Working together for standards The Web Standards Project

Over on the WHAT WG front, Ian Hickson has posted an update on the progress of WHAT WG in their efforts to develop backwards-compatible extensions to HTML. Ian’s post includes some very interesting background to the formation of WHAT and the impetus behind their efforts.

Joe Gregorio has some other tidbits to add as well, most importantly his observations on the relationship between the web as we know it and Sun, IBM, Oracle, etc.

While you’re in a background-info frame of mind, you may also want to read Joel Spolsky’s excellent article on Microsoft’s visions for the future of web applications.

Interestingly enough, the WHAT WG seems to be taking a page out of Joel’s strategy book — specifically the one on Fire & Motion.

Interesting days ahead for the web and standards.
