I'm new to this community but I'd like to contribute to the advancements
of a semantic web. Please don't bash on any of my noob mistakes :)
I was browsing the to do list and stumbled across the "microformat
playground" idea (http://microformats.org/wiki/zen-garden). However, it
seems the wiki page has been untouched for at least 8 months and the
links on the bottom point to a broken page. I think such a site would
benefit the spread of microformats. Please tell me if such a site
I've cooked up a quick site, temporarily available at
It runs on CakePHP and is currently using Blueprint for basic typography
and grid (temporary.. needs a real design). As of right now, people can
register but both registered users and guests and submit xhtml and
styles. Entries submitted have a flag and appear on the site only after
the entry is approved by admins. All visitors can vote for entries (once
per IP). There are more details but everything can be changed (maybe
even redesign from scratch).
I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in working on such a
project, perhaps as a revival of the proposal on the wiki. I'll gladly
host and buy a domain if people are interested.
