Eric Meyer and
Tantek Çelik are running a developer-day session on
microformats at this year’s WWW 2005 conference. This is an effort to add semantic meaning to objects (such as images or hyperlinks, for example) … and includes discussion about social networks (xFN – xhtml Friends Network). Visit Rubhub and XHTML Friends (for xFN application) and Upcoming.org (application of
hCalendar for events). Rohit Khare spoke on
hReview (standard set of tags for reviews — books, movies, etc). An interesting and practical set of applications for the
semantic web. Rohit also pointed us to JotSpot — the wiki that works like you expect (mark-up-wise).
