Attention Profiling – APML December 10, 2007

Posted by Andre Vellino in Citation, Collaborative filtering, Digital library, Recommender, Recommender service.

Paul Lamere’s blog post on APML (Attention Profiling Markup Language) points us to a Beginners Guide, which in turn offers a basic survey. The main APML web site offers this definition:

APML allows users to share their own personal Attention Profile in much the same way that OPML allows the exchange of reading lists between News Readers.

For a science library user, this kind of profile definition may be possible, but likely only useful in combination with a Library social bookmarking site such as CiteULike or Elsevier’s 2Collab (see also Richard Ackerman’s recent preview of new features in 2Collab.)
