 On A Six Apart's Blog today:

On Scripting News, Dave writes:

We could establish a profile of RSS 2.0 and implement strict compliance with that profile in the major blogging tools.

This has been followed by a discussion of the issues on Sam's weblog, with a lot of discussion over whether the core profile should be based on RSS 1.0, 2.0, or whether it's really necessary at all.

What we need is a profile of RSS specific to weblogs: "RSS for Weblogs".

Check out the discussion on Sam Ruby's blog - its both inspiring and a bit depressing.  Inspiring because a lot of energy is going into thinking though what RSS needs to be in the future, depressing because it underscores how difficult it is to establish a new standard when its in everybody's cross-hairs.  It's so much easier to establish a standard when no one is paying much attention......
