Attention.xmlis an open standard to track attention metadata such as what you readand what you would like to learn more about. So far there has been alot of talk around the idea and what it could mean for synchronization,resource discovery, and social networking. Technorati and Steve Gillmor have talked about the idea but there has been no implementation to show how you could use this open format with existing applications such asweb browsers and feed aggregators to make sense out of your dailyactivity. Until now.

Speaking of attention, Adam Bosworth paid a lot of it on the current Gillmor Gang. Udell and O'Grady provided metadata. CNet provided additional food for thought.
