There seems to be a lot of interest to do work on the Web, but I find it difficult to see how all this activity translates into Web specifications.

Here are just some events in the next month or two:

* Mobile Business 2005 Ok, sounds .biz, but it is academic.
* Web Intelligence ACM and IEEE at it in Europe.
* Device Independent Web Engineering by the International Conference on Web Engineering. I am not too sure who these guys are.
* Xtech – XML and Beyond by the Ex-XML guys, which Ian is going to.
* And of course W3.org’s little private meetings between sponsors, er… members.


If you like this, you might like the stateless Web kiosk software I develop. Webconverger typically replaces Windows on PCs and is deployed in public and business environments for ease of deployment and privacy. Once installed it auto-updates making it painless to maintain. Try it where you exclusively use the only viable open platform... the Web!
