Hello all,

Just came across this cheat sheet for microformats [1] created by Brian Suda
[2]. I know that Manu has spoken of translating some of the common
microformats into RDFa. So I have a few questions:

1. Would the W3C namespace be the best place to house these format
vocabularies? (my answer: I definitely think so, it would lend a lot of
weight to the vocabs. People are drawn to the stability of the W3C)

2. I am *very* keen to start this process and would Manu (and anyone else)
be interested? With the bombshell from Yahoo! there is a lot of buzz going
on in circles that don't know what the *hell* the Semantic Web is and
previously wouldn't have cared. I have received a lot of good feedback from
Web 2.0 people who very much want to learn more and are excited by linked
data and the (lowercase) semantic web.

The creation of a cheat sheet(s) would be a vital piece for people to just
grab/print (for the environments sake I hope not)/use. The sheets could even
be themed: People, Events, etc.
