Ray Ozzie gave a neat demo at ETech. His team has taken Microformats and integrated them into applications via a clipboard enhancement. When you select web information that's marked up as a microformat, the clipboard understands this and preserves the structure so that, if you take an event from a page and then paste it into Outlook, instead of a block of text, you get a real event in your calendar.

Pretty neat, and it shows how seriously companies are taking Microformats as a way to connect the web to applications.
