About Google Reader, APML and DataPortability

Just added a comment to Elias Bizannes’ blog in his article about APML and Google Reader.    (My comment may not be live until he approves it.)  He wrote the article back in October 2007 — and it is now February 2008.  Since then, the APML buzz has blossomed into the much broader and very popular DataPortability movement.
