I took a stab at converting the front page of my weblog to use more 
features from html5.  You can see the results here:

   http://intertwingly.net/blog/index.html5

Even after this modest amount of work, I'm pleased with the results.  If 
you view source on the page, you will see why.  The articles, titles, 
content, bookmarks and timestamps are all readily identifiable. 
Furthermore, the markup itself is cleaner than a tangle of <div> elements.

But this is clearly just the start.  At the present time, 
html5.validator.nu conformance checking tool identifies a gross number 
of errors:

I imagine that the errors can be grouped into three categories:

   1) errors for which my page ought to be fixed
   2) errors for which the validator ought to be fixed
   3) errors for which the spec ought to be fixed

I'm posting my early results here in the off chance that it sparks a 
discussion.
