It seems like I am not the only one on the HTML WG bandwagon.
I thought this mail about the workgroup’s use of ‘dated’ IRC and ‘old school’ mailing list by Gavin Pearce was hilarious. A little early for April the 1st though.
Though seriously, I am little worried about the clash of cultures on the WG. I think there are four types:
- The dreamy semantic/XML W3C staff
- The confused corporate guys featuring Microsoft stalling, yet leading the WG of the API that rivals its core business!
- The frustrated ‘old school’ WHATWG people
- The unwashed Web2.0 “Web designer”
Update: I couldn’t resist joining the fray.
