Author and publication date location on articles?

Should the author and publication date be before or after the article?

I was looking at clearing out the header space of my articles, and having nothing but the title and then the article.

The categories, tags, author and publication date would be after the article.

Has anyone played around with this idea? Or does anyone know of someone playing around with the author and date location?

The reason why I thought about moving the author and date, when I do a google search for site:sitename my name appears in the results. Rather than my name, which is at the top of the article, shouldn't the content appear first?

It does not matter where you show the date or categories. Google will get the date from the article snippets.
