I'm a little late to the game, having not picked up on the specifics  
of Microformats until the dConstruct '06 talk. Since then we (a small

been participating a little here...

A tiny handful of people have seen the alpha version - and we're  
presently desperately trying to fix the major issues. We'd really like  
the community's feedback next; and I will make the beta-ready version  
available within the week (you can have the alpha if you _really_ want  
- but I do not recommend it! - just email me).

testers, has just posted an article with WebCards in it, at
