Functional Blogging

As I May Think...: Will Scoble's book be out of date before it is read?: "What Kedrosky is speaking of is what we at PubSub have been referring to as 'Structured Blogging' and may be what Mark Fletcher of Bloglines/AskJeeves has listed as 'Functional Blogging' in presentations he's recently given. The basic idea is to go beyond 'mere' text in blogs and include structured XML that describes job-openings, events, new prices, press releases, updates to phone numbers and contact info, requests for proposals, etc. i.e. Using the now almost ubiquitous content syndication network to broadcast useful business *data* -- not just prose or text commentaries."

Oh, dear, more terms as obtuse as folksonomy ...
