OpenSearch

Early on in Feedster’s life, we had Michael Fagan doing an internship at the company. Among the various things he worked on, he added support for A9’s meta search format (basically RSS with some extensions).

I was looking around the A9 web site for information about it and found that it had been forked out to OpenSearch.org.

Turns out that Micheal continued to work on it.

It looks like it has evolved into a very functional spec for supporting meta searching.
