Some more very interesting work coming from the Google Code [code.google.com] site:


The Google data APIs ("GData" for short) provide a simple standard protocol for reading and writing data on the web. GData combines common XML-based syndication formats (Atom and RSS) with a feed-publishing system based on the Atom publishing protocol, plus some extensions for handling queries.

GData is based on Atom 1.0 (and RSS 2.0) but allows authentication and queries.
