Steve Gillmor is going to be speaking at the next eBig Blogging and RSS SIG meeting. The topic is AttentionXML:

Steve Gillmor, journalist with eWeek, will join us to talk about AttentionXML, a concept he’s been instrumental in forming. AttentionXML is a new technology initiative that will present a richer view than that available through just a static list of rss feeds. This new standard, still under discussion and development, will help you manage your blogroll, turning it from a list into an interactive, filtered stream of content.

The event is a ways outside of my normal stomping ground, but well worth the trip.
