Talking ‘bout microformats

Last night’s Web Standards Group meetup in London went well. I cut it a bit close and arrived just a few minutes before show time. I wasn’t trying to imitate Tantek, it was just that the train from Brighton was experiencing problems (surprise, surprise).

Norm gave the uppercase Semantic Web a good drubbing, I bored everyone with the minutiae of markup, and Drew blew my mind with a visionary look at using microformats as an API for your website.

After that, we convened to the pub where many excellent conversations were to be had. I had a great chat with some of the Multimap gang, and I got to meet Alex Robinson, yes that Alex Robinson. As usual, I had to run away to catch a train back to Brighton. Also as usual, it took me hours to get home.

I’ve made a PDF of my slides but, as is always the case, they don’t make too much sense without the context of the presentation. Hopefully, there will be a podcast of the evening’s talk released. Head over to Stuart’s WSG page where you can subscribe to the feed.
