Oomph: A Microformats Toolkit

The Oomph A Microformats Toolkit session is taking place right now at PDC.

With the momentum of Microformats burgeoning, we decided to build Oomph: A Microformat Toolkit. Our main goal with Oomph is to make Microformats more accessible for developers and designers.

Microformats are about enhancing the web, representing data in HTML and moving that data around. Oomph: A Microformats Toolkit is for web developers, designers and users, making it easier to create, consume, and style Microformats. In short, Oomph makes consuming and producing content for the web just a little easier, more efficient, more fun.

Thomas Lewis and Karsten Januszewski are behind this initiative and this comes hot on the tail of our recent announcements to make jQuery part of the official Visual Studio dev platform.

I also took Oomph for a test drive and used the Live Writer plugin to add my hCard below.
