Defining Microformats –Attention Information Architect Community

Attention Information Architects!
A few days ago we discussed what a Microformats for the Non-Technical Web Professional or Marketer. I’d like to try to further narrow down the definition:

Microformats: Structured Information from Unstructured Content

I hope the Information Architecture community gloms onto Microformat concept by the end of the year. Not only do we need their help to guide the content criteria, but this is a tool that can really help them structure unstructured content from a ‘bottom-up’ approach –In many ways this is ‘organized folksonomy’.

The internet community as a whole needs to start thinking about these standards as we the web continues to become an unstructured conversation, and mobile access becomes mainstream.  Soon, content producers and content consumers will want content in a structured way.
