W3C Launches Web of Things initiative

   21 January 2015 | Archive

   W3C announced today a new Web of Things initiative to develop
   Web standards for enabling open markets of applications and
   services based upon connected sensors and actuators (the
   Internet of Things) and the Web of data. Open standards will be
   essential to realising the huge potential. We invite you to
   join the new Web of Things Interest Group and drive work on use
   cases, requirements, and best practices. The aim is to build a
   shared vision and identify specific opportunities for
   standardization.

   So far work on the Internet of Things has focused on the
   sensors and actuators and the associated communication
   technologies. Comparatively little attention has been given to
   what is needed for services to break free of today’s product
   silos. Web technologies are considered to be very promising,
   including the role of scripting languages like JavaScript for
   defining services. However, there is considerable work left to
   do to support discovery and interoperation of services, along
   with attention to security, privacy, accessibility and
   resilience in the face of faults and attacks.

   The potential if we get this right is huge and will greatly
   expand the scale of the Web. Please join us to help address the
   many challenges.

   wd=first-public-working-draft-frame-timing

   The Web Performance Working Group has published a First Public
   Working Draft of "Frame Timing." This specification defines an
   interface to help web developers measure the performance of
   their applications by giving them access to frame performance
   data to facilitate smoothness (i.e. Frames per Second and Time
   to Frame) measurements. Learn more about the Rich Web Client
   Activity.
