I didn’t want to let today go by without a post acknowledging the 2nd birthday of Microformats.org and the related community.
Thought the first year was huge for microformats, the second one has seen additional growth in all areas from format maturity, to huge growth in the community and sites using various markup constructs, to greater support from application vendors.
Here’s a recap of a few recent news items or tidbits incase you missed them.
- John Allsopp’s book on Microformats was published
- NetNewsWire 3.0 is supporting microformats thus avoiding the need for one of my earlier hacks
- Other applications like Firefox are promising support in future releases
- Sites keep adopting various formats — from new sites like Twitter [hCard, XFN & hAtom] to older standbys like LinkedIn with 9million+ hResume based profiles!
