Today marks what I hope will be a turning point in the way we deal with standards which will usher in a new wave of innovative enterprise on the Web and a smoother and more sensible process and better architecture. It’s no small dream.
This morning, along with 19 other signatories representative of a broad coalition of individuals across standards bodies, organizations, browser vendors, groups and library creators, I helped to launch The Extensible Web Manifesto. In it, we outline four core principles for change that will create a more robust Web Platform and describe their value. For a more complete introduction, and reasons behind it, see Yehuda Katz’s explanatory post.
We hope you will join us in creating a movement to #extendthewebforward. If you agree, pass it along and help us spread the word.
