Founded in 1994, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been primarily concerned with “…developing protocols and guidelines that ensure long-term growth for the Web.” To do so, they draw on a set of international professionals and experts throughout the field of computer science and related fields. The W3C is led by Tim Berners-Lee, who directs the project and who was also responsible for inventing the World Wide Web. First-time visitors should take a look through the “New Visitors” area, which includes a basic overview of where to find certain materials, such as their technical reports and how to sign up for their mailing lists. Another way to look over some of their materials is by browsing their “A to Z” section on the homepage, which covers everything from accessibility to XML encryption.
