Hi all,

So I just gave my talk at SemTech on Building Interoperable Metadata  
which features RDF/A. I've posted the PDF of the slides on my web  
page [1]. I'll try to make this into a podcast (I attempted to record  
the audio), especially since my talk style is to have only graphics  
up on the slide, not much text, so the slides on their own may be  
confusing.

On the plane over, I decided we needed an RDF/A demo ASAP. I was also  
inspired by our chat on Monday. So I built a Javascript bookmarklet  
that traverses the DOM, picks up RDF/A attributes, then marks the RDF/ 
A HTML with red blocks and uses overlib [2] to create popups  
accordingly. The result is fairly representative of the good  
properties of RDF/A, in particular the principles defined in the slides.

Here's how you go about running this bookmarklet. Note that this may  
stop working at any time, and I should probably move it to W3C space  
soon.

1) go to http://ben.adida.net/rdfa/
2) drag the RDF/A link to your bookmarks bar
3) go to a page that contains RDF/A (or something close enough to it  
that it will work)
	- http://ben.adida.net/
	- http://www.pir.uniprot.org/ (only the license and disclaimer link  
at the bottom).
4) invoke the RDF/A bookmarklet (click on it).
5) Hover over the red blocks.

This currently does NOT support:
- namespaces (basically they're ignored)
- LINK and META, since the browsers remove these from the DOM tree.

-Ben
