W3C Invites Implementations of Web Annotation Protocol

July 12th, 2016

The Web Annotation Working Group invites implementation of the Candidate Recommendation of Web Annotation Protocol. Annotations are typically used to convey information about a resource or associations between resources. Simple examples include a comment or tag on a single web page or image, or a blog post about a news article. The Web Annotation Protocol describes the transport mechanisms for creating and managing annotations in a method that is consistent with the Web Architecture and REST best practices.
