Unbound Spiral: XML Profile?

January 24, 2003 02:17 PM

LJ/DJ provide useful functionality that is not available in blogger, Radio, or Moveable type. In particular, the profiling capability and the community of friends listings. It's the profiling that provides the statistics. Possibly a profile system added to blogroll could enable improved statistics access for all who participate. You could spread it virally.

Saw David Galbraith also suggesting an XML profile. Broadcasting.... consumer profiles. I don't think that is what is intended, an unintended consequence?

Am I watching the Napster - (Ryze) vs Kazaa (broader blogging) aspects at play here?
