A very belated response after having been traveling all the past two weeks. Last week I was in Warsaw for the IPTC Summer Meeting, and it struck me that those folks-news organizations like the Associated Press, Agence France Presse, Thomson-Reuters, the New York Times, and news agencies in various countries, to name a few-are also missing from the discussion. They are doing lots of very interesting things and are highly committed to Web technologies (semantic and otherwise). They are more up on RDF, JSON, HTML5, and other technical topics than most other sectors of publishing. And given both the extremely high volume of content they create and disseminate and the speed with which it is interchanged, they are all about machine-processable transactions.-Bill K

In keeping with today's discussions (attention scribenick: Nick), do we feel that the W3C is reaching all the stake holders?

Dear chairs,

In the W3C AC forum, there are some discussions about the fact that some key groups, who do now have influence in the web, are not enough represented in W3C. This could refer to framework makers, new services providers, innovative think tank.  In other words, just ask yourself what are the innovative actors who are not in your group and that should be there. Note that this is not about recruiting new members, but making sure the W3C still represents the web at large...
Dropping a names on this mailing list would help. If we receive 100 suggestions, we may conclude that we have some work ahead...
