  1. Emily Lewis Builds the Web One Microformat at a Time

    Carl and Richard talk to Emily Lewis about HTML5, CSS3, Microformats, and general web development topics. Emily calls herself a ‘standardista’ and demonstrates that in the conversation, talking about the advantage of using schemas to identify different types of data in your web pages.

  2. Lachlan Hardy — The open web

    The Open Web is an evolving term that encompasses technologies from web standards stalwarts like HTML, to almost-mainstream buzzwords such as OpenID, and on to emerging specifications like PortableContacts, but it’s more than that. It is a philosophy.

    It is the dream of technical building blocks that mesh together to discover and define identity, authorise accessible data, and validate membership of social or professional groupings. It’s one big personal data party and everybody on the web is invited.

    Lachlan Hardy will cover specific technologies and their usecases, showing how they plug together to make a cost-efficient open stack. He examines what the Open Web really means, how it works, and how your business can use it to reach more people, more powerfully.

  3. 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.
