      Completely unrelated.

      JSON is a data encoding standard, while Microformats are an attempt
      to formalize certain common types of meaningful information (event
      listings, contact information, "tags", etc.) into HTML readable by
      people and machines.

        microformats is layered on top of XML. JSON could replace the XML
        layer. JSON is used to represent values (string, numbers, booleans,
        null) in sequences (aka arrays) and collections of name/value pairs
        (aka objects).

          How is it compared to ASN.1?

          What's "JSON" stand for?

              It's quite a long way from ASN.1. ASN.1 is a data definition language
              (a schema language if you like).

              JSON is a data format.


              ASN.1 is like XML-Schema and JSON is like XML.

              Top search on google tells you:

              Introducing JSON
              JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight data-interchange
              format. ... These properties make JSON an ideal data-interchange
              language. ...
