IndieWebCamp Berlin 2018
Session: Microformats for Contracts
When: 2018-11-03 16:55



  • There are microformats for offers, and products, etc. But why not for contracts.
  • What is a contract? Sometimes it is just a transaction of something, e.g. ownership.
  • Tracking obligations / special dates.
  • Could commerce systems send information to people about their transactions?
  • Standardized format
    • Have a common format/interface: transaction types, products/services, termination period...

There is an "official" process for establishing a new microformat (includes a research phase) microformats.org/wiki/process
