Do you dare tour the sausage factory?

A session at Scotch on the Rocks

Friday 6th June, 2014

10:00am to 10:50am (GMT)

Everyone who's not wrong and/or evil agrees that standards are best for the Web. But how do standards get made? As a veteran of the standardisation world for a decade, I'll shock you by revealing the torrid reality of the standardisation process. Not for the faint-heared, we'll go from the ancient Romans, IE5, Apple's unclosed tag madness,trainspotting, Wilbur and XHTML2. Do you dare tour the sausage factory
