Interesting. I'll definitely will have a look at this.

Well, this is not entirely true. I've been working on Mimir [1] on and off for
about 2 years now, and I share most of your ideas as you might have read in my
blog [2].

I do share the opinion of others here that we should fully utilise the existing
Jabber installed base, though. In my view, news providers might run their
own pubsub service, and we utilise the Jabber network for quickly distributing
news notifications, using hierarchies of pubsub repeaters.

Keep up the good work.
