A few good men are running for the W3C TAG (Technical Architecture Group - http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/ ) :
Mr +Anne van Kesteren, Mr +Alex Russell, Mr +Yehuda Katz, and Mr +Marcos Caceres. What's that you ask?

This group, chaired by Tim Berners-Lee, is "responsible for sort of envisioning the architecture of the Web itself and championing it". Read all of 
http://briankardell.wordpress.com/2012/12/07/the-new-gang-of-four/ to get a feel for whats up here. But essentially, much of the priorities that are important for web apps and things that drive us developers crazy are not always shared by standards groups. These four fellas feel developer pain well and can successfully engage in the standards arena to prioritize what's most important.

If your company is a member of the W3C ( http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Member/List ), contact your AC rep and tell them why they should vote for these candidates. For that, read Brian's post above , Yehuda's: http://yehudakatz.com/2012/12/07/im-running-to-reform-the-w3cs-tag/ or Alex's: http://infrequently.org/2012/12/reforming-the-w3c-tag/

Love this project by +Cesar Kuriyama called +1 Second Everyday — it's very simple, but very powerful. The app itself reminds me a lot of the Everyday.app that I use to take a photo of myself everyday, but the addition of time adds a really interesting dimension and potential for memory, recollection, and narrative that a single frame just doesn't support.

For a pledge as little as $1, you'll get you the iOS App when its released next month:
