It’s just data

Anatomy of a Well Formed Log Entry

Authentic Voice of a Person.  Reverse Chronological Order.  On the web.  These are essential characteristics of a online Journal or weblog.

Given the statements above, a well formed log entry would contain at a minimum an author, a creationDate, and a permaLink.  And, of course, content.

As to content, a well formed log entry would have well formed content: in the case of HTML, this would include characters properly escaped, tags perfectly nested and closed.

Content would not be limited to HTML.  It would include images, audio, and video.

There would also be a number of standard extensions:

Footnote

At the present time, I would like limit the scope of this wiki to describing a conceptual data model of what constitutes a well formed log entry.  Out of bounds for the moment is any discussion of serialization formats, fine grained data types (lets discuss the whethers and whys of xsi:types later).  I'd also prefer to shy away from detailed discussions about specific use cases in applications as of yet as, except as specifically required to demonstrate the need for a specific entity in the conceptual data model.

If you are willing to live within these bounds, please do contribute to the wiki.  Expand on the extensions on separate pages.  Link to more detail on attributes.  Let everyone know what are essential requirements for your application.


MIME types.  A well-formed entry should specify the MIME type of each piece of content.

Weblogging Data Model: Hello Mr. Christian

Shelley,
I have to drive to a meeting in 5 minutes so I apologize for my brevity.

I agree with you on author, date and unique location. Especially the part about not limiting permalink to a HTTP URL.

I have thoughts on the following your description of content (category) which I seem to disagree with much of

grouping of related items (a collection of children)

Related items in what sense? If it is a log entry does this mean other log entries by the same author on the same topic hosted on the same site or something different?

Either way I dislike it.

content directly

Cool.

some variation of the content

This is a good idea but needs to be better defined. I can see alternates provided for audio or image content as variations of content.

Another like item

Again the vague term item. Isn't this redundant given the "collection of like items" mentioned previously. Can you clarify?

Posted by Dare Obasanjo at

Dare: Shelley has comments enabled on her site.  ;-)

Speaking of shelley's site... a typical weblog entry on her site is a collection of text and pictures.  Occasionally, this is true of my site as well, however less often so.

I think the Udell model should be called the "Journalism" model, not the "information engineering" model.

Good comments Dare, excellent -- but any way I can you to copy same over there? I promise not to bite. Nibble maybe...

Posted by Shelley at

Great idea Sam!  Can you give any further guidance about what would be in scope for this excercise? 

Would ideas about author identity be welcome?  Example: Support for simple email identity or public key identity on a per feed or per item basis.  What about advanced content versioning ideas?  Example: I'm interested in full content diffs being supported in certain scenarios.

In my humble opinion, it's just a matter of time before these concepts work their way into the weblog data model and this seems like a perfect opportunity to capture current thinking.  However, I'd like to ensure that I'm not way off base before throwing them into the mix.

Posted by Joe Madia at

Joe: why don't you jot down your ideas in for an IdentityExtension and lets see what people think.  Don't forget to update the FrontPage to link to your proposed extension.

Excerpt from Don Box's Spoutlet at

Sam, I don't know if this was intentional with removing the other MoinMoin default content: the UserPreferences wiki page, linked from the upper right in the template, lets users provide their names for use in the RecentChanges page.  The page acts as a placeholder for calling the [[ UserPreferences ]] macro.

Excerpt from the iCite net development blog at

Perhaps a better question might be "What is a the minimal well formed weblog entry?"

I'm writing a desktop blogging app for OS X, and the timing of this discussion is excellent.

As much as I dislike suggesting a lowest common denominator approach, a simpler format should lead to broader and more rapid adoption.

Optional items in the manner of RSS would work for me.

Posted by Andrew Duncan at

Andrew, the RSS 2.0 answer to this question would be:

  <item><title>x</title></item>

I don't believe that you can set the bar much lower.

I'm of the opinion that author, date created, and URI are not unreasonable things to ask that modern content management systems maintain and expose.

Posted by Sam Ruby at

I think some type of "description" as to what is on the other side of the permalink is warranted.

Also, what is behind the permalink? What is included as well-formed content? Seem some clarification would be helpful to this discussion.

Posted by Norman Walsh at

Sam, someone is editing the wiki and removing comments and links. This isn't going to work -- a wiki is supposed to be a community device.

And Dare, I was trying to be teasing yesterday, but you'll have to forgive me if I would rather address your comments in the comments to my post, to which they were directed. My trackback entry here is not a direct comment here, to be addressed here. Not really.

As a courtesy, would you mind copying your comment to that post?

Posted by Shelley at

Shelley, can you point out a specific instance of an inappropriate deletion?  Once you do, I will figure out a way to deal with the problem.

And I strongly agree with your point re: where Dare's comment should be directed.

Posted by Sam Ruby at

Sam, I think that the link to my, Tim's, and James' entries on the model were appropriate, and they were deleted. And in another instance, when someone posted a reference to an existing RDF/XML model, I made a note about keeping things at higher conceptual level. I don't think it was antagonistic, but perhaps people thought it was unnecessary, or inappropriate, or messy. Maybe it was, but mine and I think it was Joe's and Danny's comments were deleted.

Not sure what one can do in the wiki now that won't get deleted.

Posted by Shelley at

I can back up Shelly's observations, there appeared to be a massive re-org of the main page and some links and comments did get dropped. I like the re-org, it makes things much clearer, and I chalked the omissions up as an accident. There is nothing I observed to indicate maliciousness in the deletions. I have since gone back and re-threaded some of the definitions I had added.
