Hi, I'm SamRose

See: for more about me.

Knolicules why should google have all of the fun? Every wiki page could be a "knolicule"...

mashing up microformats with RDF and other open data

Looking for feedback on how developers can easily collect microformat data sources. Like, for instance right now I can grab an RDF feed from source slike those described on this page

But, (beyond hAtom), are spidering and indexing my only option for accessing microformats? Any suggestions that can be offered are appreciated.

Note from SamRose: I also realize that REST is one route...

Affiliation idea

Parking this here now. Thinking about affiliation ideas, like

Basically, a widely useful xhtml declaration of affiliation. "I am affialiated with open ID, Microformats, etc."

By placing the chicklet or graphic link on our site, we declare in xhtml (semantic) data that we are affiliated with something. Now, I could then take that data and parse it along with other data about a person.

Maybe there is something that already accomplishes this in microformats?

Pledge Examples Draft page

working on a Draft page for pledge-examples, that I will move to pledge-examples when finished.

Pledge Examples

This page is a documentation of examples where people are pledging money for different reasons online without simultaneously paying on the spot the money pledged.

Why Pledge Without Paying?

Generally, on the web, "pledging" money has been done in conjunction with donating money. So that pledges are simultaneaously donations that are paid immediately via online ecommerce tools (like paypal).

Increasingly, people have been using online environments to collectively raise money for different purposes. This is leading to situations where people prefer to first pledge money before paying.

Real World Examples section

  • Flat list at a minimum. The real world examples section should be at a minimum a flat list of examples. See further down for what a good example has.
  • Grouping into categories can help. A giant flat list of examples can sometimes be difficult to navigate and analyze as a whole. Consider grouping related examples into a flat list of categories. If you're not sure how to categorize the examples, or if there are multiple axes across which you could categorize the examples, ask on the mailing list and/or irc channel
