Last night in my wrap-up on the day's discussion about myPublicFeeds.opml, I pondered the existence of a theoretical folder that every website could have, a folder like the System folder on the Macintosh, or Documents and Settings on Windows, but for a website. A place for software to store and access public information about the website. A folder for metadata. A place to stash application data. A small cost, a used-up name, a very small cost, but with the gain that we could add new functionality. A W3C working group had the idea of a well-known location in work on the Platform For Privacy, and created a hypothetical folder called w3c and put a site's privacy settings there. That's a good idea. I could then start a folder called Berkman, and applications that originated at Berkman would store their data in that folder. But now the W3C is having second thoughts about this. That's the problem with the W3C, one year they tell you to go north, then after you've gone a thousand miles they change their mind and tell you to go south.

An example myPublicFeeds.opml, pointing to the public RSS feeds of weblogs we're hosting at Berkman. Sites that have syndication turned off, or are private, are not included.
Here's something really strange. On October 22, I'm going to Prince Edward Island to speak at a media conference. I'm one of the keynotes. It sounded like a great group of people and I've never been to the maritime provinces in Canada, so I said yes. Now I read on Sebastien Paquet's weblog that there's a weblog conference in PEI immediately after the one I'm going to. Buzz Bruggeman is coming. Is it a coincidence?
Last year on this day: "The Giants won the game, the series, the championship, and stole our hearts."
Two years ago, in the aftermath of 9-11: "In the future, a man helping a woman, or a woman helping a man, may be seen as a sign of people being kind to each other, and nothing more."
As luck would have it, I will be in the Bay Area on November 24, so I will be able to participate in the Ed Bloggers meeting in San Francisco. My mind still has to adjust because at first I wondered if it would be okay if I attended, then I realized that I am an educational blogger. Reminds me of something about old dogs and new tricks.
