what's hot what's not
WaSP to W3C: Remember your Charter and Mission.
If you build the web, If you read the web, and would like to continue to do so, then this is for you.
The Web Standards Project finds the W3C's proposed patent policy to be dangerous, counterproductive, and contrary to the spirit of W3C's charter and mission—the spirit that built the web.
Blogging the News
E-Media Tidbits: A Group Weblog, is the latest addition to the Poynter Website. Like so many other blogs, this site is tossing out things on a variety of topics in hopes of getting a response. It is early days yet, but this could develop into an interesting site.
the gap between one's creed and deed
There are sites on the web that go from the sublime to the ridiculous. News, Views, Information and Lunatic Ravings. You are in control of what you see, this is not the outer limits, although there are a few places here that may suggest otherwise.
Are you talking about what you believe? If you have any sort of readership for what you think is important, Jay T. Harris may have a few words of wisdom for you.
Speaking of Poynter, it is a great resource for journalists and the rest of us who write periodically.
The web works because HTML is an open system.
The majority of what you see on your screen is written in Hyper Text Markup Language. This language has been carefully created to extend the capabilities of what can be communicated from one computer to another. The source for this is the W3C World Wide Web Consortium.
The W3C holds a special position in our little world. We in concert, without clubs, memberships, secret handshakes, or free mouse pads, have decided to agree on the W3C Recommendations as the stone tablets of our universe of the web. We are here as these 'standards' are non-propriatary, open source, and do not 'belong' to anybody. This means that we have a baseline to begin our exploration and experimentation with what we can get to show up in a browser.
