As a W3C member, mobiLead will join the NFC Working Group in support of W3C's goal to provide a standard API for Web Applications to access NFC
mobiLead, provider of near field communication (NFC) and QR Code information tag generation and management, has announced that it has joined the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), an international community that develops open Web standards.
The W3C's mission is to lead the World Wide Web (WWW) to its full potential by developing protocols and guidelines that ensure the long term growth of the web. As a W3C member, mobiLead will join the NFC Working Group in support of W3C's goal to provide a standard API for Web Applications to access NFC.
'We are excited to have mobiLead on board as W3C member,' said Dave Raggett, NFC Working Group Staff Contact at W3C.
Prior to founding mobiLead, Laurent Tonnelier, CEO of mobiLead, was involved in several W3C initiatives including XML, VoiceXML, Mobile Web, and Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) – a key element of HTML5.
'We believe that information tags are poised to become the ubiquitous low cost links between physical consumer goods and the Mobile Internet,' said Tonnelier. 'We are very pleased to be a part of the W3C community, and we look forward to encouraging and assisting in developing the Web of Things standards.'
