The blogs4God folk have been talking about this BlogMD Initiative for a couple of days now, and I thought it worth a Blogroots post. The “metadata standards” concept still eludes me, however; it sits just across the border of my experience between art and tech. I imagine it has something to do with integrating the data we transmit about our blogs and our blog posts, and how meta-content portals gather and interpret that data. Well, since this is a metadata initiative and not a “content watchers” proposal like the old JesusJournal fiasco, then it sounds pretty darn good, especially if it leads to more effective trackbacking apps and better meta-content portals. Check it out.
