Here is a bit of a followup to a previous question I asked about what you guys think is necessary in a portfolio website.
I've been working away at making it look decent locally and had a thought....does anybody here use the vCard at all?
It seems pretty easy to programmatically generate....I'm just curious if anybody has any experience with it. Is it useful for employers? Is it a dead technology?
I use Microformats whenever possible. They are certainly not a dead technology, rather they are a very young technology. They form a set of standards that can be useful in various different ways to various people, ways that you may not foresee offhand. It may or may not ever be taken advantage of, but if it is you win and if not you've lost nothing. I would consider them best practice.
