Atom 1.0 and RDF

The more I think about my main contribution to the RDF/XML Rec, the more I like its implications.

And congrats to the Atompub WG on Atom going, effectively, 1.0. I have mixed feelings about the syndication format; IMO, it should have reused existing formats, warts and all, in the spirit of paving the cowpaths. On the other hand, with Microsoft’s buy-in, its success now seems assured (though it will continue to trail RSS for years to come, it seems). I’m much more excited about the potential of the protocol though.
