Atom and Microformats Intro

My most recent article at IBM developerWorks is up (part of David Mertz's "XML Matters" column), discussing the intersection of Atom Syndication Format, Atom Publishing Protocol, and Microformats:

Up And Atom

Actually, it's been up for at least a week, but I was out of town at JavaOne (and too tired to post), then off the grid completely taking my son's school to camp. I'm still getting caught up, but nearly recovered.

I think I've figured out why my new blog is not being picked up by Planet Python too: the planet software has only recently begun to support Atom 1.0, and that version hasn't been officially released yet. There should be a 1.0 release of the planet code soon, and hopefully Planet Python will upgrade then and all will be well with the world.

I guess that's one downside to developing my own blogging tools to support open standards: I may not have to implement deprecated formats or protocols, but if others are still stuck with legacy systems it can still hurt.
