Geo Microformats BOF II: Developing a "directions" Microformat
Date: Tuesday, June 13
Time: 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Location: Paseo Room
Moderated by Tantek Çelik, Technorati
Last year at the inaugural "Where 2.0" conference, the Microformats BOF brought together key folks in the geo and microformats communities and together we were able to brainstorm and develop the "geo" and "adr" microformats.
During the opening keynote at the Mix06 conference this past March, Tim O'Reilly engaged Bill Gates in a discussion about microformats. During that conversation, Bill Gates specifically noted that we need microformats for contacts, events, and directions.
The first of those two have been well defined by hCard and hCalendar microformats. However, a directions microformat has yet to be defined. Research has begun towards the development of a directions microformat.
The goal of this BOF is to once again bring together key interested folks in the geo and microformats communities, discuss the work on the directions microformat to date, and brainstorm on proposals for a directions microformat.
