LEAD THE WEB TO ITS FULL POTENTIAL: The Architecture Domain seeks a Web
technology evangelist and consensus-builder to help the development of
Web technology standards and their deployments across the enterprise.


    * Consensus building: work with W3C Working Group Participants so
that both working groups in the Web Services activity, as well as other
W3C activities, produce Web standards that support the Web Architecture
    * Architectural & technical leadership: provide guidance to
technical working groups in the design and evolution of Web
infrastructure, including the Web Architecture itself, or services for
the Web and the enterprise (SOAP or HTTP-only based).
    * Evangelization: Build support among user and vendor communities
for the Web Architecture by illustrating the benefits to those
    * Industry outreach and liaison: Establish liaisons with other
technical standards bodies involved in Web-related technology to ensure
compliance with existing Web standards and collect requirements for

The goal of the Architecture Domain is maintain and extend some of the
Core technologies of the World Wide Web, including URI/IRI, XML, Web
Services, and Internationalization. The W3C Architecture technologies
enable people to exchange data on the Web every day from the protocol
level, with HTTP and SOAP, and to the application level, with XML, XML
Schema, or WSDL. It also includes technologies for data manipulation,
with XSL Transformations, DOM, or XML Query. Our focus is to improve the
stability of the existing platform; this includes interoperability
between world wide applications, and extending their capabilities.
