Technorati Day 1

Today was day 1 for me at Technorati and unlike most first days on a job, I actually got a good deal of work done.

When I first announced that I’d be working at Technorati for the summer, several people said something to the effect of ‘I hope you get to do something cool with microformats.’ Well, I have. :-)

In an effort to facilitate the adoption of hCalendar, I’ve created a javascript based tool for creating hCalendar entries. Please let me know if you have any problems with it or have any other suggestions for improvement.

Don’t expect me to check in for every day I’m at Technorati- maybe just when something cool happens.

    Great to see new tools for hCal, and microformats in general, appearing! Just an FYI, you will need to try and escape things like & (&) in the final code – it is no big deal, but something to consider. Always remember the quote, “you make it idiot proof, and i’ll show you a better idiot”.
