    Meet the HTML Working Group chairs in Austin at SxSWi

I enjoyed living in Austin and I like to visit when I can. My last trip 
was more for MIT research stuff 
<http://dig.csail.mit.edu/breadcrumbs/node/159>; this time it's W3C 
business.

I took SxSWi 2007 off my travel schedule 
<http://www.w3.org/People/Connolly/#travl> when the TAG scheduled a 
meeting at MIT the week before, but I put it back on when I saw this panel:

    * Browser Wars Retrospective: Past, Present and Future Battlefields
      <http://2007.sxsw.com/interactive/programming/panels/?action=show&id=IAP060128>
      Tuesday, March 13th
      10:00 am - 11:00 am
      Arun Ranganathan AOL
      Brendan Eich CTO, Mozilla
      Charles McCathieNevile CSO, Opera Software
      Chris Wilson IE Platform Architect, Microsoft

The reinventing HTML saga 
<http://www.w3.org/QA/2006/12/reinventing_html_update.html> culminated 
in a big announcement this week: W3C Launches New HTML Working Group 
<http://www.w3.org/News/2007#item43>. Chris Wilson and I are the 
co-chairs. Karl Dubost and I are working on the HTML WG page 
<http://www.w3.org/html/wg/> this week.

I fly into Austin Monday, just in time to see the Growth and Evolution 
of Microformats 
<http://microformats.org/wiki/events/2006-03-13-the-growth-and-evolution-of-microformats> 
panel; then I fly home Tuesday. The panel schedule 
<http://2007.sxsw.com/interactive/programming/panels/> has so much cool 
stuff from content developers that I would have loved to go for the 
whole thing... not to mention the music festival.

If you can catch me while I'm there, I'll have some Mobile Web Best 
Practices <http://www.w3.org/TR/mobile-bp/> flip cards to hand out.

Shawn Henry is presenting Accessiblity: A Report From the Trenches this 
Sunday. See W3C Talks <http://www.w3.org/Talks/> for some more details.

I have lots of fond memories of Austin 
<http://www.flickr.com/photos/dckc/tags/austin/>; maybe we can make a 
few more next week?
