With SxSW just gone, whether you went or not, you might be getting a bit sick of conferences, and other events. Or, you might be itching for more. If you are in the former camp, stop reading now OK, so if you are still with me, you might be interested in some upcoming events with a microformats focus from around the world, as well as some wrapups from recent events

Upcoming Events

Semantic London

"Semantic London is a first shot at organising an event for people interested in all things Semantic Web (both lower-case and Upper Case). If you've got an interest in getting more and better semantic information out on the web, come along" - just a couple of days away on March 20

Web 2.0 Expo

Features two microformats sessions, Microformats for Web Services and Portable Content by Kevin Lawver, and by me, Microformats: Much more than just promise, April 16 and 17 respectively, in downtown San Francisco

In conjunction with the conference there's also Web 2.0 Open, a bar camp like unconference, where am sure sessions of Microformats will be found.

A dinner for those who are interested in microformats is also planned for Wednesday, April 18 - all welcome
