Hey all,

So you've probably all heard about the launch of the W3C's webplatform.org site, which aims to be the definitive documentation site for web developer and designers. Many of your are probably wondering what on earth this means for the web education community group, and our Wiki.

Well, let me first say I am sorry that I couldn't tell you about this months ago, and for the general radio silence - we had to keep it under wraps for various reasons, many of them too complicated to explain without a couple of beers inside me ;-)

But don't worry. Basically, webplatform.org sits nicely alongside the Web ED CG. webplatform.org is the publishing platform we so badly needed for all that great content we have been producing. Much of the Web Ed CG content has already been put on webplatform.org.

webplatform.org doesn't have translation facilities yet. But this is on the to do list. International language groups watch this space!

And we still want to get this group doing a load of outreach work, to spread the education movement far and wide.

So things have never looked better for web education. and for the Web Edu CG.

Please feel free to send me your questions.
