I am pleased to be joining the Board of Directors of the International Digital Publishing Forum (the IDPF). As I suggested in my nomination statement, I will try to focus on three specific goals:
- Developing clear documentation and best practices to ensure that reading systems consistently implement the technical capabilities of EPUB 3 to achieve a common, interoperable experience
- Promoting tools and techniques that allow digital publications to be accessible to readers across a range of cultures and reading abilities
- Broadening both the technical contributors’ and IDPF’s own leadership to include and better serve the international publishing community outside of Europe and North America
It is humbling to be able to join such an accomplished group of contributors, and I hope we are able to serve the members while being receptive to critiques and contributions from the wider community.
