W3C Greeting Card

To help W3C celebrate ten years of Leading the Web to its Full Potential we invited people to send us a greeting. The greeting card closed 31 December 2004.

There are 451 greetings.

Greetings from Viorel Ghelbert

Happy Anniversary, W3C!

Without your effort, the Web definitely wouldn't be as "World Wide" as we know it today.

For this reason I'd like to express my admiration and an infinite gratefulness for everything that you've done for the last 10 years as well as for everything that you will accomplish in the future (and I know you will).

As to "Leading the Web to Its Full Potential" - in my humble opinion - you're on the right path.

Just keep it up!

Web is Changing Me

Kind Attn:W3C

Many thanks to Tim Berners-lee creating such an easy interconnect tool as WWW, to all the participants "to lead the web to its full potential".

I'm from a backward rural area in China, where simple web techniques are suitable to change the traditional chalk+plus+blackboard teaching method. It's regetful that although W3C has walked through ten years, quite a lot of teachers in junior and senior schools in China don't benefit from resources linked together, or even do not touch a computer.

It happened one day W3.org was searched, where richness shocked me,and especially the tutorials,I think, concise, authentic, easy to understand, are the very things for me and educators from China rural regions. I have a resolution in 2005 as a volunteer to translate some essays in to Chinese in W3C website.

Best regards,

Frank Lee

A Decade Without Peers

I've enjoyed the Internet and all its glory of potential from early in my military days during its infancy when it was not yet the WWW. As a want-to-be web designer in more recent times, I've found W3C to be the premier source for information, resources, and yes, humility. As W3C marks this occasion, may we all be grateful for thier continued diligence in quality web surfing experiences.

W3C is peerless! Happy Birthday!

Thank You

Sir Berners-Lee,

I would like to thank you and the w3c for w3c.org. It has proved to be an invaluable resource to my career as a programmer. The documentation is impeccable, and has been relied upon to ensure correct and reliable operation of our coding with regard to CGI, html and HTTP, often on a daily basis.

Here's to another 10 years of stewardship and guidance. I honestly can't see how the www would operate without standards, documentation of those standards, and ready availability of the information organized and provided by the w3c. All of the accolades the w3c is recieving, on this 10th anniversary, cannot possibly illustrate the true importance and positive impact the w3c has had on the lives of hundreds of millions of people including myself. Most people don't know who the w3c is, yet unknowingly benefit from the quiet pursuit of your work, in their daily lives.

Thank you for the internetwork's information standard as we know it today. The internetwork's capability to provide useful information to anyone with a browser or other standards based network client is largely due to the efforts of you and your organization. It's been a very bumpy road, I am sure, but the perseverence of you and the w3c has and will continue to pay off, more and more every year, with each new user.

Here's to many returns.

Cheers and Happy 10th Anniversary,

Neil Davis

then celebrate. Hopefully by that time

Thank you for being a standard that we can all work toward for the past 10 years.

It's still frustrating to know though that there are some web developers and designers out there who insist on refusing to follow web standards. Is there some official title for these people? I wish there was some way to more easily weed them out. They're really frustrating to have to work with.

Congratulations with your 10-year anniversary, which has avoided unnecessary chaos in the information exchange on the Internet and has brought us some very well-designed standards for everyone to use.

I wish you luck in your future standards design work, which will lead to more effective and flexible information storage and exchange between different platforms and applications.

If I would have one wish for your future work, it would be: Keep sticking to open, unencumbered file formats which you've done so far, without letting commercial interests influence the design process in a way that is unneccesarily complicated or ineffective. You've done great so far.

10 Years? You Don't Look a Day Over 100!

In other words, it's hard to believe the W3C is *only* 10 years old. It seems the organization has been with us forever. Yes, I vaguely recall the halcyon days of the Web before W3C was formed. And I even dimly remember what the world was like before the Web. But HTTP, HTML, XML, and all the numerous other specifications that the W3C has brought to fruition are such a part of our lives, especially those of us working in technology.

Thank you, W3C, for all your labors of love over the past 10 years. I can't wait to see what your fertile minds will conjure up in the next 10 years!

Sustaining the W3

I find it re-assuring to know this organisation has been overseeing and assisting developments in the Web for ten years now. As new technologies will emerge it is imperative to keep perspective on the original goals and not let any one organisation or company monopolise its use, as this remains one of the largest threats to one of the last bastions of true democracy. Furthermore I hope coming generations will honour the guidelines set out by W3 as well.

Congratulations W3 and thank you for taking this responsibility so well.

W3C works hard and often hands in good work. But it will have to resist the temptation to rest on its laurels next year. Its work sometimes suffers, as it is easily distracted by some of the noisier standards organisations in the class and so needs to work on its self-discipline and concentraion. Its spelling, dress sense and general tidyness could also improve.

I can't stress enough how Mozilla have made me want to work the web again after several years of non-interest because of Microsoft playing lip service to standards.

so young!

Wow--it seems, to us youn'ins here, almost as if the web has been around forever: how did people learn things, quickly and on obscure topics, or communicate easily, without it?

And yet, it's younger than the current college freshmen, who don't even remember the Berlin Wall falling, much less life before the internet.

Thank you--it has made so many aspects of my life so much easier than they otherwise would have been, to have an accessible, universally standardized system for worldwide communication. What a thrilling time to be alive and learning! Also, thanks for saving so many trees and so much time.

As to changes, besides the obvious possible further improvements speed and reliability, it would be nice to see a standard for how recently a page has been updated. I also hope that more of the legalistic (eg copyright, filtering, corporate control issues), logistical wrinkles get ironed out, and that access becomes even more useful (via unbiased searches and such) and universal (accesible, available, cheap, language support...).

Many returns!

Greeting from SchoolsZone.org


Thank you very much for your hard work to come up with standards that bring the world together. The web is both a cost effective and very clean publishing solution for all of us. Even students in primary and secondary schools could now publish their work on the web.

Your work is influencing every one in many different ways. Learning is no longer limited to the classroom as the web now becomes the greatest learning resources. Organisations of all sizes including governments, non-profits and businesses make use of the web in many different ways. Both the intranet and the web become part of our daily life.

I hope in the years to come you will make the web even more useful and friendly. Your work on VoiceXML will make the web more accessible. I hope you will add skeletal strokes to SVG one day. I am also looking forward to the day when all of us could enjoy 3D on the web and when semantic web becomes part of our daily life.

I wish all of you healthy and happy!

My work at MIT as a half-time Technology & Law Program administrative secretary to Prof. Nick Ashford and Group (including Caldart et al.) had me stationed just around the corner from W3C offices at the very beginning of this exciting Internet growth, based on W3C imposed standards. Tim Berniers-Lee came by on a visit from CERN one day, wandered over, and talked shop a bit with me concerning the future of the Internet. I put my two cents in, and think to this day I had an impact on "The Web". When I think back to my early days at University of Illinois, when I took an introductory computer programming class I really enjoyed (Fortran/PL1) I think I really missed my calling. But proximity to W3C was nice while it lasted. They had some attractive staffers, also. One female hailed from Newport, RI. Sometimes, I wonder where she is nowadays. Have not attended the Newport Jazz Festival once in my life, but maybe next Summer....

Well done W3C! You have become a cultural resource for humankind. You have achieved this not through money and political power, but by the idealism, dedication, and hard work of your members. May it continue to be so, for in the next ten years you must meet the many challenges of making the Web a means of furthering knowledge to all of humankind, for in knowledge lies the hope of world peace. Best wishes for the next 10 years!

One aspect of the Web I would like to see changed - I would like the W3C to involve itself much more with the issues of Intellectual Property Rights, and Software Patents. At the least the W3C should provide an international forum for disussion of these very important, and contentious, issues.

One new feature that I would find useful - Each piece of software sold or published could be issued a unique number in much the same way that books have the International Standard Book Number (ISBN). If this is worth doing, the W3C might be the place to initiate it.

I only learned of the W3C perhaps a year ago now, but have since become an avid follower of such a worthy cause.

The W3C serves an important purpose in recognising that as the capabilities of technology expand, so do the obstacles presented to many sectors of our communities. By developing standards that overcome these obstacles, the W3C ensures that the internet remains the inclusive global society it was founded as.

For enabling communication without borders, across platforms and without unjustly denying any section of the community, I say thank you, and congratulations.

Thanks for so elegantly establishing limits around which, against which, and through which we can structure our creativity. Without you we would be a fuzzy, broken, artsy-fartsy mess.

One aspect of the Web that I would like to see changed? Um, how about an image format that supports alpha transparency cross-browser, without the aid of complicated hacks and workarounds? Could you give Microsoft (IE) a little nudge in that department?

Absolutely FAB

Gret fab brill all I can say, I started off 2 years ago to build up a business on the web and got so consumed by "programs" to make it easy I thought I knew it all. Now it's back to basics and learning again HTML and XHTML plus all my Java and CSS etc again. Made a vow after reading through this site that I am going to "code" my next site all by myself and learn other stuff plus going to partition my box so that I can host the site from home.

Making the WEB a better place

I am, these days, writing a presentation-show on the WEB.

The way it was ten years ago, how it is now, how it presumably will be within the next couple of years.

As soon as I've seen the data, which I'd suspected none the less, I've been even more shocked than I've thought I would be.

Amazing!!! I mean you did this!!! I Know that we all did this, that this all might not have been possible without the effort of all the human beings that helped out for this achievement, one way or another. Nevertheless YOU GUYS at W3C ACTUALLY DID THIS!!!

Thanks a lot mates, cheers and....

The triumph of good over evil

Possibly a marginally exaggerated title, but given this depressingly capitalist mindset that many on the planet live with, to hear the heroic story of Tim Berners-Lee et al deciding upon the open-sourced, non-profit, human life improving direction of development, is wonderfully refreshing and encouraging.

Personally, I look forward to home appliances and the home computer merging formally. I envisage a server hidden under the stairs or somewhere, and many terminals and other devices dotted around the home. There would be larger terminal screens with remote controls for use as TVs, but the signal for current satellite/cable/digital channels will be received via a high-speed internet connection. There would also be detailed heating/air conditioning systems, lighting, home-wide audio/video/telecommunication, heavily assisted cooking, the list goes on…

But before I get too carried away, a toast: to the W3C and all who sail in her...!

Ten years, and already so much has been accomplished!

The world is a better and richer place because of the W3C. The technological advances have been great. However, the social influence of the W3C has been its most significant contribution to mankind. The attitude of openness and sharing has profoundly changed the way the industry operates, and will continue to enable people to stand on the shoulders of giants.

* Tim B-L and the founders

* The host organizations

* The staff ("team")

* The member organizations whose payments have sustained the W3C infrastructure

* The technical contributors who have participated in working groups and interest groups and workshops

* The chairs of groups and the editors of specifications

* Member representatives who have served on the Advisory Board, the Advisory Committee, the TAG etc.

Building consensus has taken a lot of hard work, creativity, diligence, debate, compromises, diplomacy, long-airline flights for face-to-face meetings complete with bad air and bad airline food ( :-) ) ... backed up with skill and passion. But we all know that this organization has paid a critical role in one of the most significant social, economic, cultural and technological innovations since radio & television . . .

An Ode to the W3C: WC3 oh W3c without you poorly displayed we would be

I would like to thank all members of the W3C Community, especially the developers who constantly question what we are all doing here. Functionality and design flow from your RSS feeds like fresh papaya juice from a sieve. Keep up the good work for many more years to come.

Thank YOU, W3C! For one of the greatest telecommunications accomplishment ever created. I find it better than the telephone, personally.

This is the most detailed, comprehensive website in the world for resources that help both people and business to accomplish more than ever before on the WWW. I am constantly reading and learning from it.

Now, all we need is for W3C to provide a list of current user agents, that already support the many Recommendations that have been in use in the past, present, and in the future in a simple table.

Along with links to the many member website pages that would allow non-member users to find and download latest conforming patches for their copy of said user agents, no matter the version, should they become available.

Keep up the wonderful work! I look forward to the future of W3C, which will help me greatly in accomplishing my goals.

Your organization is the one I currently use as "the" ideal case of a successful team whose purpose is to guide the present into the future. Even though it has only been 10 years, you are already the most powerful historical inspiration to me and, I don't doubt, countless others. Happy birthday, W3C!

Thank you for the interesting work

A big thank you for all the good times I've had with information on the web, and for all the interesting problems I have had to think about learning and programming for the web in the past 10 years. A special thanks to Tim himself for making taking the effort of advocating his invention and for releasing it to the public domain. I feel that the Semantic Web is now where the web was ten years ago, people back then asked why I put documents on the web and why I insisted that the web had made distribution of meeting minutes on paper obsolete. Now, I get the same questions about FOAF, RDF and the Semantic Web in general. I'm sure the next ten years will bring many interesting changes, and only when the Semantic Web is realized, we will step into the real knowledge-based society. I'm sure the people of the W3C will provide the thoughts that will bring about many of these changes.

Greeting from Alexey Feldgendler

Happy birthday, W3C!

You've been doing a great job all these years. The Web would now be a mess without your efforts, trapped in hundreds of incompatible proprietary solutions. After some critical point, the content developers would become unable to support the majority of these solutions, and the Web would end divided into separate unconnected spaces, each available only to users of some specific browser, web server, or hardware platform. Thank you so much for not letting this come true.

I remember the old `best viewed with Internet Explorer' and `best viewed with Netscape Navigator' banners. Happily nowadays I don't have to do anything like this. Instead, I'm proud to put the `valid HTML 4.01' banner on my pages. If I follow the standards, my work is usable, and it looks and behaves predictably.

Though not all of your initiatives have been widely accepted by the community, you have made the Web significantly better -- more consistent, more robust, more accessible. I wish that your further success in the noble quest you're in makes tomorrow's Web even more worldwide.

С днём рождения!
