W3C and Atom

2004-05-22 19:37

The Courtship of Atom by Kendall Grant Clark (XML.com) reports on the W3C/Atom discussions - would the W3C be a good home for it? I attended the 2004-05-18 ad-hoc meeting in New York that Kendall mentions. I don't think the Atom people necessarilly see the semantic web activity as the natural home, but it might be the most appropriate at this time. A new W3C Activity is a big deal. My primary interest is in the Atom API, since RSS1.0 is fine for my data needs. The API might link nicely to the RDF Data Access WG work.
