News

The W3C published their recommendation for Encrypted Media Extensions. Implementing EME requires browser implementers to include a proprietary component into their browsers. This is what is known in “the lingo” as <blink>breaking the freaking open web</blink>. As a result of this recommendation being published, the EFF has now resigned from the W3C. This comes after the EFF filed the first ever formal appeal against this recommendation.

The W3C was supposed to be about consensus and compromise. Technically, 58% is a majority, but historically all measures have been passed with more full consensus. In reality, this is what it looks like when media conglomerates force a big lock onto a formally open system so they can sell you more animated videos.

CoffeeScript 2 was announced this week to mixed fanfare. Everyone is impressed by an almost-dead project getting picked up and a major version released, a big win for Open Source. The ongoing debate between straight ES6 and pre-processors continues on the orange site, with many developers impressed by the new offerings, but not enough to move from ES6. This could be a big boon for the Ember community, where CoffeeScript has a much higher adoption rate. CoffeeScript helped move the needle on JavaScript getting better. I’m happy it’s moving forward - maybe it can continue the trend.
