# Group Brainstorming

## Problem

See Chris Messina's original thoughts on microformats-discuss.

Not every page belongs to one user. We need a microformat to define a group of people.

There are two distinct problems here though.

The problem that Chris's proposal describes is actually just one of tagging. By tagging people with the same tag, you "place" them into a group as defined by that tag. That's the model presented by Chris's ASCII art diagram.

The simpler problem to solve is perhaps the Group equivalent of XFN

How does a person indicate that they belong to of a group?

How does a group indicate that a person is a member of that group?

## Purposed Structure

```--Group Name

|  +-- Member 1 (hcard)
|  |
|  +-- Member 2 (hcard)
|
+--+ Pool
|
+--+ Topic
|
+-- Post 1 (hatom)
|
+-- Post 2 (hatom)
