Henri-Frรฉdรฉric Amiel (1821 – 1881): “The man who insists on seeing with perfect clearness before he decides, never decides.”

Dave Winer’s OPML Editor

Wednesday, July 27th, 2005

As most people in the blogosphere know, Dave Winer

is the ‘Big Daddy’ of weblogs (created the RSS format on which blogs

are built). Now he is working on a new project, the OPML Editor!

OPML stands for Outline Processor Markup Language and is the driving

file format used for outlines and outliners. Outlines basically provide

a way of presenting (digital) information/lists in a structurized and

hierarchical form, whereas outliner applications give you the means to

read and edit your outlines.

Back to the OPML Editor;

Dave has done it again!! He released his OPML Editor (we’re at v0.55 at

the moment) which is providing a great way of working with outlines and

use those outlines for your blogs, podcasts or just good’old plain


I have downloaded and installed the application yesterday and directly got the feel of it…5 minutes later: BOINGGG!

Perhaps the power of OPML and Dave’s OPML Editor is not so apparant in

the beginning, but I believe this will become an integrated part of

‘Web 3.0’, ‘Blogs 2.0’, ‘Podcast 1.0’  ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Will be playing more with this soon (after my holidays though!), so stay tuned!
