Introduction To Microformats Article

0 comments suggest edit

Lest you think I sit around spending all my time on computer games and soccer, I also try to write occasionally.

Today an article I have been working for a while has finally been published on DevSource. It is entitled a A Developer’s Introduction to Microformats and attempts to present a clear introductory look at Microformats. This is my second article for DevSource, the first being one I helped that crazy Bob Reselman write.

I was fired up to write this article after attending the Mix06 conference. Hearing Bill Gates mention Microformats (whether O’Reilly fed it to him or not) highlights the fact that Microformats are poised to really take off. There are some detractors and potential real problems with syndicating Microformats, so it will be interesting to see how they are solved.

In any case, check it out and let me know what you think. Did I present it well?

And before I forget, big ups to the Microformats mailing list for helping me think through some of these topics I covered.
