OPML at last

I've been resistant to OPML, feeling that "outlining" wasn't a comfortable format for things I do. Fact is, I think I didn't quite get it, but I'm perhaps a bit closer now thanks to a problem I wanted to solve.
I have spent a lot of time forwarding stuff to other people, and indeed I think finding-and-forwarding is probably a pretty good summary of my specialty as a librarian. This morning I started hand-coding a table of things I've sent to people in the last couple of weeks. How very Web 1.0. And then OPML Manager fortuitously crossed my path, and I decided to give it a whirl as a more grownup way of solving the problem. I'm pretty pleased with what resulted, at least for starters.
I'm not sure just where this leads, but it's been a couple of months since last I was so involved in emerging technologies, and it feels pretty good to be at it again.
