The OHSWG has by now moved from specifications to running code. This is an important step, not only because this is the only way of maturing the specifications, but also because it strengthens the credibility of the OHSWG. Showing that the ideas expressed by the OHSWG can be implemented is however not enough, at least not if we desire a wider audience than ourselves. Concomitantly the XLink standard has begun to take shape, metadata on the Web seems to be on the rise, and interconnectedness is sharply rising with various small devices (such as WAP phones and PDAs) gaining access to the Internet. We are living in interesting times. Based on the experiences of developing the Arakne Environment, the author attempts to point out some worthwhile directions for future work within the OHSWG.
