Dave, et. al. did you know there is a huge RDF database of links that is as big as (growing every day) yahoo? And it's freely reusable? (I think you just have to have some kind of attribution stuff).
It would be sooo cooool if my.userland.com took advantage of this "open source yahoo" directory. I maintain about 6 subcategories myself and anyone else can join and contribute to it as well.
It's called the open directory project (formerly newhoo). http://www.dmoz.org
You can download an RDF dump of the whole hierarcy here: http://dmoz.org/rdf.html
If anything it could be a nice test case for Frontier 6 to chew on as a big XML file to play with.....
