Hi Janina,

Thanks, let's consider this joint meeting confirmed.

WebApps will have Zakim available for its Shenzhen meeting and we will use the #webpps IRC channel. The PIN (9274# / WAPI) and logistics are included in our agenda page <http://www.w3.org/wiki/Webapps/November2013Meeting#Meeting_Logistics>.

If Daniel and/or Peter (or other CSS people) want to join us, they are certainly welcome although it could be a little "tight".

-Thanks, Art

Thanks, Art. That time will work. Are you able to teleconference in your
room? I would like to have James Craig, and possibly also Rich
Schwerdtfeger in on our conversation, and neither of them will be
physically in Shenzhen.

I'll leave it to James Craig to provide an example of what we propose to
move toward in our User Context module over the next few days. As he
notes in his separate email, this is new thinking for us, just approved
this week. I'm certain, though, James can have something for us in time
for our meeting.

Hi Janina, All,

I added a 30 minute slot on Monday November 11 from 13:30-14:00
(Shenzhen time). Unless I hear otherwise from you, I will assume
this slot is OK and that we will meet in WebApps' meeting room.

To help WebApps prepare for the discussion, I think it would be
helpful if you would please provide some background information. For
example, the URL of the "IndieUI User Context specification", the
"proposal for a new way for user agents to restrict access to
certain groups of media resources".

-Thanks, Art

Dear Colleagues:

The Independent User Interface Working Group (IndieUI) requests approximately
30 minutes of time to meet with CSS and Web Apps (jointly or separately) at
TPAC to acquaint your working groups with a new technical approach in IndieUI

The IndieUI User Context specification is moving away from a reliance on a new
accessor method for key/value pairs, and toward an extensive reliance on Media
Queries (new media features, and matchMedia) as the more appropriate approach
for specifying the features we need. To address privacy and fingerprinting
concerns, we will also be proposing a new way for user agents to restrict
access to certain groups of media features based on user preference. For
example, if a site referenced a media feature related to video captions (via
matchMedia or @media), the user agent may prompt the user to allow access for
the domain. We expect that significant portions of our emerging User Context
specification will overlap with work coordinated by the CSS or Web Apps Working

Therefore, we are requesting time with your group at TPAC to acquaint you with
our approach and to develop an understanding of how best we can move forward.
If possible, we would prefer a morning meeting time in order to more
conveniently teleconference our specification editor from North America.

Thank you for your consideration.

Janina Sajka, IndieUI Chair
