Mark Birbeck (the lead technical mind behind RDFa) has written an
interesting piece about HTML5, Microformats and RDFa. In the piece, he
explores distributed semantics extension (RDFa/XHTML2) vs. centralized
semantics extension (uF/HTML5). It's an interesting post because it
outlines the two philosophies at play and how they're affecting the
next-generation of web semantics.


No surprises in his conclusion (he thinks RDFa is the way forward)...
worth a read, even for the die-hard uFers, as several interesting points
are made along the way.
