Perhaps you’ve noticed Coremob has been on an extended break, but now it’s time to get back to work!
Despite the silence, I hope you’ve noticed the recent announcement of the formation for the Web and Mobile Interest Group. Well just in case you hadn’t spotted that, on 20th August W3C announced that it had been formed. Hopefully you’ll recall the discussions on this list about the creation of that group and what it should do. Well, it has taken a little time, but the resulting charter has been agreed and the brand new IG has a home page.
Now, since I am co-chair of that group it goes without saying really that I encourage you to join it! I do appreciate that the home page is a little bare at the moment, but I hope you will bear with me and my wonderful co-chairs get some substance around this and with the incomparable support of Dom I’m sure that over the next couple of weeks, we will!
Specifically then, a couple of actions and a question.
If your organisation is a W3C member ask your AC rep to join the group and enrol you as a member.
If you don’t have a W3C affiliation then sign up to the public mailing list, on which all work will be carried out. Join the discussion and participate in the work of the group, please.
Finally, the question. Given little traffic on this list, the dormancy of the CG and the explicit intention of the W&M IG to pursue the work of Coremob I think it is time to archive Coremob. Objections?
So, in summary, hurry up and join in the work of the Web and Mobile Interest Group. The Web site may as yet be a little dull, the name of the group isn’t that catchy, yet (but what about WAM!) but with your participation all that will happen (I mean as well as helping shape a future in which the Web is the pre-eminent mechanism for development of cross-platform products and services!)
