Julian Bond reports that Yahoo Groups has upgraded their RSS support. Here's an example feed, for the Syndication list. Very nice. It won't validate, because the author element is used incorrectly. I've written a proposal for the Advisory Board that the author element be liberalized to reflect common practice.
Roger Benningfield correctly understands the RSS-Data proposal. Jeremy Allaire expands on the idea. The canonical example is the Technorati API. Having a common serialization format for parameters would simplify things for users of the API, and probably would make Sifry's life easier as well.
Ray Ozzie says email is unworkable for real collaboration. As I read it, and hear him pitch his product, it would be more convincing if Groove were open to competition, or at least open to being built on. When they came out with web services interfaces, finally, after years of waiting, the excitement was dampened because it didn't work with the programming environment I use. Maybe they are open to be extended, but, practically are there any extensions from people who are not working at or closely with Groove? It's clear that Ray is passionate about this, and I'm sure that passion is genuine. But it would be easier to join his cause if there was a way to participate without necessarily depending on his company.
BTW, Ray will be at BloggerCon on Saturday.
