[uf-discuss] Calais: a POSH project?

Via Techdirt [1] I found an interesting project called OpenCalais [2]. It seems designed to 
take arbitrary text documents and spit out semantic RDF.  

There's absolutely no mention of microformats on the OpenCalais web site, but I can see 
incorporating microformat markup into the output.  And, of course, any effort at making the 
Web more POSH is A Good Thing.

The site seems sparse on working code or examples, and I haven't even tried to download the 
developer package (needs a "developer key" -- not so Open, IMHO)
