IMO very relevant to conversations around both: JSON-LD and schema.org
especially when it comes to skills, which we started discussing with
Lloyd in context of Vocabulary TF

Google just announced that it's taking the next step toward deeper
JSON-LD integration across all their search products.

"Google is in the process of adding JSON-LD support to more
markup-powered features. So far, JSON-LD is supported for all Knowledge
Graph features, sitelink search boxes, and Event Rich Snippets; Google
recommends the use of JSON-LD for those features."

"Also, Google can read JSON-LD data even when it is dynamically injected
into the page's contents, such as by Javascript code or embedded 'widgets'."


So, I think most of you know where I'm headed with this.

The sooner we get the Credentials/OBI vocabulary integrated into
schema.org the better. There's an entire industry (talent scouting /
recruiting) that would love to be able to scan your resume in a
machine-readable / verifiable way. The hard work is done - Google's
Schema.org is now reading JSON-LD from all web pages. The easier part is
going to be pushing the vocabulary into schema.org. It's not guaranteed
to succeed, but if it does, we'll have a badges/credentials vocabulary
that Google/Yandex/Yahoo/and Microsoft understands.
