What is NewsML? I ask my friends in class… Some shrugged their shoulders while some tried to explain to me. But the verbosity supersedes me. At this point in time as I type this entry… I have absolutely no clues what exactly is NewsML. But for certain it’s got to do with news and some form of technology.
According to NewsML for dummies (i.e. me 😦 ):
NewsML is a media independent standard for describing news in an electronic service environment.NewsML defines an XML based language for expressing the structure of news , associated metadata,and relationships between news, throughout their lifecycle

Frankly, I still don’t exactly get NewsML… Worse than a dummy? Haha! I’m praying hard Mr Choy ain’t going to test us on NewsML for the finals…
