Scoop improvements we should make

By dchud, Section Software

I'm really digging scoop, the weblog engine we're using to run /usr/lib/info. And though I'm a bit concerned about running a cvs version, it's very stable and I'm already a loyal user. That said, there are two features I'd love to see in it that the /u/l/i community is uniquely poised to experiment with.

For all of you XML-weenies ;-) JavaWorld is running an article on creating SAX parsers with XML-schemas. Worth a look. [editor's note, by jfrumkin] Moved this post into the MLP section

MD3 - The Metadata3 Project

By jfrumkin, Section Software
Posted on Mon May 20th, 2002 at 02:36:50 PM EST
The MD3 Project takes a different approach to metadata - instead of having to create and implement new systems to handle new types of metadata, why not make new types of metadata work with our current systems?

Read on for a description of the MD3 application. Currently, the project is in its infancy (I have applied and am awaiting word on a $2000 grant to help fund development of the application), but feedback on the idea is appreciated. Update [2002-5-23 8:30:8 by jfrumkin]: I received my grant - it will provide enough money to hire a student to implement a prototype app. for the project. Yippee!
