A great article on “Cards”. I have believed for a while now that they are a next step in the evolution of web architecture, but there is one huge caveat and that is that Google Search (and the others) have not yet found a way to deal with them gracefully. When the search engines can firstly agree on a standard and secondly implement search for “cards” I believe the web will inevitably move this way. As a pattern it makes huge sense and with all the easy AJAX functionality now available implementing cards is quite easy.
