There's been a flurry of talk surrounding the use of
aggregator-derived subscription lists as as a source of attention
data. Right now most of the aggregators do import/export via OPML.
But there is another source of broadly attention-like subscription
lists, people's blogrolls. As and when the blogging tools start
supporting microformats directly, these should be available as XOXO.
Until such a time, maybe someone has most of the code in place to
create a service that will scrape a blog, use heuristics to recognise
the blogroll and output this tweaked to conform to Attention.xml.
Just a thought ;-)
