Mobile Web Best Practices checker

As announced in the WWW2006 conference and as part of the Press Release accompanying the publication of the Mobile Web Best Practices as a Candidate Recommendation, work has started on the development of an open-source Best Practices checker.

It is still at alpha release stage and hasn’t been properly reviewed by the Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group; meanwhile, developing it has been a lot of fun!

WWW2006 trip report

I was attending and presenting in the WWW2006 conference last month, and haven’t been able to publish a trip report since then… Bad me!

My last WWW Conference was three years ago and didn’t leave me with great memories, but this year’s edition was certainly much better than any other WWW Conference I’ve been to, and getting close to be as inspiring as XTech was last year – I haven’t been to XTech this year, so I don’t know how good it was, but read some positive reports on the 2006 edition as well.

The spammers have striken again, and we received reports that one of our extremely useful public service was used to work around URL matching techniques for spammers. In other words, a spammer who would have been identified (in email messages, blog comments) as using http://example.net/ as a URI in his spam could workaround it by putting a link to http://our-useful-service.example.org?uri=http://example.net/ instead, and given that the said service more or less entirely preserves the content as is, this allowed indeed to put a link to the incriminated content.
