Schon ein wenig nerdig, aber durchaus nicht uninteressant: Andy Roberts startet »the delta web«, ein Projekt, an dessen Ende ein XML-Dialekt herauskommen soll, der die Veränderungen von Dokumenten im Web beschreibt.

The motivation for delta is that there’s no simple way to describe how things change on the Web. I know that’s sort of a generalization. However, people create documents and publish them to URI’s, and then, when they change these documents, they usually just overwrite the originals, or create new versions with new URI’s. To see what’s changed, others have to compare versions to find “diffs”, or else look for time stamps within documents to get hints on when individual entities were added or removed.
