Google, via its rich snippets, has reported that microformats has a 94% usage share (as compared with RDFa etc.). So how does the future look for microformats? In this session, we'll look closely at real problems with implementing microformats in HTML5 and how this can be done, and whether there will be a continuing place for them. We'll also look at emerging technologies and techniques, such as RelMeAuth and discuss advanced user techniques.

  • Question... From Your Name
  • Q: What are the most creative and inspiring uses you've seen, from all this Webby data? (Sorry I can't be there to ask in person...) -- Dan Brickley
  • Q: Nowadays, we have to choose the *format* in which we add semantics to our pages or fall into a vortex of repetition. Microformats, rdfa, pure rdf and/or microdata. What will be microformat's (project, community) role in the near future? Be responsible for the vocabularies used in microdata or be an alternative to microdata? -- andr3
