Title: Inside the sausage factory, or: what it's like to be on a standards committee

==================================

In 2010-2011 I served on a W3C incubator group (pre-standardization activity) and in 2011-2013 on a subsequent W3C Working Group which produced four recommendations (W3C "standards") and a number of less formal documents ("notes").  In this lab lunch I'll talk about this experience, hopefully providing answers to the following questions (at least with respect to W3C activity):

 

- How do standards get made?

- Can theory/foundations contribute effectively to standards?

- Is it a good idea to get involved in a standardization activity?
