  1. Paul Ford on HTML5 and the World of Web Standards Bodies

    Nice description of how standards like HTML5 come to be, and why it’s important. (via Daring Fireball)

  3. Metafoundry 15: Scribbled Leatherjackets

    I’ve always been a little uneasy about the enthusiastic “makers are good, non-makers are bad” distinction that’s implicit in a lot of things in “our” world these days. Deb Chachra does a good job of explaining why. (via many people)
