Last night I had the opportunity to talk about Microformats at the November RefreshAugusta meeting. To support the slides, I created a microsite with links to all of the sites mentioned in the slides. Hopefully you’ll find this useful. I’m also making the slides available for you to reuse/repurpose/remix under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License:


So, a couple of weeks ago Phil and I were joking around about bacon. (It’s a pretty common occurrence these days.) We came up with the idea of  raising money for a .bacon TLD (e.g. iaccidentallythewhole.bacon). Out of nowhere he suggests: twitterbacon.com. I thought it was brilliant. I got the domain. I started working on a site by myself, but couldn’t quite get it the way I wanted (or find the time to devote to doing it). So, I asked Emily Lewis and Jonathan Delaigle for their help. I came up with a design. Emily got the design implemented. Jonathan made it work.

Without further adieu: bacontwits.com

At some point in the near future, it’s our goal to package the site up into something others can take and build their own mashups from. Once we’re ready to release, I’ll make an announcement here, on BaconTwits and on Twitter.



Because of the experimental state of my site, you’re encouraged to view it using the latest version of Safari, Firefox or Opera. Once I’ve decided on a design direction, I’ll work on backwards compatibility. Thanks for your understanding.
