POSH Is The New Chic!

POSH in their world:

  • adjective: elegant and fashionable; “classy clothes”, “a classy dame”, “a posh posh restaurant”; “a swish pastry shop on the Rue du Bac”

POSH in our world:

Here’s a bit more history on the “retake” of POSH for our purposes:

The acronym POSH was coined on 6 April 2007 (http://rbach.priv.at/Microformats-IRC/2007-04-06#T091456) on the microformats IRC channel, by <kwijibo> as a shorthand abbreviation for plain-old-semantic-html. A discussion on among John Allsopp, Tantek Çelik, Jeremy Keith, and Chris Messina at the Microformats Dinner 2007 April 18 following Web 2.0 Expo reraised the idea of POSH and the importance of promoting the broader goal of POSH, which microformats are built from and are a proper subset of.

So now you know the why…and this site will try in our best ways to explain the hows.
