I got up too early today hoping for a nice picturable sunrise over the beach, but it’s gray and overcast like last night’s sunset. Too bad I drank those two cups of coffee or I’d crash for an additional hour or two. At least I got to try out Dave Winer’s new OPML thing. So far about the only interesting thing with this was that it gave me a chance to see how my reading list compares to the alpha geek crowd, the only people using “Share Your OPML” at this point. Read Steve Rubel for an interesting take, he’s hitting the Dave Winer Kool-Aid early this morning.
I did find one cool blog through it -
Finding a long list of interesting new blogs through the top 100 probably isn’t going to possible. As more users get on board the top 100 will quickly become yet another (and rather old and tired) A-List of blogging. I’ve yet to find a web site that gives good visibility into what is arguably the more interesting side of the blogsphere, the “long tail”. Dave is trying to offer this throuugh SYOPML’s “feeds like mine” feature, but I found very little in there of value.
