Hi,

A couple of weeks ago, Nova Spivack called on TechCrunch for W3C to
standardize "Cards":
http://techcrunch.com/2014/11/08/its-time-for-an-open-standard-for-cards/

"Cards are modular, bite-sized content containers designed for easy
consumption and interaction on small screens"

"Standardized cards will function like a cross between a MIME
attachment, a page of HTML and JavaScript and applet. They will be
portable, interactive, programmatic content experiences. They will work
across apps, which will open a new era of cross-app interoperability,
enabling powerful new forms of sharing and productivity."

Does that suggestion resonate with people on this list? If a standard is
indeed needed, can anyone see what kind of standard it would be? (is it
new markup? new css properties? something else?)
