Microformats at MIX 06: 5.45pm today in the Venetian food court

There are a few too many keynotes for MIX to feel like a grassroots developer camp; this is a conference that hasn't quite settled down to what it's going to be. There's plenty of interest. After Joe Belfiore's demo of Vista Media Centre, ebay in Outlook, MSN Money in Excel and the UMPC, I skipped between two sessions: one on search, marketing, advertising and branding, the next a technical view on writing bots and activities for MSN Messenger (natural language is back). And there are some spontaneous sessions springing up in the few breaks (from the 9am keynote to the party that went on till past 9pm, we were talking and taking notes for a good eight hours yesterday). I'm hoping to catch up with some microformats people at the Birds of a Feather session in the food court this evening.
