Distributed publishing: a demo

I have been talking for some time about creating a method of putting something on one web site and having it published across the web. This is very different from making a link, or using RSS feeds, in both the way it works and its implications.

I have now found a way to use the online word processor Zoho Writer to do this, and I have written about it here: http://www.owenkelly.net/2007/03/13/zoho-for-distributed-publication/ I would be VERY HAPPY if some of you could read this, comment, and if possible try it out by cloning the essay and republishing it on your site.

Even if you only do this on a temporary basis then it will be very useful research for me. I need to see if it actually works, and to do that I need to see it working on some sites where I had nothing to do with the design, layout or content 🙂

I have contacted Zoho about the idea and their initial reaction was highly enthusiastic. They have asked their development team to go through my article and comment. If the developent team are happy with the changes to Zoho Writer I am suggesting then this might actually turn into a fully functional real-world project.

Those who have been keeping up with my wanderings will probably understand why this is a key step forward for the whole idea of a memi.

Yeee hah!!!
