Hi folks :)

Well, being a poor guy from a poor, yet proud, continent (Africa)
we always are limited by resources and technical means.

So I think we should maintain a text file, somewhere on the
net where we can have a list of available copies of the
validator to switch queries amongst them.

Here's how I see it:

Universal validators pool:
===================
http://domain/blahblah/validators.txt

Each line of the precedent file will contain a url
to the validator copy

Our apps will fetch and cache this file and use
it as a list of available servers to query randomly
so that multiple and several queries wont hurt the W3C
server.

I still humbly think that the use of an API is because
of the lake of local resources. Because if everyone had
the chance to own his copy of the validator, why would he
use the api when he simply could make custom templates
and generate his content the way he want it to be.
Don't you think?

So here's the first two domains I know.
Brett, thanks for your university's one ;-)

Maybe with an efficient collective googling
on site:.edu we could make this list bigger?

Take a look at this humble start:
