Burningbird ? I am an Evil Woman

Shelley reviews  Structured blogging as Web 2.0 colonialism which is about the Structured Blogging initiative ... see microformats.
source: conclusion of the evil post
I lose my smile, my shoulders slump, my butt droops, and my cat cries. Saddened by your loss of comprehension at my Plan, I can only shake my head and wonder how a woman can continue to do evil when those around her just don't get it.
...err, if a woman does evil in the forest and nobody gets it, is it good ?

But seriously, to state the obvious, Yardley should realize that making money is not evil ... making money on people  entering metadata is not evil, especially if it uses that data to make valuable connections.  Rather, if we must find evil, then it is Yardley's jealousy that is evil.  

I like microformats as opposed to RDF.  Their simplicity gives them a better chance to succeed.  This evil metadata of yours will be implemented in small baby steps that work ... not huge  sweeping steps like RDF.  People are funny, they only do what immediately benefits them.  I'm hoping that my own intentional tags is one of those baby steps.  Many happinings can stand on that simple tagging syntax.

Microformats, SB, RDF...they're all tools of my evilness!

Signed, Evil woman.

Seth says
I know i bought your book

... so his evil tool is microformats, yours is RDF, it makes little difference to his stupid jealousy.  I guess it's no secret that  I am not a fan (any more) of RDF, not because it is evil or even complex, but just because it does not seem to be happening.
