Last April I unsuccessfully ran for election to the W3C Technical Architecture Group, because I believed that the web standards community needed more outsiders’ voices. The web needs to evolve to support ever increasing diversity of use cases and developer skills, and as a basic necessity and enabler of modern life, its role goes beyond technology platforms. I didn’t win in April, but I tried again in the December 2015 election and today I am incredibly proud to be the newest member of the TAG.
The Technical Architecture Group is a special group at the W3C which oversees the architecture of the Web. It is composed of 9 individuals, mostly elected for 2 year terms, and is chaired by Tim Berners Lee. I would like to join it, and I’d like your help to get elected.
