Happy new year!

OK, I know I’m 4 days late … but its because we’ve been crazy busy working on numerous projects including: Facebook applications, dataportability.org, engagd.com,Tagurself and various other APML related projects.

In addition to all that, weve also been working away on the new Cluztr browser add-on and web site. All the details are still secret but it’s really going to be great. More word on that as we approach the launch.

New “my interests” APML widget now available

Now, you can display a widget of your interests derived from your clicks. The widget is also updated automatically as your interests change, from day to day. This widget displays your Attention Profile (APML), that is, your likes and dislikes, preferences and interests.

Support for APML

Cluztr has been long since been a supporter of APML and we’ve been working with APML.org workgroup to develop, refine and propagate the standard. APML stands for “Attention Profiling Markup Language” and consists of all the information online about what you read, write, share and consume.

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. The idea is to compress all forms of Attention Data into a portable file format containing a description of ranked user interests.

Many companies are already making huge sums of money off of your attention data. APML is a method for you to use it for our own purposes as well.

As your browse the web, with Cluztr, it creates your Attention Profile which you can link or export to any number of third-party online services that supports APML. Just grab the feed from the APML icon on your profile page.

Cluztr’s first third-party widget: Live Attention

Stan James, of Lijit, has put together a great application that leverages Cluztr’s API. It’s called “What is Stan watching right now?” or, more formally, Live Attention and allows anyone to follow an attentionstream without needing a download.

Clickstreams are now cleaner then ever
