Schema.org Workshop Announced

Almost 2 months ago I wrote to tell you about the launch of Schema.org – a project aimed at creating and supporting a common set of schemas for structured data markup. Microsoft recently announced the first Schema.org workshop to be held in Silicon Valley on September 21st, 2011. Bing describes the event as a “working session” where they will interact and accept feedback and discuss options to make it easier for site owners and publishers to incorporate the data markup defined by schema.org into their sites and ultimately the search engines.

Over the next couple of weeks Microsoft will be reaching out to various leaders in the appropriate standards communities, tool vendors and other various industries, and inviting them to participate in the discussions. If you would like to be involved you can send an email to [email protected] or follow the Schema.org blog.
