The W3C is the standards body for the world-wide web. Recently, they approved a standard for DRM, an action which seemed to me to be fundamentally against the open principles on which the web was formed. Bryan Lunduke
decided to join the W3C to try an shake things up a bit there - the cost of membership is $2500. So I donated £20 to help out a little bit (during his 24-hour youtube telethon). Go for it, Bryan!
