A wonderful day at @UKGovCamp@twitter.com.
Inspiring to see old friends, to meet new people and learn from their perspectives, and to hear what some of the most creative and determined parts of our public sector are accomplishing.
One of the best days of the year.
Today’s @tag meeting:
* Intersection observer v2 and clickjacking
* MathML — how can we help it grow?
* Vehicle information service specification — how cars use web technologies for diagnostics and infotainment
Today's @tag mtg included:
• Background fetch — the data you send, and how it could be used to get info on you
• Media capabilities API, so the website knows what kind of video etc to send you
• MathML and math on the web

And the paper:

And for those of you who prefer podcasts...
I got this from BBC Radio4’s The History of Delusions. This is the episode on the Future:
One for both the webVR/#webXR and the #healthtech communities...
People suffering from delusions try to keep themselves safe from what they fear may hurt them — for example by not going outside.
They do stay safe, which reinforces this decision.
Today’s @w3ctag mtg included:
• A brief investigation into delivering WebRTC not by browser APIs but by webassembly code... which takes away the “user agent” part of the web.
• Constructible CSS Style Sheets (bonus points for acronym: CCSSSS)
“We need to move from the traditional ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach we’ve had to healthcare, towards more personalised and targeted interventions that meet the needs of individuals in a way that is right for them”
