15 years ago @KevinMarks & I introduced #microformats @oreillymedia ETech 2004 “real world semantics” session, before #RDFa #microdata etc., with <15k #HTMLFirst + inline #CSS+#JS: tantek.com/presentations/2004etech/realworldsemanticspres.html (faster than JS-only slides)

Previously: tantek.com/t4UY2 (https://twitter.com/t/status/433494367601717248)

Since then:
* drop the (X), just HTML
* meta tags still web alchemy, even more bloated DRY rot
* h-entry superceded hAtom/hentry/rel="bookmark" - microformats.org/wiki/h-entry
* recommendations: hReview still more reliable than anything from Google (https://aaronparecki.com/2016/12/17/8/owning-my-reviews). Use h-review today microformats.org/wiki/h-review
* syndication: h-feed publishing/consuming growing rapidly. microformats.org/wiki/h-feed
* music playlists still unsolved for any cross-site/service use-cases
