So, introducing SEC Form 4 Info to hCard Format, a new ready-to-run solution included with Anthracite. It’s a set of three Anthracite documents and an Automator workflow to tie it all together. The latest form info is scraped from the SEC, a particular filing type is extracted, and then all those filings are harvested for contact information which is then converted to the hCard microformat. You can use Technorati to convert these hCard pages into Apple AddressBook .vcf files, I’ve seen it work with my own eyes! It’s pretty slick, if I may say so, and I know that many customers (and soon-to-be-customers) are going to like this, too.
Oh, and I never thought I’d be in the position to say this, but, a note to potential would-be review requesters (I’ve only had two to date): adding support for either microformats or OpenID in your product greatly increases the chance that I’ll blog about you! Huzzah! (Of course, having a good product helps a great deal as well).
