Mean Dean is beating the drum for The BlogMD Initiative, over at blogs4God. The MD is for Meta Data. I've posted a couple of ideas in their forum, and will continue to do so, but here are a few bits of Meta Data that would make my life easier with Who Links Who.

If you're not a geek you're thinking most of that information is there on the page why not just use that? True, the information is there, and you and I are blessed with pattern matching software and hardware to see it. However computer programs need things marked out for them with explicit detail to pick up on the information. That's what The BlogMD Initiative is about, creating the markings so we can write software to navigate the expanding blogsphere.

(Happy Dean?)
