Microformats dot org 1-year anniversary

Monday, June 19th, 2006

Tomorrow, June 21st is the one year anniversary of Microformats dot org. Its really tough to believe that I’ve been working on this for more than a year. And, after a year, things seem to be going stronger than ever. Here’s some random thoughts:

  1. When we started the site, we thought the project would have a limited shelf-life. We really thought we’d spend six to nine months working on new formats, then that’d be it. We’d then go on publishing and building tools. We have many ongoing efforts and there’s no end in sight.
  2. Its taken longer for us to get microformats search going than I expected. There’s been a lot of good things going on at Technorati.
  3. Microformats have gotten more positive reception from members of the UpperCase Semantic Web Crowd than I expected. I’ve also learned a lot more about those technologies and that crowd.

Of course, since its Web 2.0, and Web 2.0 is about the partying, there’ll be a Microformats Dot Org anniversary party tomorrow night at 111 Minna. See upcoming for details.
