Using Microformats: Gateway to the Semantic Web

In this podcast Karl Stolley discusses his article, "Using Microformats: Gateway to the Semantic Web," which appears in the September, 2009 issue of Transactions on Professional Communication. In the article Stolley explains and describes the use of several microformats, which make information marked up in HTML available for use in applications outside of traditional web browsers. Because microformats consist of minor additions to the HTML backbone of common webpages, they represent a simple but significant move toward what Tim Berners-Lee has called the “Semantic Web”—but without requiring the technical and practical shifts and time demands of a complete XML-based semantic web development approach.

  1. Microformats and Semantic Markup—Emily Lewis (Mix 11)

    http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/MIX/MIX11/EXT19 Microformats are simple HTML design patterns for adding semantics to your web content. With additional semantic meaning, your content becomes more findable, extensible, standards-compliant and usable. And when built on a solid foundation of Plain Old Semantic Markup (POSH), your content also becomes more accessible. Emily Lewis, author of Microformats Made Simple, will discuss the benefits of microformats, as well as tools and resources to help you start publishing right away. But the focus will be on the practical application of microformats using POSH: link-based microformats, XFN, hCard and hCalendar. Emily will also discuss what HTML5 means for microformats, particularly microdata and the new semantic elements.
