Re: IoT Payments

Hi Adrian,

We have about 15 minutes available on the 26 January call. If you think that is enough to introduce the topic, then
we can likely accommodate it. (I will confirm with the Chairs). Would you be leading the discussion? 

Here is a link to our TPAC discussion on IOT payments:

My apologies - attempts to convene a task force since then have fallen through.

I think it would help the conversation (and drive interest) if you could  share more on this thread 
about the use cases and scope you have in mind.

Thank you,

The response from the HTTP WG at IETF was that we should continue to evolve this and leverage Wendy as the W3C liaison to IETF in getting input from the HTTP WG as we go.
