Debbie, You can do better than read it--pull his RSS feed (http://xml.coverpages.org/covernews.xml), as I do for the XML intranet home page that I maintain at LexisNexis. And speaking of my XML work there, I'm often asked by co-workers questions of the form "do you know anything about the XyZFooBarML standard? It's an XML DTD/Schema for blah blah blah..." and then it turns out that Robin has a whole XyZFooBarML page, and I can reply to the e-mail a half hour later sounding convincingly like someone with a good overview of where it came from and where it is. One thing that makes these pages particularly useful is that Robin wades through the self-congratulatory press releases from various software companies and consortiums and extracts the important parts, saving us all tons of time. Even just scanning the dates on the entries helps gauge activity in a particular area. I could go on...
