== Original Proposal ==
 
 
 
Original proposal as submitted to the Where 2.0 BOF proposal form:
 
 
 
=== Title ===
 
 
 
Geo Microformats BOF II: Developing a "[[directions]]" microformat
 
 
 
=== Describe the people who would be interested in attending this BOF ===
 
 
 
Anyone interested in *simple* standards for publishing and sharing geo related information on the Web, in particular directions information.
 
 
 
=== Which evenings(s) are you available to host your BOF? ===
 
 
 
I am available to host the BOF on June 13th only.  My recommended time is from 6:30pm-7:30pm.
 
 
 
=== Full description of this BOF Maximum 250 words, about 35 lines.* ===
 
 
 
Last year at the inaugural "Where 2.0" conference, the Microformats BOF brought together key folks in the geo and microformats communities and together we were able to brainstorm and develop the "geo" and "adr" microformats.

During the opening keynote at the Mix06 conference this past March, Tim O'Reilly engaged Bill Gates in a discussion about microformats.  During that conversation, Bill Gates specifically noted that we need microformats for contacts, events, and directions.

http://radar.oreilly.com/archives/2006/03/directions_microformat_leading.html
 
 
 
The first of those two have been well defined by hCard and hCalendar microformats.  However, a directions microformat has yet to be defined.  Research has begun towards the development of a directions microformat.
 
 
 
http://microformats.org/wiki/directions-examples
 
 
 
The goal of this BOF is to once again bring together key interested folks in the geo and microformats communities, discuss the work on the directions microformat to date, and  brainstorm on proposals for a directions microformat.
 
 
 
=== Brief description of this BOF Maximum 50 words, about 7 lines.* ===
 
 
 
Tim O'Reilly and Bill Gates recently discussed microformats, and the need for a directions microformat became clear.
