I do believe that Rogers Cadenhead has spilled the beans on Dave’s bizarre mood recently. Here’s Dave reply. Oh dear, oh dear. oh dear. I feel sorry for them both – for different reasons. It’s no fun when things get to the lawyers. I think Rogers should probably give Dave back the money and show us what this OPML Factory is all about. If it’s anything like what Frontier does with users’ OPML, then it could be quite interesting. It all depends on the interfaces, as much as the tools and ‘share levels’ available to users. [Note: ippoder.org indiepodder.org has been running on Frontier and was down for quite a few days recently – I wonder if it has been rewritten yet? It probably is getting an overhaul via Podshow/Podcast Alley]
Another reason why all this is such an OMG moment, is that all this sounds remarkably similar to a big part of a system I have been developing, which I should be able to show you all very soon. I’m working as hard as I can and as hard as I have ever done, since leaving the BBC to follow my heart and passion to work with some great people (who I trust and respect) to build podcast.com. (coming sooooon!!!!!) 🙂
Sounds like OPML is going to hit the headlines for more reasons than expected this year than I thought!
