Hi y'all,

Following up, and in preparation for future meetings, just a few design
thoughts: Sharing a few things that came across my desk recently, reminded
me of our ongoing discussions:

1. This annual report reminded me of Ian's living ecosystem description,
and it got me to wondering, does W3C have an annual report and/or mapping
of it's current ecosystem?: http://annual.foundationcenter.org/

2. Re: stories:

3. Responsive Design:

4. Neural Computing Brain Models:

5. Content strategy, hybrid, multi modal approach - integrating machine -
human and related development issues:

6. Accessibility related, is W3C involved in this?:

Cheers,
