  • "What's next for the Internet" in "CNNMoney.com" syndication of an article from "Business 2.0 Magazine" (2007-07-03) by Michael V. Copeland.

    "We've had the problem of overpromising in this industry; a lot of us who were working on semantic Web technologies early on saw the potential and got a little excited. It has taken much longer to realize than we thought. One thing Web 2.0 has taught everybody is that simpler is better. Find something useful and iterate on that." [- Nova Spivack]

    Tom Coates, whose day job at Yahoo involves working on just these issues, thinks the Web 2.0 crowd is already taking care of the problem. He points to tagging and microformats that add some of the same metadata to webpages that semantic technologies offer.

    "I call it the dirty semantic Web," Coates says from his London office. "It may not be the pristine Berners-Lee view of the world, but it is headed in the right direction."

  • "The Tech Lab: Bradley Horowitz" in "BBC News | Technology" (2007-06-29)

    Where we find people codifying big blocks of entities - whether in a movie database or books or restaurants, or business entities - I am comfortable taking a pragmatic approach so long as the companies contributing their respective intellectual property are committed to open standards and strategies.

    It will happen through small pieces loosely joined, and it is emerging already. Different domain specialists will grab different domain patches.

    Once we begin to have this information we can then put it in microformats on the web, which are machine-readable. So then in an automated fashion crawlers can take advantage of that structure.

    ...

    The web itself is sloppy, loose and unstructured - and these, by the way, are virtues!

    But in making it easy to add microformats, which are just machine-readable, coded bits of structure, we let machines talk to machines and ambiguity over which restaurant I am blogging about, or which film, or which person, will end.

    This represents a huge step toward the vision of the semantic web, and will not only create entirely new applications, but will also solve problems that users today have come to accept as part of "life on the web."

    This structure should be optional, not imposed. The onus is on us, the builders of the tools, to make it brain dead simple to add this structure.

  • "Les microformats donnent du sens aux pages web" in "01 Informatique" - (2007-06-29) issue 1911 by Frederic Bordage. [1] with a french interview of Tantek Çelik [2]682882852_15a6587a30_m.jpg

Web Sémantique. Ces formats transforment les pages web en bases de données structurées. L'indexation devient ainsi plus riche et plus pertinente. "Une approche du web sémantique pragmatique et simple à mettre en oeuvre". C'est ainsi que François Goube, PDG du moteur de recherche JobiJoba.com qualifie les microformats. (...)

  • "Microformats: People First, Machines Second" in "Electronic Design" (2007-06-21) by William Wong. ED Online ID #15742.

    It's amazing what you can find bouncing around the Internet. I stumbled across microformats while looking for something else. Microformats are a way of embedding semantic information on a Web page. They're designed to augment human-readable versions so software can easily and accurately extract the same information. Also, they're based on a small set of open data formats built upon existing and widely adopted standards.

  • Accessify.com announce HTML Mastery a new book by Paul Haine, with a chapter on microformats (2006-11-27).
  • .Net magazine (UK), cover date December 2006, has tutorial on microformats, by Rachel Andrew (tutorial not available on-line)
  • MacPeople, a paper magazine about Macintosh in Japan, contained an article about microformats on its 12/2006 issue, written by Nobuyuki Hayashi.
  • Cover story in iX 11/2006 p. 62-65: Mehrwert-Markup (German: additional value markup)
  • Patterns for High-Integrity Data Consumption and Composition, in "The Architecture Journal", an online journal of web architecture published by Microsoft, mentions microformats as a way to maintain high data fidelity in loosely coupled, highly federated systems. "The considerable variety of data these days includes an extensive array of XML-based formats, as well as increasingly widespread, lighter weight data formats such as the JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) and microformats."
