Microformats

Karen Coombs at Library Web Chic points to a nice Firefox extension, Operator.
Operator leverages microformats that are already available on many web pages to provide new ways to interact with web services.

Operator lets you combine pieces of information on Web sites with applications in ways that are useful. For instance, Flickr + Google Maps, Upcoming.org + Google Calendar, Yahoo! Local + your address book, and many more possibilities and permutations. All of these scenarios are possible due to Microformats, an emerging standard for injecting semantics into HTML.

Have to see if it works with COinS.
