Hi Glenn,

I work on http://identi.ca the http://laconi.ca microblogging
software, available under the GNU Affero General Public Licence and
we're all ears for improving in any way we can. You can talk to us
either on this list or at

Perhaps you can use http://identi.ca as your demo case as we already
have the things you'd like to see. Is there anything we can do to help
you out?

Currently, we support the following:
* hCard
* hAtom
* bunch of rels (tag, license, group, member, prev, next, in-reply-to, home...)

e.g., http://identi.ca/csarven

I'll take this as an opportunity to ask the microformats community for
their comments and suggestions to make http://identi.ca more
"microformats friendly".
