It turns out I have a long time interest in structured content, dating back to graduate school and projects dealing with a lot of raw data. Describing data requires using metadata, and from there it’s not really a big jump to the semantic web and rich snippets.
A current project involves describing projects using metadata. Sounds self-referential, no? It’s not, really, because context matters.
One such metadata specification is Description of a Project, aka DOAP. While I’m not a big fan of the acronym, the concept is sound.
Unfortunately, the main website has been badly compromised. Really badly. I have screenshots.
