The RSS writer in Radio is now officially user-extensible. " Before generating the RSS, we check user.radio.callbacks.writeRssFile," Dave writes today . Excellent. This will open the floodgates for all sorts of useful metadata experimentation. We'll see Radio UserLand sites emitting RSS 1.0, and others extending RSS .9x. It's not the format that matters to me, it's the experimentation.
In that vein, I've heard from a few folks who are working the other side of the street, looking for ways to enhance the aggregators that read RSS channels. I think this is fertile ground for innovation. Personal aggregators are still quite new, and we have a lot to learn about how we want to use them.
