This morning we released a new user interface for My.UserLand.Com, our 
XML-based syndication aggregation server. Along with this new release is a 
new FAQ page, which I thought would be interesting to XML content developers:


Key points: We're compatible with My.Netscape.Com, building on RSS..

There are over 100 compatible channels, including The Motley Fool, Robot 
Wisdom, Internet Alchemy, MacWEEK, ZDNet, Webmonkey, Mozilla.Org and XML.COM..

The registration system is open to all members..

Our server scans each hour on the hour, the home page lists the changes 
during each day. Many sites are updating their RSS files several times a 
day, the most frequently recently updated ones rise to the top..

The service is open, we publish our channel list..

Not stated on the FAQ page, we are archiving all the XML text every night 
at midnight. So as this takes off, each news site leaves a trail behind, so 
that others can pick up the information later. Time is an important factor 
here, and we've captured it.

Now that the flow is happening, we're starting to build more aggregation 
services. The first step was to figure out the user interface. I think 
we're there now.

Questions, comments and suggestions are welcome.
