   joint effort by vendors, providers, manufacturers and mobile
   operators to make Web access from a mobile device as simple, easy,
   and convenient as Web access from a desktop device. Dominique first
   joined W3C as Webmaster, did early work on GRDDL, contributed to QA
   at W3C, served as Team Contact for the Mobile Web Best Practices
   Working Group, serves as co-Chair of the MWI Test Suites Working
   Group, and works on mobileOK. W3C wishes to thank Philipp Hoschka
   who previously led the Activity and continues his roles as W3C
   Deputy Director for Europe and Ubiquitous Web Domain Leader. Read
