ESS, Event Share Specification, is currently in it's 0.91 version and will be where it will stay until something major is needed for future usage. It is drafted format, it was sampled for usage inside an RSS container element. We took this approach because at the time, RSS was the most popular source of syndication, but wouldn't always be. Now that Atom is gaining popularity, I have decided to add an appedix to the specification with a sample usage of ESS inside an Atom container element. The sample below will be attached to the specification.

               Security is a big deal in all network applications, but it's even more important 
               in applications deployed on the Web. Every day ASP.NET developers unwittingly 
               deploy sites that are vulnerable to SQL injection attacks, cross-site scripting 
               attacks, hidden-field tampering attacks, and other hacks. In a fun-filled and 
               action-packed evening, Jeff demonstrates the most common and debilitating types 
               of attacks used against ASP.NET Web sites, and provides step-by step 
               instructions on how to code against them. Be warned: what you see here might 
               scare you!

In fact, if you have a item-based syndication format, ESS will most likely fit perfectly.
