Kevin Marks and I talked with Jen Pahlka and Brady Forrest of CMP
Media and O'Reilly (respectively) about a microformats session at Web
2.0 Expo in April the other night. Brady needs a paragraph describing what
we'd like to do -- and there's no reason we couldn't split up and do
one "programming w/ microformats" track coupled with a "designing for
I'm also on the design track program committee and have some
influence generally over what's presented in the workshops...
microformats and identity feature prominently so far, but I am keen to
contextualize this stuff in real people's work (i.e. "microformats are
a pragmatic tool for creating web applications, here's how", etc).
So, our tasks are to come up with:
1. a paragraph by the end of the week describing our take on how
microformats could be presented at the Web 2.0 Expo
2. I need to fill out the application form by next week in order to
get our topic included.
I could certainly use some help putting this together -- and suggest
that we use the wiki to formulate our summary and application.
