. @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'
