Scott, Paul, feel free to cc both me and Kevin Marks on Pingerati requests
so we can make sure they don't fall through the cracks.  Sometimes we get
overwhelmed a bit with all the stuff going on.

And yes, #technorati channel works to get a hold of us too - Kevin and I are
usually both in there, at lots of various hours.

There are definitely people and efforts doing both.

hAtom results make a lot of sense Scott, perhaps you could document what
you've come up with specifically (for hAtom search results) on an
hatom-examples page on the wiki so others could do the same?
