  35. "Steve Jobs and the actually usable computer" by @timberners_lee http://www.w3.org/QA/2011/10/steve_jobs.html via @w3c

  36. Re: believe in yourself. Steve: "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Steve_Jobs I'd agree with that with one caveat: sharpen and practice your inner skeptic, use it to double-check your heart and intuition, as they can be tricked by dogmas both old and new.

  37. Astrology corp sues, shuts down Olson timezone database. http://j.mp/astrovtz via @selenamarie @petdance. I say: stop giving $ to dogma/myths. Need something to believe in? Start with yourself.

I was of the Apple ][, ][+, and //e generation, eventually embracing Macintosh as well. Those products inspired me to create, to empathize with users, to build tools for independents and independence, and eventually, open web standards. From square brackets to angle brackets.

  43. and yet the (~1 year) delayed-open development of #schemaorg poses challenge to open communities: can we step/keep up?

  44. many differences at #schemaorg workshop, but some common ground to build on: 1. simplicity of mental model is important, 2. rough consensus that we should support multiple syntaxes - co-evolution and sharing of ideas has informed and mutually improved microformats/microdata/RDFa, 3. multiple types on objects are useful/important, 4. everyone wants to innovate as efficiently as they can, so let's openly share and incorporate brainstorm proposals.

  45. says @malarkey: "Adding Microformats to the new http://iso.org design." Yes, *that* ISO. cc: #schemaorg, @microformats

  46. update: sad #schemaorg fragments Person vocab when vCard/hCard/PoCo/OGP/OpenSocial has broad convergence (@kevinmarks)

  47. sad that #schemaorg has now *fragmented* Person/Organization vocabs when vCard/hCard/PoCo etc. have broad convergence.

  48. just volunteered the @microformats wiki for collecting research and brainstorms for #schemaorg and formats in general.

  49. #schemaorg panel asks for positive congratulatory note to end on; @benadida raises "great power" concerns, and others.

  50. possible positive take: treat each #schemaorg 'type' as a proposal for @microformats brainstorming and add to the wiki

  51. To everyone at #schemaorg, you saw @benadida's RDFa talk, now go read microformats 2 #uf2, please give feedback: microformats.org/wiki/microformats-2

  52. #schemaorg syntax session: @benadida acknowledges #RDFa rel=license was based on @microformats rel-license. #history

  53. #schemaorg splitting up into two groups. I'm in the "syntax discussions" room. reminder: #schema IRC on freenode.

  54. Bing developer shows recipe search results with info from hRecipe, claims to not know where they came from. #schemaorg

  57. sitting between @hixie and @kevinmarks and behind @danbri at the #schemaorg workshop. IRC channel: #schema on Freenode

  58. attending invite-only schema(.)org workshop @Microsoft MV today. Warning: many tweets expected. hashtag is #schemaorg.

  59. home. up late reading insightful posts from @adactio @slightlylate and wise tweets from @brendaneich. like old times.

  60. 15y ago yesterday vCard 2.1 http://www.imc.org/pdi/vcard-21.txt, 13y ago vCard 3, 7y ago hCard, 1mo ago vCard 4: microformats.org/wiki/vcard for the history of vCard specifications. A good example of the evolution of a shared semantic vocabulary in the open, over many years and iterations.

  61. going to invite-only #schemaorg workshop Wed., so @KevinMarks and I planned an open @microformats meetup Tue nt: http://plancast.com/p/7lfr come by and bring any/all thoughts/rants/raves about microformats, microdata, RDFa, HTML semantics, schema(.)org, OGP, etc. I want to help drive the development of these technologies in the open as I don't trust a Google+Microsoft duopoly to either get it right or act in the best interests of the open web. Previously: tantek.com/2011/168/b1/practices-good-open-web-standards-development

  62. nice @W3Cconf site updates in response to public/private feedback: w3.org/conf is valid, semantic, and has #hCalendar!

  64. asks @jc "Are we finally calling them web actions?" Yes. #webactions make sense in seconds to users, authors, designers, developers. "web intents", not so much.

Most of all it was great seeing so many wonderful people of Brighton and London. Two weeks went by very quickly and missing you all already.

  72. was worried about my sister, friends, what horrible fork the timeline had just taken. still much repairing to be done.

  79. apparently Facebook added @microformats support to their export: click "Download a copy" on your facebook.com/settings

  80. Nothing fancy, just a few audio tracks picked out for @dConstruct 2011

    Last Friday I had the chance to attend the 2011 dConstruct conference in Brighton. I really enjoyed the talks this year, even some of the more experimental bits. There were some rough parts, and yet I found every speaker inspiring in a different way.

    Did you notice the music? Hopefully not, as like a good interface it should have been a seamless part of your dConstruct experience. However if you did notice it, or you're curious about it, read on.

    I'd arrived a few days before, and the day before the talks, Jeremy asked me to pick out a few pod-safe (e.g. Creative Commons licensed) tracks to play during the breaks, in between talks, and at lunch time. Nothing bounce-bounce beep blip bloop he said. I was searching with Google, then Creative Commons's various directory, search, blog, and community resources to little success (though I did find the excellent Asterisk hold music) when Emil suggested that I just try browsing/searching SoundCloud. Aside from apparently needing Flash to listen to the music, that did the trick.

    Without further ado, here are for your browsing and few-click downloading (no way to link directly to CC MP3s on Soundcloud) enjoyment is the background soundtrack for dConstruct 2011:

    If anyone knows of a FFFFound for uploading of Creative Commons SSSSound, I can upload them and make a podcast (as suggested to Matt Ogle as a simple and useful project/hack for the Institute For the Future of Music). Otherwise go through the above links, do the necessary 3-4 clicks to go to the track, click download, hover to the download link, click, etc., and enjoy some nice background music.
