Internet Society Reconfirms Support for W3C Open Web Platform with
Donation

   17 November 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8957

   In its continuing efforts to foster an open Internet ecosystem,
   the Internet Society today announced a 1M USD donation to the
   World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). This donation, the second
   installment of the Internet Society's 2009 pledge of 2.5M USD
   over three years, will support the evolution of W3C as an
   organization that creates open Web standards. "The W3C is a key
   member of the ecosystem of organizations that supports the
   continued development, operation, and use of the open, global
   Internet," said Raúl Echeberría, Chair of the Internet Society
   Board of Trustees. ISOC and W3C have closely aligned views and
   strongly support the ongoing evolution of open Internet as an
   invaluable platform for innovation. Read more in the press
   release and FAQ about ISOC and W3C.

HTML5 Web Messaging Draft Published

   19 November 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8960

   The Web Applications Working Group has published the First
   Public Working Draft of "HTML5 Web Messaging." This
   specification defines two mechanisms for communicating between
   browsing contexts in HTML documents. Cross document messaging
   allows documents to communicate with each other regardless of
   their source domain, in a way designed to not enable cross-site
   scripting attacks. Channel messaging allows independent pieces
   of code (e.g. running in different browsing contexts) to
   communicate directly. Learn more about the Rich Web Client
   Activity.

Timed Text Markup Language (TTML) 1.0 is a W3C Recommendation

   18 November 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8959

   The Timed Text Working Group has published a W3C Recommendation
   of "Timed Text Markup Language (TTML) 1.0." TTML 1.0 provides
   a standardized representation of a particular subset of textual
   information with which stylistic, layout, and timing semantics
   are associated by an author or an authoring system for the
   purpose of interchange and potential presentation. Learn more
   about the Video in the Web Activity.

First Draft of A Direct Mapping of Relational Data to RDF Published

   18 November 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8958

   The RDB2RDF Working Group has published the First Public
   Working Draft of "A Direct Mapping of Relational Data to RDF."
   The need to share data with collaborators motivates custodians
   and users of relational databases (RDB) to expose relational
   data on the Web of Data. This document defines a direct mapping
   from relational data to RDF. This definition provides extension
   points for refinements within and outside of this document.
   Learn more about the Semantic Web Activity.

Last Call: WOFF File Format 1.0

   16 November 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8956

   The WebFonts Working Group has published a Last Call Working
   Draft of "WOFF File Format 1.0." This document specifies a
   simple compressed file format for fonts, designed primarily for
   use on the Web and known as WOFF (Web Open Font Format). WOFF
   provides lightweight, easy-to-implement compression of font
   data, suitable for use with CSS style sheets. WOFF is a
   container format or "wrapper" for font data in already-existing
   formats rather than an actual font format in its own right.
   Comments are welcome through 14 December. Learn more about the
   Fonts Activity.

Workshops

     * 2010-12-08 ( 8 DEC) – 2010-12-09 ( 9 DEC)
       How can Technology help to improve Privacy on the Internet?
       http://www.iab.org/about/workshops/privacy/
       Cambridge, MA, USA
       Jointly organized by the Internet Architecture Board (IAB),
       Internet Society (ISOC), MIT, and W3C
       Who we are (e.g. our thoughts, dreams, feelings, DNA
       sequence), what we own (such as financial property), what
       we have experienced and how we behave
       (audio/visual/olfactory transcripts), and how we can be
       reached (location, endpoint identifiers) are among the most
       personal pieces of information about us. More and more of
       this information is being digitized and made available
       electronically. The question for us therefore is: How can
       we ensure that architectures and technologies for the
       Internet, including the World Wide Web, are developed in a
       way that respects users’ privacy?
