Microformats: Toward a Semantic Web
By Sean Michael Kerner

Found on Twitter Microformat’s Twitter Account.

Meanwhile, I have enabled ‘Operator’ a Firefox Plugin created by Mike Kaply, and now, just the last few minutes I am surfing the web with it enabled, wow ! Kinda like the scene from John Carpenter’s 1988 movie They Live ! , Roddy Piper, putting the sunglasses on and seeing a new world, only this one is positive.

Really hooked now !
