w3.org (specificly, the "Web API Working Group" content which I've just
spent an hour puzzling over) suffers from excessive techno-babble.
Can't the objectives and activity of the "Web API Working Group" be
described in simple clear language?
I'm an aged technologist (almost 60) with 38 years of computer programming
experience.. I've come to realize how isolated we technologists are from the
lay-public and from each other. However, because our technologies are so
important, they deserve the effort (yes, the great effort) to describe them
clearly. Let us be creative and passionate in that effort!

PS0: This inability or unwillingness to communicate also afflicts our
technologist colleagues the scientists, mathematicians, physicians, etc.
PS1: Why do I bother?
