I’m looking forward to talking about NHSX at @UKGovCamp@twitter.com today, and seeing what the rest of the community are working on.

Once a year, we all come together to share, inspire, recharge and reconnect. It’s going to be a great day.

This week's @tag meetings included:

• Web Transport, to improve games and live streaming
• Proposals for APIs to measure clicks (like on an ad) -> conversion (like a purchase)


.@NHSX needs a Director to create our Skunkworks team!

You’ll lead a team of product managers, developers and user researchers to build prototypes, to work with users on new ideas, and to expand our understanding of what’s possible.

Closes 15 Jan


‪Last call! Recruitment for ’s new Director of Standards & Interoperability — closes tonight at 23:59. ‬

‪We just need a CV and a personal statement to get things started.‬

‪Looking forward to hearing from you!‬


As we all head out to vote today, it’s a good time to remember the people who make our democracy work.

Polling station staff, returning officers, ballot box movers, count teams… Thanks to you and to everyone else who make our elections happen.

. @torgo, @dbaron and I resolved our issue on the proposed hrefTranslate attribute, for a referring page to hint to the browser that the user is likely to want it to show the next page in another language.



We've explored how we use our time: how much should be design reviews, looking at proposed features for the web - vs - writing broader findings & guides on the architecture of the web.

We want to maximise our impact, balancing the hands-on with the theoretical.

New from the @tag:
Updated Ethical Web Principles.

• Improved text on accessibility for people with disabilities
• Moving beyond the browser-based web to include data
• Enhanced sustainability language
• Clearer text on 'open' and 'decentralized'


And we've started day 2 reviewing and approving the changes to our @tag Ethical Web Principles. New doc to follow.

Agenda and minutes for today: github.com/w3ctag/meetings/blo

. @torgo and I spent most of the afternoon reviewing issues and proposing edits to the @tag's Ethical Web Principles.

Old draft: w3ctag.github.io/ethical-web-p

Proposed edits: github.com/w3ctag/ethical-web-

We hope to publish new draft during this face-to-face.

Going back to the best practices for publishing data on the web... (a classic!)


Moving on with the breakouts... @torgo , @plinss and I were joined by
to talk about MathML Core.


. @hober@twitter.com
and I looked at the proposal for a Trust Token API, so that an issuer could give you tokens to vouch that they know you're a human. Advertisers, some sites, etc want to know this. This should replace CAPTCHAs and the like.

Our thoughts: github.com/w3ctag/design-revie


‪Today’s @tag meeting:‬

‪• Periodic background sync, for ex uploading news articles to be read later‬
‪• When you buy something, delegating the duty to fill in your contact info to the payment handler (rather than typing it in yourself), if you want‬


Are you into standards? Do you dream about the rules that let systems talk to each other? Are you frustrated when blood tests from one hospital can’t be seen in another?

needs you!

We’re recruiting a Director of Standards & Interoperability


‪Today’s @tag meeting included:‬

‪• Get installed related apps API, so a web app can work out if it should send the user to a native app (iOS, Android etc)‬
‪• Raw clipboard access API (ongoing discussion for us)‬


Today’s @tag meeting:

An in-depth discussion of proposed hrefTranslate, for a referring page to hint to the browser/UA that the user is likely to want it to translate the next page into a particular language.

Use cases include: Google Translate, which will assume you want the site you’re clicking on to be translated.

Thanks to @dtapuska@twitter.com & @chrishtr@twitter.com for joining us!
