== Demonstration and Discussion Tips ==
+
-
 
+
-
Note about the demonstrations.  All demonstrations MUST:
+
-
* '''Use or produce content published in one or more microformats'''.  I suppose that should be obvious. ;)
+
-
* '''Be completed in 5-10 minutes''' from start to finish, ''including'' setup time.  We are working under strict time constraints, and thus I must cut-off demonstrations at the 10 minute mark so that we have time for the remaining demonstrations.  If your demonstration stalls or appears to not work, we will move onto the next demo and if we have time, may come back, so be sure you have practiced your demo and are sure it will work (you can assume presence of a network, but being able to also run locally is a good thing). If you can keep your demo to 5 minutes and allow for a few minutes of quick audience Q&A that would be ideal.
+
-
* '''Demonstrate end user benefit.'''  Showing the code that makes it behind the scenes and discussing the microformats used briefly is good, but strictly ''secondary'' to showing something working with actual microformat content.
+
-
 
+
-
== To Do ==
+
-
Please check the to do list to see if you can help out.
+
-
* '''ASAP: Anybody with who can help''' add [[hcalendar|hCalendar]] and [[hcard|hCard]] markup to the SXSW speakers and schedule/panels pages.  Email the result to SXSW webmasters so they can update the pages. Host the marked up version on your own site in the meantime, and for redundancy's sake.
+
-
** Need [[hcalendar|hCalendar]] markup for the events and [[hcard|hCard]] markup wherever speakers are listed with details/info/photo (feel free to put you name next to one to claim it and start working on it).

Title: Microformats: Evolving the Web
+
-
 
+
-
Summary:
+
-
 
+
-
As the web design, development, IA, and blogging communities have adopted more and more valid semantic (X)HTML, two key realizations have emerged: there is a need to express common information building blocks on pages such as people, addresses, events, reviews etc., and (X)HTML lacks the built-in semantics to do so.
+
-
 
+
-
Microformats are a set of simple open data formats that provide an evolutionary approach to easily expressing such common building blocks on today's Web.  In contrast to dedicated XML schemas, microformats for events or contact info are familar XHTML with semantic class names, making them trivial to embed in existing content, style with CSS, and interoperate with desktop applications.
