Future Friendly

Future Friendly is a manifesto / call to arms for making sure that our strategies for technology, design, and content will work fine on today’s and on the next-gen devices.

While we can’t know exactly what the future will bring, we can:

  1. Acknowledge and embrace unpredictability.
  2. Think and behave in a future-friendly way.
  3. Help others do the same.

As Jeremy Keith put it:

Instead of focusing on whatever this season’s model happens to be, we should be crafting our services in a robust way, striving for universal access tomorrow as well as today.

Be sure to read the posts by Josh, LukeW on Future Friendly and Mobilewood (the meet-up that sparked FF) too.

Acid3 2011 Update

Reality Check:

Today, Håkon Wium Lie and I — Ian Hickson — are announcing that we have updated the Acid3 test by commenting out the parts of the test that might get changed in the specs.

We hope this will allow the specs to change in whatever way is best for the Web, rather than constraining the changes to only be things that happened to fit what Acid3 tested!
