I'm Bud Gibson.  I'm founder of The Community Engine.  We help  
companies develop information communities around their products and  
services.   These communities allow companies to streamline their  
operations and gain Internet visibility.  My interest in microformats  
derives from my belief that *the* significant opportunity in online  
communities lies in distributed communities.  These distributed  
communities are essentially aggregations and remixes of individuals'  
and other groups' contributions.  Microformats enable that better  
than any other approach I have seen.

I have a BS in French and Linguistics from Georgetown, an MBA from  
Wharton, and a PhD from Carnegie Mellon.  In May 2006, I'll be  
leaving University of Michigan's Ross School of Business where I will  
have been on faculty for nine years.

I have a blog at:  http://thecommunityengine.com.
