ground-up semantics / grassroots / evolutionary.
semantics aded to web in adhoc way, decentralized.
lowercase semantic web
define a microformat (technocrati site)
that solves a specific problem
use or leverage existing xhtml mark-up structures to express semantics
use or leverage exisiting standards that are not immediatlrey expressable in xhtml
semantics are human-understandable. made by us, for us.
( reference emergence )
semantic web >> akin to evolution or intelligent design
WHO CAN DO THIS?
someone with a problem they wish to solve.
profile (metadata) at a stable URI (uniform resource identifier) will help a lot.

solve an immediate problem, fil need that needs to be addressed.
keep solution as simple as possible.
open source it all.
your efforts, microformat might lead to other solutions.
XMN me value to bring pieces together, weblog, friendster, tribe, etc.
xfn and votelinks. what friends like.
pieces are there. make search engine for it maybe.
xfn and hCalendar. friends doing in next few weeks.
(not RFC, changing, informal)
RFC - A document that was created to define accepted or proposed Internet standards or standards of practice. The acceptance of a document as an RFC is governed by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force). RFCs begin life as Internet-Drafts, which may be written by anyone. The IETF decides which Internet-Drafts become RFCs. RFCs are most often created by groups of interested individuals hoping to create a standard for interoperability over the Internet; however, they also describe such suggested practices, such as how to set up a mailserver to avoid being used to transmit SPAM mail.
cross hCal with a music app > when bandsplaying, genre. Can subscribe to schedules.
((lots of folks asking questions))
(ES is free tagging with more formality)
engines starting to recognize certain values
API calls to link relation values should be available.
Scripts to convert from microformats to RFC formats
Collections of links to microformated pages.
Other ways to do linkage and semantics.
Microformats add semantic info and allow quick, evolutionary enrichment of the Web.
limits to ES > need to find problems to solve, make intelligent solutions that are simple and easy to educate and spread.
