Syndication discussions hot up
After a period of dormancy, the Syndication mailing list has become active again, with contributions from leaders in traditional media and Web syndication.
Laird Popkin, of the ICE authoring group (ICE is a specification created by big players in news and information to enable Internet-based syndication of content), joined the list and described how ICE relates to the Internet syndication technologies RSS and OCS.
An interesting discussion has also grown up around how content providers cope with preserving their business models and making XML versions of their content available. Started by Kevin Burton, it has so far drawn contributions from Dave Winer and Laird Popkin, who represent different ends of the spectrum of opinion on syndication and the Internet.
