For quite some time I’d wanted to start a Microformats news blog, that would talk in more plain terms about microformats, acting as a sister to the Practical Microformats wiki, preserving the Microformats dot org blog for technical news and discussions. Of course I never got around to it and instead have used my blog or postings to the microformats-discuss list to spread news of new adoptions or implementations.
Now, however, it seems that John Allsopp (of Westciv fame) has picked up the ball with Microformatique — covering all things regarding “data at the edges”. On top of that, there have been a number of good articles and posts recently worth a read:
- Jeremiah Owyang: Understanding Microformats for the Non-Technical Web Professional or Marketer
- John Allsopp: Add microformats magic to your site
- also by John: The Big Picture on Microformats
