Old Man Riverin' along

Dave Winer is making an OPML/RSS aggregator. The market is saturated with RSS aggregators, so I guess adding OPML is the next iteration - not that difficult, so everyone and his dog will be doing it.

I may have had the odd word to say about Dave in the past, but that doesn't mean I don't respect the projects he champions. Tinfinger will be fully committed to providing RSS and OPML feeds, in both river-of-news and clustered views respectively for every appropriate page. Personally I also prefer the river-of-news format (which does not organise entries by topic, but instead puts them out in a flat time-based stream), but OPML enables a lot more variations in clustering techniques so people who want that should be accommodated. In particular, a river of clusters in the manner of Memeorandum should prove popular.
