All hands to contribute to story on RSS and Atom

Stephen Baker

Jon Garfunkel is well into a story about RSS and Atom, but while he waits for final sources to call back, he's asking readers for help:

[C]ome up with the particular faults of RSS, and also illustrate a model of how it could be completely re-imagined. And you also might want to deliver something on the order of 5,000 words, which is where I'm at right now.

Those with a Biblical bent should pay special attention. RSS and Atom offer rival creation stories, Jon writes, drawing parallels with Genesis. And he says that like Jacob and Esau, they must battle over inheritance. I'm wondering if Cain and Abel fit into the story. But careful not to confuse Atom with Adam.
