Thanks for all your replies to my XPN Idea,
I started a XPN-examples page, to see if we can get this off of the
ground. ( http://microformats.org/wiki/xpn-examples )
A couple of replies to the discussion:
Steve Ganz; Former and current would be good additions, and thank's alot
for posting what you've already done at linkedIn, I added it to the
wiki. I can see some problems with XFN there, so we'll probably need to
look into that.
Tara Hunt; Those are good additions too.(general question:) Can we add
those to the examples pages, or would we need to make a XPN-ideas page, too?
Ben Buchanan; I don't really agree with you there, there are plenty of
web development company's that have clients they do not concider
friends. While there are those that do, I don't think we should alienate
those that don't. A relationships microformat which incorporates both
XFN and XPN would be a great solution indeed.
You are completely right about sliced and design not being a
relationship. You are also right about defining global business
relationships, It seems I wanted to define too much.
Tantek Çelik; Thanks for your reply, I decided to jump in and make a
wiki page. I understand your concerns about it not being real world
examples, But (I think) in essence any portfolio or client list
currently tries to define those relationships.
Jonathan Williams; If a webdesign company made a website, it's made by
the company; not by it's individual members. This would pose problems
with projects not done by a company but by a group of individual
persons. In that case the client relationships would still be legimate,
right? It does have some crossover with hResume, I agree.
As I am fairly new at this, I wouldn't mind any gentle directions as to
what I should and should not do.
