The Web Standards Project (WaSP), has announced that its closing its doors after 15 years of helping to improve the code of online tools and pushing to ensure Web browser creators, like NetScape and Microsoft, supported the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards.
The founders have said that the dream of having an accessible Internet is largely a reality now, and have therefore decided that the presence of such a watch dog organization like WaSP is no longer required. However, this isn’t to say that there isn’t still room for improvement. Most of the dedicated and passionate members and supporters of WaSP are still working in the realm of Web standards, at accessibility improvement companies such as A List Apart, Web Standards Sherpa, HTML5 Doctor, and many more.
While WaSP may no longer be fighting for accessibility as one unified organization, their past success speaks for itself.
