Dave Winer has released his OPML thingie. It outlines, it blogs, it slices cucumbers, it dices chocolate, and it’s pleasant.

I’m playing with it here.

It’s cool so far, and an awfully fast way to blog. Low on bandwidth-sucking bells and whistles, high on content. No FTP necessary. Little assembly required. Side effects may include blogging less about more, but we’ll see how it goes.
