Starting up...

Hi there,

I thought maybe a brief welcome email would be in order. My name is Anne,  
I have worked for Opera for over five years on web stuff. Mostly HTML5 at  
first, nowadays the scripted bits of CSS, Media Queries, XMLHttpRequest, a  
protocol for cross-origin requests (mostly for use with XMLHttpRequest,  
but also elsewhere), and recently a revision of DOM Core. Relatively  
boring stuff -- though not to me -- so I guess someone thought it would be  
fun to nominate me as Chair for the WG standardizing these little popover  
notifications. :-)

I have not done this Chair thing before so if you find anything --  
http://www.w3.org/Guide/ -- that conflicts with what I do here please  
point it out. If possible I would love to do this thing as informally as  
possible. We will use the WG as legal framework and just do our thing on  
the mailing list. If you want to have a chat I am available on IRC,  
#webapps on irc.w3.org:6665 (not the default port), and various other  
channels. Email is fine too, of course. #webapps is also our WG channel  
(shared with the WebApps WG).

Arthur Barstow -- Chair of the WebApps WG -- told me we could have a short  
slot at TPAC -- http://www.w3.org/2010/11/TPAC/ -- if we want to get  
together there. Might be a nice way to say hello in person.

Maybe a link to our homepage is also in order:  
http://www.w3.org/2010/web-notifications/ It contains further pointers to  
our charter, archives of this list, and most importantly the draft.

Might be nice if people replied to this email introducing themselves as  
well, but if you feel shy today not to worry. Not going to hold it against  
you. ;-)

I think this is about it, lets make it happen!
