  • Blog Post: Syndicated search engines broken - Part II

    A few days ago I grumbled at the poor state of the search engines specializing in syndicated (RSS'd or Atomized) content. Today, Michael Marshall Patrick is enthusiastically supporting a proposed standard by Bloglines that is trying to solve an apparent problem: "“Everything you blog goes on...
  • Blog Post: microformats viewer

    This is no ordinary blog post . It has embeded microformat content, but you won't see it.

  • Blog Post: Go and microformat stuff! ('cause it's going to happen anyway)

    JasonKolb, rightly in my humble opinion, is getting excited by the potential of the microformats , RSS and the clipboard (mRc?) combo (if you have no idea what I'm talking about, read on): "With the looming rise of the clipboard to transport XML, disguised as a text and using Microformats, the...

  • Blog Post: Microformats and Yahoo

    Jeremy Zawodny points to the Yahoo Tech site and highlights the fact that their reviews are now in the hReview microformat.

  • Blog Post: Semantic web heads - 'More doing, Less theorizing'. Please.

    The Guardian takes a look at where we are with Tim Berners-Lee's semantic web. Conclusion? Not very far given the promise of the idea. So far. In the article there seems to be some kind of aha! expressed by TBL - enough theory already! "Berners-Lee did concede that as with the world wide web...

Nice to see Ray also acknowledging the...

  • Blog Post: It is *my* Attention data and identity

    Assaf has provided a thought-provoking post about Structured Blogging . He discusses merits of XML / HTML vs. Microformats and has other critisisms of Structured Blogging (SB).
