Adopt a Blog #31 – The Web Standards Project

Alex Christie

4 March 2009

The Web Standards Project was started in 1998. The aim of the project is to fight for standards that reduce the cost and complexity of development while increasing the accessibility and long-term viability of any site published on the Web. The site itself contains many tutorials and notes on what the project has achieved so far. The Buzz section of the site contains the blog.

I have been following this blog since the beginning of the year and so far there have only been 5 new blog entries posted. I looked back in the archives to 2005 and it looks like the blog was a lot more active back then, so maybe it is past its heyday. Most of the blog entries are feedback from web development and web standard conferences. There was an interesting post earlier this year,  that  details how the readers of the blog actually managed to change the UK’s official browser guidelines. 

I would only recommend this blog to people with a strong interest in web
standards or web developers.AdoptABlog
