microformats 2.0 - the next evolutionary step for web data*
microformats are published on millions of sites, providing a simple API for the data on those pages with no additional URLs, file formats, callbacks etc. Similar approaches have subsequently emerged and grown as well, like RDFa and microdata. This talk discusses lessons learned in all HTML data in general, and how those lessons have been incorporated into microformats 2.0, the latest in the evolution of web data.
In 2005, microformats brought real-world semantics to the web for the rest of us, now supported by millions of sites, numerous tools and search engines. Additional similar approaches subsequently emerged like RDFa and microdata.
This talk discusses lessons learned in the use of such semantic HTML data markup technologies, and how those lessons have been incorporated into the latest evolutionary iteration for marking up data in HTML: microformats 2.0.

A web action is the user experience, code, and service for taking a specific discrete action, across the web, from one site to another site or application. You’ve all seen the buttons: Share, Read later, Follow, Like, Favorite, etc.
More than any one social site or service, web actions are the emergence of a whole new hypermedia building block.
This talk will give an overview of the anatomy of a web action, discuss web action user flow, and highlight best practices for both publishers and service providers.
