What is threadsML?

threadsML is an idea for a standard way for applications to interchange threaded discussions with little or no data loss.

Why would you want to do that?

If you've ever needed to move a threaded discussion from one site to another, you know why. More exciting, threadsML would let users move discussions from email to IM to a discussion board to chat, etc.

It's XML-based, right?

Of course. We are currently discussing the merits of RDF, RSS, RSS 2.0, etc.

How do I join?

There's nothing to join except a conversation. See the links at the left.

There's no official leader of the group. Steve Yost was the initiator of the idea. For comments on this website, send mail here.
