I just found out that WavePhore's actually sending out 26,000 newswire
stories every day now: that's 26,000 XMLNews-Meta (RDF) records *and*
26,000 XMLNews-Story (NITF) documents, for a total of 52,000 new XML
documents every day, or over one million new XML documents every 20
days.*  I don't know the numbers from others using XMLNews.

All the best,


* Or over 1 billion new XML documents every 53 years -- not quite as
  fast as MacDonald's flips burgers, but people cannot read as fast as 
  they can eat.
