james Farmer raises some good questions about structured blogging (aka microformats): "I'm not sure if it's that simple and something bugs me about form filling and the impact that might have on content & creativity. Naturally this is going to help all of you SEO [Search Engine Optimization] folks no end but does it work for your everyday blogger? I'm tempted to say 'no'." What he says next is more interesting: "where we ought to be heading... towards 'styled blogging' where we can semantically create our documents on the fly..." In other words, just write what you would write, and have your system recognize, say, that it's a movie review, and format the output accordingly. Like this, maybe.
