In the aggregators session on Day 2 at BloggerCon I promised Jenny Levine that I would write up my plan to empower librarians and scholars to build distributed Yahoo-like directories, with the key ingredient that makes the Web work so well — competition. The idea is for geeks and librarians to work together, a dream of mine for a long time. As with weblogs and newspapers (see the Markoff interview below) the technology I propose would work equally well for librarians who work at Yahoo, as it would for those who don't. It's a decentralized application of OPML in all its glory. [Scripting News]
