I don't think it's Operator that's at fault.
I wrote a post about trying Google Maps
as soon as I heard they were using microformats. Looking up our
company address I could not pull any meaningful data out using
Operator, Tails or the LeftLogic bookmarklet.
Though it's great news I'm a little saddened that Google couldn't get
it right first time.
