XOXO brainstorming

Authors

Example Uses

XOXO Lists and outlines are used for numerous special purposes across the web. This section is here to document both best practices and recommendations.

Blogrolls

Background: See L.M. Orchard's post "Subscriptions Are Attention But What About Blogrolls".

Nearly all blogrolls are already published as XOXO on blog, but there is no obvious way to distinguish the XOXO blogroll from other lists in the content/header/footer of the blog.

Would it be enough to add the class name "blogroll" to XOXO blogroll lists? E.g.

<ul class="xoxo blogroll">
 <li><a href="...">...</a></li>
 <li><a href="...">...</a></li>
</ul>

Note that a blogroll is a superset of a subscription list.

Wishlists

Background: See L.M. Orchard's post: "I wish it were in XOXO"

Similar to blogrolls, what if we used the class name "wishlist"?

What are the distinguishing features of wishlists?

Is a wishlist item the same as a listing that is looking for an item? See: listing-examples, listing-formats, listing-brainstorming

Tagged Links

This one seems easier, because you could simply use a list of xFolk items, which is recognizable.

Alternatively we could also use the class name "linkroll".

But how far can we successfully take that method (of adding a new class name for each specific use of XOXO) scale and continue workng?
