== Oops -- I sent it to the wrong (microformats-rest) group. Damn you,


I am going to try and put together a "Microformats for Dummies"
presentation -- a 50-minute pitch of microformats to the
about-technical crowd, with no prerequisites and possibly some
(pre|mis)conceptions. The audience in broad strokes:

* actively uses Web today
* is vaguely familiar with HTML (FrontPage, Dreamweaver)
* stares blankly when "semantic markup" is mentioned
* understands general client-server interaction concept (surprisingly,
some even built C/S apps)

General goals:

* gain general understanding of what microformats are about
* introduce fuzzy yet warm appreciation of the bigger picture
(semantic web, future, etc.)
* shed light on microformats process and its implications (Community
Mark, etc.) on the modern business process (ok, this may be a touch
out of scope)
* give away bunches upon bunches of MF t-shirts

Any good pointers are appreciated.
