Microformats + Flash: Who knew?

Microformats in YourMinis

One aspect of microformats that’s not been widely discussed or perhaps even considered is their interaction with Flash apps like YourMinis… you might be guffawing there, but fer real — it’s not just shiny shiny!

Microformats in YourMinisOk, so check this out. Go grab the YourMinis extension (recently updated!) and install it in Firefox. Restart, as usual, and now, whenever you’re on a page with microformatted content, you can launch the extension to “suck out” the data and toss it into your app of choice…

It only gets better from here as YourMinis can be used to unify your experience across sites… So if you thought that semantic web is only good for HTML, well, guess again… especially with the Adobe-Mozilla deal in place, expect more very interesting developments in the microformats-slash-rich-interface department very soon.
