Neat stuff!

You've got as feed being published with space in the URL:

http://trial.urbantapestries.net/rss/index.rdf.cgi?author=dan dixon;n=0
http://trial.urbantapestries.net/rss/index.rdf.cgi?author=dan dixon

Where it ought to be:

You might want to make sure the output routine scrubs the URL for this sort
of thing.

Might you also want to publish a feed of what's been recently active?  This
to allow folks to find new threads and authors without having to manually go
looking.  Putting them into an overall directory file (in OCS or OPML) would
also help.

There's also the idea of randomness.  We publish a series of random feeds
generated and they're quite popular.  Their main use seems to be in giving
folks a look at data they might not otherwise go looking to find.  Our feeds
for random item headlines from all feeds and a random selection of new feeds
themselves are both pretty popular.
