Live Feeds: News and MIME at 11
    garym - 2002-09-18 12:59   -   SportWire Web News
We're going about this the wrong way. This is an open comment to all internet news feed providers. Providers are stuck in 80's vintage mindsets, offering their news in the staid old formats of FTP, or telnet.

Development has begun to migrate Sportwire to true NewsML and SportsML as a vendor-independent news and stats data representation. Vendor XML news feeds will be translated into NewsML/SportsML documents and stored in the relational database in this open standard structure; new components added to the SportPage website tools to enable pulling the original SportsML objects out of the relational data. The target date for the first working versions (supporting ice hockey) is April 12th, 2002.
