Microformats 1:01—Exporting microformats via bluetooth
The video is one minute and one second long. It’s a quick demo of John McKerrell’s bluetooth version of the Tails plugin.
- Watch the video on YouTube.
- Watch it on Viddler.
- Here it is on Vimeo.
- Download the video from the Internet Archive.
Here’s a transcript of the 1:01 minutes of video:
This is my website. This is my mobile phone. My website has microformats. This is a version of the Tails plugin for Firefox. It exposes all the microformats I have on my website. I can convert and export those microformats as vcard, iCal, whatever I want. With this version of the plugin I can also export to bluetooth. So let’s take an event for example. I click on bluetooth. My computer asks me which device to export to. I have previously paired up my phone. So now I’m going to send the event to that device. And there we go. I have now exported from the World Wide Web onto my mobile phone. Easy!

XTech 2007, day three
The last day of Xtech rolled around and… whaddya mean “what happened to day two?” They can’t have a conference in Paris and not expect me to take at least one day off to explore the city.
So I skipped the second day of XTech and I’m sure I missed some good presentations but I spent a lovely day with Jessica exploring the streets and brasseries of Paris.
Ah, Paris! (uttering this phrase must always be accompanied by the gesture of flinging one arm into the air with abandon)
The conference closed today with a keynote from Matt Webb. It was great: thought-provoking and funny. It really drove home the big take-away message from XTech for me this year which is that hacking on hardware now is as easy as software.
I can has Arduino?
