1.36: Web Standards: How and why we standardize

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
This is largely a discussion about standards and about how Mozilla is and should be involved in standards. The first 10-15 minutes will give some brief background about how I look at our involvement in standards (both in terms of what we do and why) and about how standardization works at the W3C and elsewhere. Then I'd like to have a group-wide discussion of questions about standardization, with topics to be determined by those who are present. Potential topics for discussion (though I'm very open to others): what standards we should be working on, where to standardize, openness of standards process, patent policy, speed of process, getting the right parties involved, when the right time to standardize is, how to interact with and implement standards in development, speaking as an individual or on behalf of an organization, when to let other parties take the lead on developing standards, how we track our work on and our opinions of standards, and dealing with discussions that have to be private.
