comment Are there efforts to build a collaboratively edited HTML/JS/DOM reference?
@mario I couldn't agree more! SelfHTML is the single greatest HTML resource there is. They could have really made a difference with a complete english translation

The MDC docs look really nice, hadn't seen se HTML and CSS refs yet! Also they are increasingly losing the Mozilla focus which is great.

Most of the potential problems you mention are common among all high-level occupations; much will depend on finding a good employer

comment Would you make your website's source code public?
@Anon yeah, but Apache has been heavily tested and audited by hundreds of people for several years. The OP's web site probably has not.

comment Is software innovation still primarily North American and European? Why, and for how much longer?
Agreed. One important additional point being "Money to actually build and develop the technology the innovation runs on" - without the economies to buy the stuff, there would be no chip factories... and I'm fairly sure too that things will shift massively in the decades to come.
