Last week following in tradition, TAG had an unofficial teleconference
introducing old and new members and discussing the future and focus of TAG
itself.  During this discussion (and prior to the election) the idea of
bringing TAG closer to/making it more known in and relevant to the
development community was raised (and seemingly supported by the co-chair).
 Given this, I would like to offer the input of just one developer in the
same quick format (with further explanation[1] for anyone who is interested
enough to read)
* Read "build concensus" in the charter as "in the larger community"

* Foster a more direct relationship with the developer community

* More public pressence of TAG members (share blogs, thoughts, give talks,
etc - do more than just publish findings)

* Layers of abstraction, we need them.  The Web serves numerous roles, many
originally unmagined.  TAGs help in uncovering aspects of healthy layers is

* Consider how W3C process/policy affect the long term health of the
environment and architecture and how it helps (or fights) evolution of new

* Draw the right lessons from history/science to create a healthy ecosystem
rather than try to solve too much by design too deeply.
