Just a quick note, because I have a half drafted email to respond to
previous thread re the 'hNews' stuff, but haven't had the time to
finish it yet.  I work (part time) for the MST (not AP) and created
the "Value Added News" site and was a contributor to the draft
proposal.  There's a full explanation coming for the microformats
community (and I think you deserve one, but I've been working for a
different client for the whole of the last week), but there's no
intention on the part of the MST (nor, I believe, the AP, though I
don't speak for them) to freeze out the community nor "just do it by
ourselves" - I can see how we may have created that impression,

I'm trying to work out whether I can get to microformatsdevcamp, too,
though London -> San Francisco is a way to go (that said, I'm about to
travel to the US for three months anyway - just not sure if I can get
the dates to work.)
