You will not believe this, but WaSP and Microsoft have formed a task force to promote web standards. This will most likely help affecting and improve what IE 7 will support and what Visual Studio.NET 2005 and ASP.NET will deliver. It is indeed good news!
Of course there are many obstacles in the way, and most likely the products won’t be perfect. But still, it’s such a good initiative and if it only delivers half of my hopes the web will be a much much better place!
The discussion and praise goes on in Molly‘s WaSP to Collaborate with Microsoft to Promote Web Standards post, where Molly also outs that there will be some kind of announcement on July 15th.
I was actually smiling on the way home from work yesterday, after finding this out. WaSP and Microsoft, please make me smile in the future too.
PS. I really like Summer and all, but this morning, when I was riding my bike (“riding my bike” sounds a hell of a lot cooler than “bicycling”) to the train station, I got a bug the size of a B 52 in my eye. After a long train ride it finally just came out of my eye, and my colleague was astounded by the size of it… DS.
