Microformats: A Pragmatic Path to the Semantic Web. Khare, R. & ̧Celik, T. In
doi  abstract   bibtex   
Microformats are a clever adaptation of semantic XHTML that makes it easier to publish, index, and extract semi-structured information such as tags, calendar entries, contact information, and reviews on the Web. This makes it a pragmatic path towards achieving the vision set forth for the Semantic Web. Even though it sidesteps the existing "technology stack" of RDF, ontologies, and Artificial Intelligence-inspired processing tools, various microformats have emerged that parallel the goals of several well-known Semantic Web projects. This poster compares their prospects to the Semantic Web according to Rogers' Diffusion of Innovation model.
