"It has been a great start, but this is [only] the beginning of the effort. It is not a finished product," said Michael Champion, who is the Microsoft senior program manager for Microsoft Open Technologies subsidiary. Champion is also a representative to the W3C advisory committee and an elected member of the W3C advisory board. Microsoft itself has donated material on over 3,200 topics to the project, taken from its own MSDN (Microsoft Software Developer Network).
Champion likened the effort to Wikipedia, where "the entire community can help out," he said, noting that, in particular, a lot of the visitors have asked about when the site's content would be translated into other languages, which would be a task uniquely suited for global volunteers.
Overall, Champion appreciates how the project brings together all of the major browser developers in the Web application space. "A broad collaboration shows that we all have a shared commitment an interoperable platform," he said.
