August 24, 2007Dare: Microformats are not an API.
I’m on record as a microformat fan — they’re an awesome low impact largely social hack — appropriate technology for a world without APIs. That said I’ve been hesitant to add them to Flickr for the reason that APIs are better: better for us, better for you and I would hate to confuse people about this. That said Operator is the compelling counter argument, and why I’ve been sprinkling microformats and RDFa around the site lately.3. (Aside, Uncategorized flickr, microformats, semweb)
