Lots of things happened at the W3C TPAC 2104 conference. It was a busy week in web standards.
HTML5 became an official W3C Recommendation, the W3C turned 20, and the web itself celebrated its 25th anniversary. In amongst all these momentous events there was still time for the assembled W3C participants to explore new ideas through a series of lightning talks, and now the lightning talks are starting to be made available for everyone to share.
A highlight of TPAC, for me, was to be in the audience for the lightning talks and hear my dear friend and colleague Léonie Watson, in just 4 minutes, say so much about what we as participants in the development of web standards at the W3C could do, to re-invigorate and broaden our approach, to fulfill the promise of an accessible web.
