The Heroes of Web Standards

James on

Web standards are a game of compromise over technical details in service of the exchange of information across the globe via the World Wide Web. Web standards are often long; hundreds of thousands of words across hundreds of documents. The job is relatively thankless. You may never have met someone who works in web standards, but if you are reading this page you are using the work of those who work in web standards

Great post on the complexity of keeping web standards open. It’s not only a technical challenge, but a huge UN level exercise in politics and compromise. Huge not worthy bow to these unsung heroes.
