W3C Announces First Draft of Standard for Online Privacy

   14 November 2011 | Archive


   To address rising concerns about privacy on the Web, W3C
   publishes today two first drafts for standards that allow users
   to express preferences about online tracking:

     * Tracking Preference Expression (DNT), which defines
       mechanisms for users to express cross-site tracking
       preferences and for sites to indicate whether they honor
       these preferences.
     * Tracking Compliance and Scope Specification, which defines
       the meaning of a "Do Not Track" preference and sets out
       practices for websites to comply with this preference.

   These documents are the early work of a broad set of
   stakeholders in the W3C Tracking Protection Working Group,
   including browser vendors, content providers, advertisers,
   search engines, and experts in policy, privacy, and consumer
   protection. W3C invites review of these early drafts, expected
   to become standards by mid-2012. Read the full press release
   and testimonials and learn more about Privacy.

Workshop Report: Third Workshop on Web and TV

   08 November 2011 | Archive


   W3C today published the final report of the Third W3C Web and
   TV Workshop, hosted by Comcast Cable 19-20 September in
   Hollywood, California. Nearly 150 representatives from key
   stakeholders participated, including major browser vendors,
   content providers, video service providers, TV broadcasters,
   cable operators, and CE manufacturers. Participants in the
   Workshop focused on addressing gaps between the experiences,
   perspectives, and expectations of the entertainment industry
   and the Web community. In addition, the Web and TV Interest
   Group discussed the issues from the workshop during its first
   F2F meeting on September 21-22, and decided on next steps for
   each issue, e.g., submit functional gaps to Working Groups or
   create new Interest Group Task Forces. The conclusion is
   included in the group's September Report.


W3C Co-organizes Meeting on Domain Names and Persistence at IDCC11

   08 November 2011 | Archive


   On 8 December 2011 at the International Digital Curation
   Conference (IDCC), W3C is co-organizing with the Digital
   Curation Centre a workshop on Domain Names and Persistence, in
   Bristol, UK. The vulnerability of any digital material to
   unexpected or unintended changes in Internet domain name
   assignment, and hence to the outcome of domain name resolution,
   is widely recognised. The fact that domain names are not
   permanently assigned is regularly cited as one of the main
   reasons why http: URIs cannot be regarded as persistent
   identifiers over the long term. This workshop is intended to
   bring together interested parties to explore the dimensions of
   the problem and possible directions in which to look for
   solutions. Learn about related work by the W3C Technical
   Architecture Group (TAG).

       Linked Enterprise Data Patterns: Data-driven Applications
       on the Web
       Cambridge, MA, USA
       Hosted by W3C/MIT
       Linked Data technology also offers a huge potential for
       enterprise applications, e.g., for the integration and the
       management of data within and across enterprises. The
       distributed nature of Linked Data enables loose-coupling
       for data sharing within and between organizations. With
       Linked Data, enterprises have a unique opportunity to
       cooperate in their use of shared data without the costs of
       extensive coordination. Sharing a common data model (RDF)
       allows us to establish design patterns for providing
       dereferencable resource identifiers, migrating and cloning
       data as business needs and data authorities evolve. These
       will address issues such as data distribution, query
       federation, access control, encryption and signature, legal
       problems around the access of datasets and business models
       in using open or closed linked data. Please join the W3C
       Linked Data community at this workshop to air requirements,
       share solutions and develop a healthy and scalable Linked
       Enterprise Data infrastructure.
