Microformats: Evolving The Web

Room 17AB

Monday, March 13th

11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Microformats are simple semantic XHTML extensions for expressing numerous common concepts (people, events, etc.) on today's Web. Panelists will demonstrate and discuss microformats support in their websites.

Moderator: Tantek Çelik Chief Technologist, Technorati

Demonstration and Discussion Tips

Note about the demonstrations. All demonstrations MUST:

Proposed Demonstrations

I have deliberately kept a few of the demonstration/discussion slots open for new/latecomers/implementers to be able to demonstrate their cool microformat implementations. If you have a useful and dazzling microformat implementation that you can successfully explain and demonstrate in 5-10 minutes please add your name, and brief explanation of what you plan to demonstrate, and we'll see if we can fit folks in. Some of the criteria to help decide will include:

Proposed demos:

Microformats: Evolving The Web

Room 17AB

Monday, March 13th

Microformats are simple semantic XHTML extensions for expressing numerous common concepts (people, events, etc.) on today's Web. Panelists will demonstrate and discuss microformats support in their websites and tools.

Earlier Description

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.
