How is mood information useful? I can think of some silly examples,
but I don't really see how knowing what someone's when they wrote a
particular blog entry would be useful, or what a tool could do with it
-- remember, microformats are about solving problems.
What *would* be useful would be some way to mark up where you are
writing a blog entry / news item, etc, from or about. Perhaps hCal has
the right semantics for this? ("on date X at time Y I was in location
I'm not sure if there's much existing semantic HTML for this. My guess
would be that currently people say "I'm writing from MacWorld" and
then link MacWorld to the event information. Simply embedding an
hCalendar item discussing the event probably isn't enough -- someone
could simply be discussing the event.
Anyone else think this would be an interesting area for further
research of existing examples -- or even better, have done research in
this area already?
