Innovators of the Web Conference

Innovators of the Web Conference - featuring a session on microformats2:

microformats are published on millions of sites, providing a standard simple API for the data on those pages with no additional URLs, file formats, callbacks etc. Similar approaches have been tried as well (e.g. RDFa, microdata).

Lessons learned over 8 years have been incorporated into new HTML5 elements and microformats 2.0 for better accessibility, more efficient markup, improved semantics and a direct mapping to JSON for API and other data consumers.

Questions from @joshuarudd on the Etherpad:

  • Q: How long until we can use *just* Microformats 2 classes?
    • A: For simple single-element pieces of data, go ahead and use just microformats2.
  • Q: Do services like Google already support them?
    • A: microformats Microformats Parsers developers are currently working on updating their code to add microformats2 support in the next 6 months. Google doesn't support microformats2 yet, however, they've shown a desire to support multiple formats, including microformats, microdata, and various versions of RDFa, thus it's likely they would support microformats2 as well when it's starts to see rising adoption.
