Speech transcript
you know when I was 2 and a half the being in a and in a Colorado holiday highlight power to others to and I learn the meaning of the word tomorrow and the way that I learned that was a committed stop projecting and I will use this 1 serving the story that I then that was that 1 day the parents said tomorrow we're going to go on a trip to the seaside at a remote as she was Alexios in the car I suddenly realized yesterday we said tomorrow we're going to go and see this trip and here we are doing it that's a lot more remains well for me today's xk C. Davila CD we have a few people to come very geeky cartoon um today's story says every decision we make begins a new story got the politics as it is called to and it says is responding that doesn't like this projector but it's units conveys about the future and how we get from where we are to where we want to be 1 of the so I'm going to be talking about
the open web platform then when he encountered deal that means what I want to talk about whether it's anyone here ever used wear yeah that's why it is not only a few us that 25 years ago there were a a few of the 6 people who say yes a small again by the way it was invented originally because somebody has laid with doing systems work at certain parts of collaboration Geneva and he needed to guess configuration information on computers all over the weekend and so he wanted a way of accessing remote text files the weather was never designed full or anything like traditional publishing it just wasn't and such for it's really bad I can find out Council signed energies the crime has had on the so also so that's what we're going to improve the way I like didn't that so you have you get involved because if publishers of people working with journals with books with documents don't get involved then how are we going to know how to make it better right so I don't and we I wanted to show you some pictures so Troy to and from here no interest a 2nd 1 well maybe we can have wikipaedia back and ranking 1 100 good but whatever it was the shows for furthermore glasses and 1 you've got that right there
room yeah right ge we just don't 1 but there is
URL and treated it as well for those of you following along you in books suicides HTML and CSS Sudanese CSS enough to write the basic style events the other way around it is not necessary this is probably just at the hands of growing get with the program then even is as I is a website right html so perhaps small object the you carry around with you and of course the public full journals that uses HTML and CSS for the 4 books journals or magazines for pornographer wouldn't talk about other for other things so if you are publishing a website and maybe you're doing Princeton maybe you're doing the book so it seems logical the using CSS is the same wherever possible would cut costs you could spend less time developing style sheets than if you use something else to the princess then you used to be the way and reduces the required skill set for the best developers and programmers and actually have many skills he just fake to 10 so what's happening what we're saying is that the open Web platform and its the whole environment around the web is becoming the primary application operating environmental and call an operating system but it's a platform people write applications people you run programs and portable telephones but she quite know how that works you dial numbers on the board have 1 people read books and journals on tablets is anyone have an e-book reader or templates anyone in not have hands have have but I say the Web is not being a good platform for sophisticated forecasting photography so yeah OK but an unknown standing up saying no but was becoming what everyone uses is an inescapable conclusion and we need to fix the web and I work for the World Wide Web Consortium I have a background in typography and digital market and but let's think do they have and similar background says we need to fix what's from sense With the except W. 3 C. of we really a guardian angel we're doing a number of things to start we can't just go out of 6 and so we figure out what's wrong which direction to go in so we're having a series of workshops which started digital publishing activity not tell you more about that in a 2nd and was going interest group which is a stupid name for working Group and we're really encouraging encouraging people around publishing not just people who actually published that tried to keep this slide show but we're trying to encourage publishers but everyone in that ecosystem to get involved not so that more about why this is a list of workshops we've had including about print publishing about internationalization 1 about the books right now this week in San Francisco there isn't workshop about annotations where the annotations and it's something that I know it's quite of great significance in academic publishing and I she was hoping to delays until the summer so that I could tell you about invited to come to it but instead I can say we will be publishing which will likely be publishing a charter for proposed working Group and watch out for it because you you'll be interested in that work is going on and the activities the includes both the books and print anything to do with publishing Web publishing as well of course I figured I didn't need to say that because with the Web consulting with we do with stuff we have an active group that's as the also got minutes of the annotations groups and you can go to W 3 doctorates slash the muralist undecidable words highlighted the source of the traditional publishing group curtains CIS-s part of that this this is crap right but most of the digital publishing group was published requirements for syntax layout and pagination as anyone here requirements that the Japanese text layout a few about half of St. so this is a document this latin Texas document is not that sitting the Western language but the lessons scripts so English Spanish but it talks about the needs that we have a formatting systems such as how to such as everything from bold and italics through to footnotes and has to do don't is on the page that's very and completed the 1st draft but the idea is to use the Kramer from a shaft and people helping him once anyone here heard of fashion yeah OK the 1 of the world's sixth-biggest publishers and he's going about 16 hundred titles a year book titles including similar to New Times bestseller list so you can get with the assassination alright has which is cool because yes he knows what he's talking about he's got a background used XSL-FO but please do send feedback if you look at the draft it tells you have to send feedback on it that is linked to from the from this document all that's the URL if you can write read that really quickly you can go back to my Twitter feed and get the URL may be willing to from the proceedings as Jefferson something you can do we will look at groups also published an annotation use cases documented includes quite a few academic annotation requirements such as don't hearing sharing annotations of acid June enacted generally find what for example I've mentioned her share was also got Bloomberg you've got peers and we've got a number of other publishers out of each receivable tool vendors it's number is actually growing we've got 2 more Nelson solve workshop in Paris with gold um this is joint since just 1 in October the involved quite heavily and safari is another 1 his madness is now insofar as so our goal in the activities to listen to people many of whom are in this room and to give people they need to come to us and told to us because standards work right if the people who are going to use the standard and are involved so that you actually make standards the people that help people with the real problems we're also working with other groups there's a long list I DPF and BIS probably well known to people in certain moments people here in and there's a list standards organizations the roles of things we're doing a changing over time way as as the world is changing as new stories begin and
so we have new ways of working basis of books that happens be lying around in my kitchen the other day well OK but may I carried means my kitchen surviving photographs and had them alive and in my kitchen and bath so if it has a has he's XSL-FO
right about 106 % to composed write 2nd the documents you run them through XSLT but don't need to ask if anyone has use XSLT but you create XSL-FO instance document and you render into the simultaneously you take your input documents you run in 3 different XSLT and you produce the books you make websites you produced invoices for customers all whatever else he did I was going to do a complete slide but I couldn't was he have 250 on 1 1 slide what I should have done is watch some of earlier presentations today because they didn't set up by the for doing but doesn't change much if you go through X HTML and CSS 1 reason it doesn't is because you still need to use a useful thing why I think the next slide will tell us now
so about and html I'm going to say to
you that tastes HTML 5 is not an archival former why not number 1 is not self-identifying identifies standardization of following but you're not required to give a version number date number 10 you can refer to external resources such as Java scripts you document relies on will again without referring to the version of Java script did you relying on and number through the HTML PHG analysis with some of them would like being called that the HQ Velicer's consider through what we call a living standards which in my mind this is not a standard it's a standard place to go and look for ways to now of the day happens to be right but there's an even if none of that would true variational published standard and were frozen there and had version information for itself and all the manifest of things that you bring in it would still not be an appropriate document vocabulary for publishers to use for archiving books because so what is written for this really vocabulary written from web browsers to display rights knowing the right language so we still have XSLT and picture and that's not a bad thing because it means you've got potentially good as we've just seen in the last talk may be good quality an XML of certainly have every reason to believe it's at least as good as it would be if it were in HTML you've got something you can reasonably species modern document
and we have to have some of the things I've mentioned CSS is and what is not good so I should give some concrete examples should follow that up with the with facts and not just made emotional statements if no I love making emotional statements very basic things like pages were processed and 2 pages and pages that have pages matter when you run off the bottom of the page but the whole piece of paper opulent is the scroll bar appears on the side of there is no standard way to do hyphenation today there is currently a way to do this draw offices you can hyphens often web browser it's not enough the basic text graphics so what type the graphics and tables if you fall within a journal footprint then typically in a lot formats so that the the figures and the tables will go to the bottom of the bottom top of the containing column right you just have them in the middle and really strangely if you've got a table that's near the bottom of the column needed to splitting half and half the other half of the next column really not considered good formatting but what does that you can tell it not to break the table it's older than if it's longer than a page you back to hoping papers got scroll bars and other than anything beyond the way and there are people saying when he produced prince in their organizations so you need to say how to do things like how the bombing the printed material but there's no way that say have bond webpage thrust for each agent for example and this summer by the Alliance of metadata is all arguments and to call GCI and we could we could cost of whole conference about distribution about metadata about thousands of other things that are not done on the with with the books with the way with CSS with HTML and yet Italian OK so if this is a secondary distribution source of the span of the blue called that because you can't control you can't control the display from the metadata In case no 1 seems CSS
I brought some but you will it so I'll move on day
1 all these things are about 3 4 people most level OK these are the angle brackets will more precisely is the photograph well it's a computer representation of a scanned photograph all as a matter of time cost of like machine which when printed will create less than and greater than signs and I see people in the audience trying to work out which is the lesson which is the greater than the sum before that brings
explode all hiding because I can't do either in Mississippi and and think it's which side that the group has to be on the top holding the time that is if you're wondering so it does matter XSL-FO has realities supports the 2 0 draft the slope and type features from such as ligatures uh and um CSS has recently gained canning and construct supports a number of other text level things you can have tall less if you want a lesson for historical documents and the corresponding ligatures more usefully for many people you can have discretion ligatures quite important from a number of languages you can have a custom fonts which sounds great for a lot of using 1 heading mathematics more complicated then accounts of money no 1 student and identical time we need to do more work because if you've got a website with 1 equation on you don't want to make the web browser downloadable fonts on the other hand if you got a whole box construct something insane into an equation they would have the funds would you do and had you combine that as a whole this new beginning on what fonts and that we're hoping to get some more as the people involved hello using mask but you the right level this is that the logo for the open web platforms the you wondering and would like to help us make the web not for your users of that meet your needs why should you get involved well you've got to help us make the wide meet your needs right because if we don't know what you need far then that we just got to use telepathy lose the zinc solid all books of Publishers Weekly is a general some of you may have encountered and out the Fabian book industry taking Publishers Association is to hold a whole slew of these organizations I live in Canada so I think the Canadian ones 1st above a certain published this week is a US one and international saying article after article talking about the importance of in-house expertise i within publishers within content providers it's not in Canada something like 80 % of independent publishers of producing books fewer than half of them have in-house expertise the others have a clue what they're doing all the muscle itself the people doing survey that is from know some of the people in this room might be the people to whom they found out and you do have right what the publishers also be doing is hiring the training so that they have people in house you know what they want to ask you for and that's because our idea of what a document is is changing this books I had in my kitchen a very simple you open and then you can go into any page when you're done you close that the world is changing the interactivity right we've got multiple the question of how to split up documents into multiple books which was mentioned this morning we've got a fair and fear is always 1 of the things that drives innovation and businesses 2 things 1 is fear and the other is knowledge the fear comes from 1 of the speakers this morning said if we don't get involved basically I'm paraphrasing if we don't get involved if we only decomposition we don't get involved in the rest of the this digital publishing stuff than you know than we history of tomorrow's wealth is a story ends here knowledge and understanding of part of what you need for innovation and success quite often innovation comes from someone in what the Americans call left field which I understand is a splitting no frequentist full but it is not OK to
so this is this is an image from a book that I and interestingly enough I understand it and put it on the web every and again I do not and intellectual property search will look for some of my images almost stock in site that I run and I found this 1 on a library site and modeling is the Ashmolean all the brings alive library in the UK I think of but then it turned out to be portal from a library Interstate somewhere and eventually got back to the library that said they had a copy of this place but they didn't know where it came from so there was a comment linking you click cases and the Continental great select and now I've got the full bibliographical details all that now you want about record locking them well alright there's probably all they want but I can give them the information but the comments link in fact only works for members of the University of which which the library for have so they live on in the appearance of very what can you do to get involved in w 3 c you can join the interest group it's member only for a number of reasons but 1 of them is so that people can speak freely there are also ways to comment from outside without joining w 3 c if you're a small organization have any money consultant your big organization of lots of money consults in the in other words we want people to come out so that we can hear how we should change and how we can help you change so you join the group and you can comment on the specifications and anyone can do this you don't have to be a member of the library with the the page you don't have to be a member of W 3 C if you look at any of our documents as a section in the beginning cause status and it's so boring that you provide your your brain probably force you to scroll past but in fact it tells you how to submit comments on our processor size this respect can't go forward toward being up the w 3 c recommendation and so all those comments have been addressed it's not a formal vote we go for consensus and if there's anyone who objects then we take the 1st seriously and if necessary we are still working group to go back and resolve the objection the fittest dual feasible it makes it slow but it means we try and get as white but we insist possible for these documents but already mentioned some workshops is likely to be more coming in the area of publishing imprint I'm expecting something about metadata and how that relates to the web and the books in we're working with other organizations have said so this is something we can help you with directly to make sure you have in-house technical knowledge this is the training organizations in this room others out there because that if every decision we make starts a new story than make it a good story and you can participate in CSF In the annotations were the whole slew of standards work as also standards organizations coming and saying come and join us on the other hand everyone in this room at the beginning put their hands up when I asked you to use the way 31 he thinks that the weather is finished we should stop trying to improve the the discussion of used in 1 of the that is this the answer did come at where well I've
had that's typo on slide for 2 science a place for to tools those with that there's also the way is a platform for everyone right and as I said you comments matter and you have a voice W. 3 C. has a published process that we go through in order to be a standards organization anyone cares about you basically have to to publish process but when we do so you can come and you can be right OK thank you at

Subject Area Information technology
Abstract As custodians of the World Wide Web, the Web Consortium (W3C) is both a leader and a follower. We follow because you can't standardise a process or technology until it is in use. We lead, because we guide the new technologies from technical, business, and social perspectives. The Web has already changed publishing, and we are at the brink of even bigger changes. What happens when Web technologies are good enough to replace existing authoring tools? What happens when the Web includes SVG and MathML and can support typography powerful enough to produce printed books? What happens when electronic books and Web sites converge? We're not quite there yet, but W3C is working in this area, working with commercial publishers, with IPDF and other organizations, listening to industry experts and tool-makers, and gently nudging the Web forward all over the world. The difficulty facing publishers today is how to manage when the Web isn't quite ready. The right question to ask is, how do we make the Web ready? In this session Liam Quin from the W3C will describe what W3C is doing in its new Publishing Activity, how it will affect you, and how you can get involved.
