In a previous post “Individuals influencer of the Web at W3C –utopia?”, I drew up some balance sheet of possibilities for individuals to affiliate with the Web community.
What started as a simple fan club design is evolving into something far more appealing, which is re-aligning with my initial interest of individuals having a voice in the Consortium.
One of the key components of the W3C is the Advisory Committee, composed of one representative from each W3C Member. The Advisory Committee has a number of roles described in the W3C Process: review, appeal, vote.
So, what if we told you that Webizens can run for an Advisory Committee position?
The draft proposal is built in a wiki, the sections of particular relevance are:
The section on Package of benefits hasn’t been updated in a while and might need your input as well. And if you have an opinion on a communication strategy, you’ll be my best friend forever!
The design of the framework is still work in progress, is done in the open and public participation is free. We target to deliver a proposal by early June.
I am seeking feedback and comments, and thank you kindly for it! You may:
- comment in this blog,
- write to the
email@example.com list (publicly archive),
- edit the wiki directly,
- even use IRC (irc.w3.org, port 6665, channel #webizen).
