Udell wooed by OpenSearch

To be honest, I wasn’t even planning to enable RSS subscription to InfoWorld search. It just came for free. When that happens, it’s a sign that things are deeply right.

Jon Udell on InfoWorld has a play with A9's OpenSearch.

When I heard about OpenSearch, I wondered how hard it would be to integrate my new view of InfoWorld search as a “column” in A9. As I soon learned, it’s almost trivial.
I know I've been banging on about OpenSearch a bit since it was announced, but in the same way that it's parent RSS has rapidly changed the way we find out about things happening, I get the feeling that A9 are going to get the credit for instigating a rapid change the way searching hangs together.

Don't get me wrong, OpenSearch is a long way short of a search utopia but with a little bit of evolution [a couple of 1.x updates and then a version 2.0] I believe it stands a chance of becoming the utility search protocol that could knit together much of the web's search nodes in to a cohesive unit.

Time will tell as to the quality of my crystal ball skills. Nevertheless, reading between his lines, Jon Udell seems to agree that there is something in this worth watching.
