Progress, a Task Force proposal and a MIRACLE

During spring 2014 a lot has happened: After reporting the outcome of the Task Force’s talks and discussions to the CEO Coalition to make the Internet a better place for kids, the participants of the Task Force finally agreed on a first proposal for a data model concerning interoperable, machine-readable age classification data. Please find attached the final proposal document.

However, for this W3C community group this is not the place to stop. If anything, this is the starting signal to work on a common technical specification for age classification information based on this proposal. How? Well, in the meantime the MIRACLE project has received funding by the European Union – MIRACLE stands for “Machine-readable and interoperable age classification labels in Europe”. The first thing of this pilot project will be to agree on a data model on the grounds of the attached Task Force proposal. The project consortium (with me being the project co-ordinator) will post the first draft of that technical specification here on the W3C platform in mid-June for public comments and consultation. In the meantime, have a look at the MIRACLE website for more information on the project and its activities:
