RSS auto-discovery and meta-linking

I've implemented Mark Pilgrim's final version of the RSS auto-discovery technique , inspired by Matt Griffith's proposal . A small change in Mark's Radio bookmarklet seemed to be needed, from indexOf(application/rss+xml') to indexOf('application/rss+xml'), in order to be able to subscribe in Radio to sites using this technique.

It has been surprisingly painless and friction-free. Together, we have come up with a new standard that is useful, elegant, forward-thinking, and widely implemented. In 4 days.


DJ's meta-link is a great idea too. An excellent way to facilitate the kinds of social network analysis that we're all buzzing about lately.
