I updated my work email signature and felt a little saucy and embedded my hCard information right into the HTML. (Yes, the Unix users out there who only read plain-text emails won’t see it).
hCard is a microformat, a way to encode certain pieces of human-readable information with machine-readable meta-data to allow computers and other devices to recognize (and thereby smartly use) otherwise plain, lifeless text.
- I started with the hCard Creator, and then hacked the HTML from there.
- I also uploaded my hCard to my website, and embedded it in the sidebar of my blog (so every page of my side is hCard visible)
- Then I linked to the following technorati page, concatenating my URI (bold, below) to the end of theirs (http://feeds.technorati.com/contacts/http://www.utahtechjobs.com) that uses (I assume) XSL wizardry and black magic to turn an hCard embedded into a web-page into a downloadable vCard for import into your favorite address book or vCard-aware app.
- Anyway, it may take some time to become widespread, but my info is out there, and available. Click Add Me To Your Address Book to try the vCard!
