Dave Winer's OPML EditorAs most people in the blogosphere know, Dave Winer is the 'Big Daddy' of weblogs (created the RSS format on which blogs are built). Now he is working on a new project, the OPML Editor!
OPML stands for Outline Processor Markup Language and is the driving file format used for outlines and outliners. Outlines basically provide a way of presenting (digital) information/lists in a structurized and hierarchical form, whereas outliner applications give you the means to read and edit your outlines.
More info on the OPML website...
Back to the OPML Editor;
Dave has done it again!! He released his OPML Editor (we're at v0.55 at the moment) which is providing a great way of working with outlines and use those outlines for your blogs, podcasts or just good'old plain websites.
I have downloaded and installed the application yesterday and directly got the feel of it...5 minutes later: BOINGGG!
Perhaps the power of OPML and Dave's OPML Editor is not so apparant in the beginning, but I believe this will become an integrated part of 'Web 3.0', 'Blogs 2.0', 'Podcast 1.0' :) :)
Will be playing more with this soon (after my holidays though!), so stay tuned!
