  • MyBlogLog & Microformats

    Sometimes it’s the simple things. Last week we switched on another piece of the microformats suite and all MyBlogLog profiles now support vCard and hCard formats. For more details, see the MyBlogLog blog. For more on Microformats in general and why they’re cool, see Denise Olson’s excellent primer, An Introduction to Microformats.

  • MyBlogLog and Web 2.0 Expo

    Todd and I have been busy hanging out over at this week’s Web 2.0 Expo (save one short visit to the nearby Blue Bottle Coffee, thanks Sam!) but the team has been back at MyBlogLog HQ cranking out some cool stuff regardless. HCard & VCard support – very cool to see these come to light. […]

  • Our Local Pocket Cinema

    Nice write-up in the San Francisco Chronicle of our local, 49-seat movie theater in Alameda. It’s a one-man operation with the same guy who takes your tickets and serving you popcorn also running the projector. With old couches and laz-y-boy chairs to sit on, it’s more reminiscent of Cinema Paradiso than your standard Lowes megaplex. […]
