DOM Scripting: A Web Standard

The deed is finally done: the WaSP DOM Scripting Task Force, mainly noted for its unnoticeability, has been disbanded.

Jeremy and I first discussed this back in October, and again in November. We were agreed that there was no more need for this Task Force, and several other members agreed with us.

Early this month I began to become a bit impatient. I decided to act on my own and sent a mail of resignation to the TF, only to have it rejected by the mail server because it was obviously Nigerian spam!

It was at that precise moment in time that I gave up on WaSP. Childish, I know, but it's a fitting symbol of what's wrong with WaSP.

I sent on my mail to Jeremy and Dori privately, and unsubscribed from the TF mailing list in a fit of pique. Now it turns out that they've done the right thing.

As Jeremy says, DOM scripting still needs a lot of work, but we don't need the Task Force for that.

Me, IE8 and Microsoft Versioning

Molly disagrees not so much with the versioning switch, but rather with the secrecy in which the talks were held.

WaSP Street Team

A new WaSP initiative: the Street Team. Sign up if you want to do something practical for web standards in your neighbourhood. In fact, I'm going to need a few Dutch and Flemish Street Teamers for a project I'll give the details of later, so if you're Dutch speaking and want to get involved, please sign up!
