The company behind Touchstone, Faraday Media, will announce later today their latest initiative, namely an intent to create a new standard in the Attention Economy: the Attention Profiling Mark-up Language (APML).

In essence, APML will allow users to export and use their own Attention Profile in much the same way that OPML allows them to export their reading lists from feed readers.
Chris Saad, CEO of Faraday, posits the following use of APML:
Well done guys, APML may well be the inflection point the Attention Economy has been seeking!
