Meerkat: An Open Wire Service, is the O'Reilly Network's Web-based
syndicated content reader. It's based on Rich Site Summary (RSS), an XML
specification used for distributing news, product announcements,
discussion threads, and other assorted content as channels. Meerkat is
written in PHP, served up by an Apache Web server, and keeps its data in
a MySQL database.
This session's focus is the emergence of open services, XML's role
therein, and some of the PHP XML functionality and third-party tools
increasing PHP's visibility in the XML-based Weblication arena
