At his blog, Tantek Çelik writes about the ninth birthday of the microformats effort, which seeks to express semantic information in web pages through the use of attribute names within HTML elements, in contrast to comparatively "heavyweight" schemes like RDFa and Microdata. Çelik notes that the community-driven process of microformats' development seems to have enabled its survival. "Looking back nine years ago, none of the other alternatives promoted in the 2000s (even by big companies like Google and Yahoo) survive to this day in any meaningful way," he says. "Large companies tend to promote more complex solutions, perhaps because they can afford the staff, time, and other resources to develop and support complex solutions. Such approaches fundamentally lack empathy for independent developers and designers, who don't have time to keep up with all the complexity." In addition to his analysis about the past nine years (including an exploration of the down side of email-based discussions), Çelik takes the occasion to announce that microformats2 has now been upgraded to the status of ready-to-use recommendation, and points site maintainers to tools to support the transition.
