OpenId + Microformats Brainstorming

This is a public space for capturing some ideas on how OpenId and Microformats can work together.

Relevant Microformats

  • hCard - for profiles
  • XFN
    • rel="friend" etc. for marking up relationships between profiles
    • rel="me" for identity consolidation among profiles
      • Should Yadis be extended to support rel="me"?

Ideas for use

  • Identity providers could provide hCard marked up profile pages
  • re-use hCard (vCard) vocabulary for HTTP query based key-value pairs of information requested and returned

Microformats outside HTML

  • JSON representations of hCard etc.
