I took my time for that decision, but I have decided that Disruptive Innovations will join the World Wide Web Consortium. I cannot at the same time call for changes inside W3C and remain outside, just an Invited Expert, this is just unfair. Since 2003, I had almost all the advantages of membership without the disadvantages of membership. Time to say thank you. The W3C remains the best place for the evolution of the Word Wide Web as we know it, and the fact they're currently mistaken on XHTML2 is irrelevant. Things should happen there, and I'll try to open their eyes. Furthermore, I've still a lot of things to do in the CSS WG and hopefully a lot of new ideas to bring, and a real full membership is the least I can do for that.
Someone on IRC just told me "wow, so you're rich now:-)". No, the annual fee is still a lot for a small company like Disruptive Innovations. It's just a matter of fairness and moral honesty.
