hack ideas

Have an idea for a hack/project session? Please read What is a DevCamp? and then suggest something or add a "+1" to existing suggestions, and sign your suggestion or opinion with your Username with ~~~

  • microformats and user sign-up user interface - how can importing and subscribing to hCards help make user sign-up easier and thus get more users signed up quicker? Tantek
  • using hCard to build a self-updating address book - in the search for an address book/contact list that actually stays up to date, hCard may be the key. Beau Lebens
  • microWall - make sure to print a screen-shot of every microformat-savvy tool that comes up during the camp, and stick them on the wall. It will be an amazing backdrop for a group photo... Rohit
