Latest craze on the web, sharing your OPML files.

Dave Winer's pet project "Share your OPML" launched and has been well received. (For those new to OPML)

I've been a big supporter of sharing OPML feeds for a long time now and this new idea is trully one in the right direction. As netvibes doesn't provide an opml-export option I'll have to submit one of my old OPML files which I managed to pull off liferea. You can take a look at my shared OPML file here(rather old one).

The other interesting feature is that Share-OPML let's you see who else has also subscribed to your feeds. Another neat feature is the feed-rankings page which shows which RSS feed is subscribed to the most. One can pick up a few good feeds from there. Another cool one is the most prolific subscribers page , people who live,breathe and crunch RSS feeds. As expected, Chris Pirillo is numero uno.

If you are using a Desktop based RSS feedreader or Bloglines there will be an option to export all your RSS feeds into a file. That file format is OPML. Read the Wikipedia article for more info.
