I created a proof of concept of a booklist in OPML, both human and machine readable, that can point to other people's lists as well for discovery.

@ton I miss the "text" attribute so my tool failed on your OPML. Isn't "text" mandatory according to ?


Hi Tom. This is very cool! I'm curious though about your thoughts on the terms machine readable and federated.

I've always interpreted machine readable as requiring semantic encoding, but I don't see that in your data.

Is there something I'm missing, or do you have a different view of machine readability? Something else?
