Issue 273

This week is TPAC week. I should have been meeting in person with W3C members and the CSS Working Group, we are instead all virtual. In some of my recent talks people have enjoyed the section about participating in the web platform, so I wanted to mention again the Web Platform Contribution Guide. It explains all of the different ways you can get involved. You don't need to be a W3C or working group member to do so!

Along the same lines, some of the breakout sessions at TPAC will be open to the public. The sessions haven't been posted yet, but it's a great chance to look into the work of the W3C while we are having the meeting in a way that is accessible to everyone.
