Technology Standards Advocate
World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) recently created a working group for the purposes of standardizing web annotation, based on the output of the Open Annotation Community Group that has been discussed at previous CNI events. The working group received the most positive reviews in W3C’s history, showing the global and cross-sector support for the effort. This presentation will update the community regarding the ongoing efforts of standardization, with an emphasis on the benefits of taking work from project status up through a community group and on to the global stage.
