Thats something of what I'm being attempting to do with the
XML Deviant [1] column. I've tried to pick out the most interesting
and useful threads as they've taken place.

eclectic [2] is finer grained, being a daily summary of
the list traffic, but I hope its useful. A search facility will
be added to the site in the not-too-distant future (I hope).

Feedback on XML Deviant or eclectic is always welcome. I'm
keen to produce something of value.

I've also made several postings to the list recently providing
links to previous/relevant discussions on particular topics
(mostly from the archives). If people find these useful then I'll
continue to do so (if not, please say, and I'll stop).

Theres room on the eclectic site for people to post their own
comments and discussions too. While I don't want discussion to
be drawn away from XML-DEV, it might be a provide a place
for summaries to be posted if no-where else seems suitable,
or is available.

Contributions from others would also add additional perspective.

I believe Craig Chevrier (the XML.org Managing Editor) is keen
to expand/improve the XML-DEV 'home-page' as well.
