This reading has set me on the mission to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the version incremented standard (with no space). These standards have been shaped by the market forces that make up the governing body of the World Wide Web known as the W3C. The market reality of these corporations have shaped and guided the development of industry standards for years1. These corporations are responsible for developing software, lower-level coding standards, and training to build webpages, mobile apps, and other software and hardware that interfacing the public with the World Wide Web.
These standards are the bedrock of the what some term “Web 3.0” or “The Semantic Web”. On this bedrock developers are creating the platforms and applications enabling humanity to consume information that influences society. I will be discussing this in the coming weeks, months, and years as developers write code taking advantage of HTML5. All you have to do sit back, grab a frosty beverage and tune in after the break.
