W3C Updates Recommendation Track Process

   5 August 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4004

   W3C enacted today the 1 August 2014 W3C Process Document. This
   revision updates the chapter that defines the Recommendation
   Track, the steps and requirements followed by W3C Working
   Groups to standardize Web technology. The W3C technical report
   development process is designed to support multiple
   specification development methodologies: maximize consensus
   about the content of stable technical reports; ensure high
   technical and editorial quality; promote consistency among
   specifications; facilitate royalty-free, interoperable
   implementations of Web Standards; and earn endorsement by W3C
   and the broader community. The primary change to the
   Recommendation Track is to merge “Last Call” and “Candidate
   Recommendation.” A Process Transition FAQ lists other changes
   to the Recommendation Track, explains the two-year transition
   plan for adoption by groups, describes the relation to the W3C
   Patent Policy, and more.

   This document was developed between the W3C Advisory Board and
   the public Revising W3C Process Community Group.

Workshop Report: W3C Workshop on the Web of Things

   8 August 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4014

   W3C published today the final report of the W3C Workshop on the
   Web of Things that was held on 25-26 June 2014, in Berlin
   (Germany).

   http://www.w3.org/2014/02/wot/report
   http://www.w3.org/2014/02/wot/

   The workshop examined the opportunities for open Web standards
   for service platforms in the network edge and the cloud, along
   with the challenges for security, privacy and the integration
   with the Web of data.

   The workshop gave a strong message of support for W3C to
   initiate work on standardization for the Web of Things. The
   foundations include RESTful HTTP and pub-sub protocols, but the
   detailed requirements vary across the use cases. Building upon
   these foundations, the workshop identified the need for
   standards for Web APIs that abstract away from the protocols,
   including the wide range of IoT technologies used at the
   network edge to connect to sensors and actuators. Through
   standardization, we can encourage re-use of APIs and data
   models.

   The W3C staff will drive the process of chartering an Interest
   Group through reaching out to a wide range of interested
   stakeholders. Initial ideas for the scope are included in the
   workshop report.

Upcoming coordinated Workshop: Encouraging open data usage by
commercial developers

   5 August 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/3993

   W3C and its European host, ERCIM, announce the report from the
   first workshop in the Share-PSI 2.0 series. Share-PSI 2.0 is
   the European network for the exchange of experience and ideas
   around implementing open data policies in the public sector. It
   brings together government departments, standards bodies,
   academic institutions, commercial organisations, trade
   associations and interest groups to identify what does and
   doesn’t work, what is and isn’t practical, what can and can’t
   be expected of different stakeholders.

   http://www.w3.org/2013/share-psi/workshop/samos/report
   http://www.w3.org/2013/share-psi/

   In the first workshop, held as part of the 5th Annual Samos
   Summit on ICT-enabled Governance, the focus was Uses of Open
   Data Within Government for Innovation and Efficiency. The
   report shows the many different strategies being adopted to
   foster a culture of data sharing across the public sector
   leading to significant efficiencies in operation, more
   effective delivery of the public task, reduced corruption and
   greater trust in important institutions like the police. From
   Helsinki to Athens via Dublin and Zagreb, from Oslo to Madrid
   via Tirana, Tenerife and Trentino – the public sector is making
   smarter use of the Web.

   http://samos-summit.org/

   The Samos workshop also sets us up nicely for the next workshop
   in the series. Taking place in Lisbon in the first week in
   December, Encouraging open data usage by commercial developers
   will be highly interactive with many facilitated discussions
   and very few presentations.

   http://www.w3.org/2013/share-psi/workshop/lisbon/

   W3C membership is not required to participate. The event is
   open to all, but all participants are required to submit a
   position paper or statement of interest by 5 October 2014.
   Share-PSI 2.0 is coordinated by W3C/ERCIM as part of the Data
   Activity and is closely aligned with the Data on the Web Best
   Practices Working Group.

CSS Ruby Layout Module Level 1 Draft Published

   5 August 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/3990

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "CSS Ruby Layout Module Level 1." “Ruby”, a
   form of interlinear annotation, are short runs of text
   alongside the base text. They are typically used in East Asian
   documents to indicate pronunciation, or to provide a short
   annotation. This module describes the rendering model and
   formatting controls related to displaying ruby annotations in
   CSS. CSS is a language for describing the rendering of
   structured documents (such as HTML and XML) on screen, on
   paper, in speech, etc. Learn more about the Style Activity.
