rss-data

the idea is that a new breed of RSS aggregators would emerge around domain-specific application areas. I can imagine these aggregators running on servers and in rich clients. With the advent of clients like Macromedia Central, and in the future, .NET client applications, I think it will become more common for client applications to aggregate data across disparate feeds in the network. For example, one might create a "Classifieds Viewer" that subscribed to and aggregated multiple distributed RSS-Data enabled classifieds feeds into a single view. In such an example, RSS-Data could be added to that provided additional structured data, such as price, quantity, geography, payment details, and other things relevant to a product.
