This week in Microformats #2

A quick-fire round up of microformats for the week of November 27th.

On the Wiki

  • Andy Mabbett has created some property cheat-sheets for adr and geo — small microformats most commonly found in hCard but which can be used separately as well.
  • To cope with the sheer number of examples and implementations now amassed for hCard, hCalendar and hReview, Andy Mabbett and Tantek Çelik have separated the lists of examples‑in‑the‑wild (hCard, hCalendar, hReview) and implementations (hCard, hCalendar, hReview) into separate pages. This seems an ideal cue to restate that anyone is entitled to include their implementations and microformat deployments on these pages. Just please link directly to the page where microformats can be found (rather than, or at least in addition to a front‑page).

From uf-discuss

Also, there’s ongoing discussion about the preference of using a mailing list over other collaboration mediums (such as message boards and IRC). The list is here to stay, but Edward O’Connor has linked to an RSS feed provided by Gmane, allowing you to subscribe to new posts without signing up for the mailing list.

On the web

  • The WHATWG Blog has announced the addition of a new link type in HTML5 for linking to feeds (rel="feed"). The post notes that this can make auto-discovery easier and also makes linking to hAtom feeds tidier.
  • One post that got away from the decentralised‑social‑networking round‑up last week was Glenn Jones’ excellent piece on how XFN‘s rel=me can already provide a strong backbone for spidering identities over the internet. See also Sarah’s post on Portable social networks.

‘This week in microformats’ aims to highlight the most active microformats discussion published in the preceding week by monitoring the microformats discuss mailing list, and the microformats tag on Technorati (and elsewhere). If you’d like to alert the editors to something, add a ‘thisweekinmicroformats’ tag.
