Yahoo: RDF and the Monkey

From the Yahoo developer network blog,

Besides the existing support for microformats, we have already shared our plans for supporting other standards for embedding metadata into HTML. Today we are announcing the availability of eRDF metadata for SearchMonkey applications, which will soon be followed by support for RDFa. SearchMonkey applications can make direct use of the eRDF data by choosing the com.yahoo.rdf.erdf data source, while RDFa data will appear under com.yahoo.rdf.rdfa. Nothing changes in the way applications are created: as SearchMonkey applications have already been built on a triple-based model, the same applications can work on both microformat, eRDF or RDFa data.

Very cool. Good news for microformats, good news for RDF. Now to find which spam-trap my SearchMonkey account info got lost in…
