Social networking with OPML

Via Scobelizer (in an article in which he opines that podcasts aren't taking off as much as people expected because of the difficulty to find and preview them), follow the link from the title to Share Your OPML. At that site, you can up upload OPML for the RSS feed you read and/or the podcasts you listen to, then see what people who read or listen to the same things you do have in the way of feeds. Right now, you can only upload one file, so if you export two OPML files (one for podcasts and one for RSS feeds), you'll need to combine them in a text editor.

For the record, my feeds are here.


  1. They are not taking up any speed because they are more expensive to produce and to consume. It is that simple.

  2. I think that's a good thing; it means that podcasts are produced by people who are "serious" and so imposes a filter that isn't there for blogs, for example. :^)
