Other web standards experts worried about HTML 5

More web standards experts have begun expressing worries about the direction HTML 5 is currently going. Roger Johansson, writer for the excellent 456 Berea Street blog, has written a few posts on the subject. From one of the posts: “What is currently going on in the W3C HTML Working Group is very disappointing and something I never expected to see when I joined it. I was naive enough to think that everybody joining the HTML WG would be doing so out of a desire to improve the Web. Unfortunately, that does not seem to be the case”

    This is depressing stuff. Short of joining The System and immersing oneself in the ever-more-inexplicable decrees of the W3C WGs, is there anything that can be done about this?

    Joining the group and participating in the discussion isn’t a difficult process. Just follow Ian Hickson’s instructions.

    I’m part of the working group, although I haven’t had much free time lately to participate in the rapid discussion, which is why I’ve just made a few public blog posts on the subject.
