Léonie Watson, Director at TetraLogical, has been elected to the first Board of Directors of the W3C.
Until now the W3C has existed as an agreement between four academic institutions, MIT, ERCIM, Keio, and Beihang. It is now transforming into a single non-profit organisation that will seek 501 (C)(3) status.
The Board will consist of 11 voting members - four for representatives from MIT, ERCIM, Keio, and Beihang, and seven that were elected by members of the Consortium:
- Robin Berjon, The New York Times
- Koichi Moriyama, NTT DOCOMO
- Mark Nottingham, Cloudflare
- David Singer, Apple
- Eric Siow, Intel
- Léonie Watson, TetraLogical
- Hongru Zhu, Alibaba Group
As founding Director, Tim Berners-Lee will hold an honorary seat on the Board.
