I enjoyed living in Austin and I like to visit when I can. My last trip was more for MIT research stuff; this time it’s W3C business.
I took SxSWi 2007 off my travel schedule when the TAG scheduled a meeting at MIT the week before, but I put it back on when I saw this panel:
- Browser Wars Retrospective: Past, Present and Future Battlefields
Tuesday, March 13th
10:00 am – 11:00 am
Arun Ranganathan AOL
Brendan Eich CTO, Mozilla
Charles McCathieNevile CSO, Opera Software
Chris Wilson IE Platform Architect, Microsoft
The reinventing HTML saga culminated in a big announcement this week: W3C Launches New HTML Working Group. Chris Wilson and I are the co-chairs. Karl Dubost and I are working on the HTML WG page this week.
I fly into Austin Monday, just in time to see the Growth and Evolution of Microformats panel; then I fly home Tuesday. The panel schedule has so much cool stuff from content developers that I would have loved to go for the whole thing… not to mention the music festival.
If you can catch me while I’m there, I’ll have some Mobile Web Best Practices flip cards to hand out.
Shawn Henry is presenting Accessiblity: A Report From the Trenches this Sunday. See W3C Talks for some more details.
I have lots of fond memories of Austin; maybe we can make a few more next week?
