Microformats – Increasing Visibility

Finally Microformats are getting the visibility they deserve. I found an excellent presentation about Microformats.

Here are some thoughts about Microformats from Dave Orchard. Dave looks at the current state of Microformats and raises some interesting questions about tools, integration into web/blog creation tools and extensibility. He says:

Microformats look really interesting. They give the ability to embed
structured data in the "master" presentation format, HTML. The key for
adoption is what the killer-apps are going to be that justify the extra
cost. There are some challenges with current tooling that would surely
be solved over time. I worry about the architectural issues of
extensibility and versioning, but I wonder if that's a carry-over from
my work on XML.
