I started this page shortly after sending this email and added just one
example of a podcast.

Since then, Joshua Kinberg and Mary Hodder have added several *simple*
media-info examples and the page has grown.  Thanks Josh and Mary, and
especially to Mary for the analysis of the implied schemas of the examples

I've done just a bit of wiki gardening/organizing to make the page a bit
more consistent.

If you are interested in simple media-info, please take a look at the
examples page, and if you know of any other representative examples, please
consider adding them in a similar format to what's already there.

In particular we could use a couple of simple "music" media-info examples.

Please be sure to read the top section *thoroughly* before editing this
page, and we'll all do our best to keep this page clean and simple.

In addition, working through some of the examples, I realized that it would
be good to note a few more aspects of what makes a good "*-examples" page
for microformats research when following the microformats process, and I've
added some more to the "examples" wiki page accordingly:


Please take a look.
