Blog owners will be able to view the list of their subscribers. On the flip side, if subscribers want their email address hidden from view, they can set their account to "private" in their Profile section. In fact, this option is in place now, if you want to use it.You can rest assured I'll not pass your addresses on to any third party or send you spam.

I've developed a specification which shows how to encode our general schema's metadata using only HTML [meta] tags. Along the way, I've also "Dublin Core-ized" our data schema, and tried to use DC tags wherever possible and appropriate.
What we'd like to do is get several (as many as possible) volunteers to apply this specification to their own weblogs, thereby beginning to actually 'publish' real metadata. At the same time, we call on everyone who is codingly-inclined to begin examining approaches for grabbing, parsing, slicing, dicing and presenting back this very same metadata.
