For those of you who attended my XTech talk yesterday (and, indeed, for those of you who didn’t), here are a few jumping off points I mentioned:
- microformats.org is the motherlode, home to the wiki where you can find documentation for microformats.
- microformats-discuss is the mailing list where there’s plenty of chat about existing microformats.
- Technorati Microformats Search is still in beta but it’s a nice example of a microformats search engine.
- Operator is the superb plug-in for Firefox that exposes and exports microformats.
- John Allsopp’s book on microformats is a must-have.
- Cork’d is the wine review site that’s filled with microformats, effectively giving it a read-only API (here’s my profile).
- Brian Suda has plenty of code, a cheat sheet and a PDF book on microformats.
- Engins of Creation by Eric Drexler.
- The Diamond Age: Or, A Young Lady’s Illustrated Primer by Neal Stephenson.
- Harry Kroto
- Buckminsterfullerene, nanobots and grey goo.
