Outlining is the core of CoffeeTalk. The internal structure of data is based on OPML. There are some example OPML files on

The OPML format has become a favorite amongst RSS readers like Google’s Reader, NewsGator. and many others. I see OPML files commonly referred to as ‘reading lists.’

A nice definition of what an outline is the following (from one of Purdue’s websites)

* A logical, general description
* A schematic summary
* An organizational pattern
* A visual and conceptual design of your writing

An outline reflects logical thinking and clear classification.

Replace ‘writing’ with ‘programming’, add some networking code, a sprinkle of object-oriented coding and you get CoffeeTalk.
