Blog Note: AP Working On Enhanced News Search

Associated Press recently announced that it is "taking the initiative" (whatever that means) to improve both search and digital rights protection. The board of directors approved the plans to develop both tools and standards for these purposes, using AP's "unique understanding" of news, it looks like they want to be a central distribution service.

I wouldn't mind if they came up with some standard field names / metadata and encouraged newspaper web sites to use the headlines as title tags and make everything accessible via robot crawlers.
