Pubsub Founder Worried About Microsoft's Impact On Syndication Developers

Bob Wyman, founder of Pubsub (my favorite RSS search engine): Microsoft to dominate Blogging sooner than expected.

One correction. He implies that we have a "clear antipathy" toward the Atom format. That might be the common decision, but there has been no central decision making that I know of. A number of Microsoft employees continue to evaluate Atom to see if it'll be something we should support. But, keep in mind that's all on the content creation side of the fence.

On the aggregator side of the fence a team would have to be nuts not to consume Atom format since so many sites (including all the Blogger and Google Groups' sites) use Atom.

If we don't read in all the formats we'll be ignored by the marketplace.

I don't know of any plans to come up with a "Microsoft specific" format. If I learn about such I'll be the first to scream up and down. That said, we might add on extensions to RSS 2.0, which is allowable under the spec.

By the way, I know about most of the RSS investments Microsoft is making. If you are worried about Microsoft's entry into a market, I'd be happy to put you in touch with the various teams. So far we've been transparent with competitors and partners about where we're investing ourselves. Hint: we aren't doing everything.
