A quick update on where we are with the Web Payments work.

We are now having regular weekly telecons[1]. We've had Mozilla, Joyent,
Digital Bazaar, a few anonymous banks, GSMA, a big crypto company,
Google, and a number of other independents joining the calls. We're
actively working on a Web Commerce API[2] (based on MozPay API),
PaySwarm[3], HTTP Signatures[4], Web Keys[5], and a number of other
supporting specs for the Web Payments work. We're making good progress
and getting more aligned on what the goals of the group should be over
the next couple of years.

I'm booked for at least 10 different events during the next 6 months to
talk about the Web Payments work happening at W3C during these industry

 * Inside Bitcoins[6]
 * SIBOS 2013[7] (the world banking/financial services conference)
 * Edge[8] (Conference put on by Financial Times / Google)
 * Open Financial (Los Angeles financial services forum)
 * Mozilla / Google (tech talks)
 * Internet Governance Forum[9] (United Nations)
 * W3C TPAC 2013[10] (need to coordinate more with W3C on this)

My main goal during these presentations is to recruit more people into
the Web Payments work, focusing on companies that have typically not had
a presence at W3C (mostly financial services companies). If any of you
want me to touch on specific points during these conferences, please let
me know what those should be.
