Hello, I started a side project a while ago so I can learn more about 
semantic markup and to get some practice with programming languages I 
didn't know too well.

Basically, I wanted to create a dynamic form so that the fields are 
generated depending on the subject (Hotel, Store, etc) and to be able to 
fill those fields by scraping a site that has semantic markup describing 
the subject. It'd then try to do a 1-1 mapping based on converting from 
RDFa/Microformats/etc to schema.org format. The quality and amount of 
information it can find to automatically fill out the form is based on 
how much semantic markup the target site has implemented.

I'm still toying with it a lot and I'm trying to see what other people 
think and if it'd be useful either for researches or recreational users 
or both. The really interesting/challenging piece is translating from 
various vocabularies and I'm still struggling to find the best way to do it.

The site is markreadygo.com - Anyone can browse but you have to register 
or login through Facebook/Google/Twitter/etc to use the scraping and 
creating a marker service.

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks
