Finding and Future Direction of the W3C Social Web Incubator Group (SWXG) - Mischa Tuffield (Garlik Ltd)
Abstract: As a W3C Incubator group (XG), the primary responsibility was to produce a final report summarising discussions with other groups, and was to propose a way forward for the W3C to participate productively in the wider Social Web ecosystem. The Incubator group has surveyed the landscape of community driven standards, focusing on the wider Social Web initiatives from outside the W3C, in order to facilitate future W3C efforts in and around the Social Web. The talk will start by defining the concepts of interest to the XG, followed by a description of the work undertaken by the group, and will hint at the future direction recommended by SWXG to the W3C.
