Cery cool. And exactly what I was looking for... Why is this case so

Ding ding ding! When you build publishing tools *and* consumption
tools, you immediately witness the benefits of microformats.

This was what I was trying to impress upon flock before I left! Now
we're getting closer to a real example!

I'll contact andrian and see what he has to say!
