The idea of adding OAI-PMH to 'blogs has been floated on usr/lib/info. From the post and comment it seems a simple hack. The question then becomes, should it be done. OAI has been used, so far, to provide access to more substantial works. If all 'blogs suddenly had a OAI publish button as well as an RSS and e-mail publish buttons would it just muddy the information waters? Or would this be a use that could move OAI into another arena and gain wider acceptance?
