MicroFormats In The Cloud
Data makes the Web. Many users publish their contacts and preferences on web pages and social networks. MicroFormats offer a way to make this information machine-readable. This way, restaurants found via local.yahoo.com can be published directly on the personal homepage – if the food was good. Articles bought via Amazon or in real life can be passed on to friends as easily and conveniently as the music you like to listen to. “MicroFormats in the Cloud” allows you to test this new approach. All data found can be stored and published on Windows Azure; friends and acquaintances can find them there and transfer them with a simple mouseclick.
