    Posted on . Estimated read time: under a minute (210 words)

    One of the motivators for going "back to basics" on my blog was to focus on the markup semantics and laying a solid foundation. Given one of the main powers of the Open Web is the ability to link and share content, I wanted to get my metadata in a workable state.
