The web standards project – job done

“Our work here is done” – the immortal final words of the web standards project. Please, read the post, for me it’s a tearjerker, and I’ll tell you why.

Before I left uni, when I still didn’t know what I wanted to do, I found the WaSP group online and thought, “that’s amazing – people from all walks of life and competing companies no less, all getting together to make possibly the world’s most important invention a better place. I want to do what they do”

Many years later, as the web standards project closes its doors, I help to run a web standards meetup group, speak at conferences on web standards and evangelise their use every day. Thank you WaSP members for inspiring me to be where I am today.

Thank you so much
