comment Does W3C membership help future career?
@Peter - The important word in the phrase "Invited Expert" is invited. Sure, you can ask, but that doesn't mean they'll extend an invitation.

Like so much else in life, the answer may be the Dunning–Kruger effect.

comment How can I make myself more attractive to software publishers?
In general (and in my experience), software publishers redistribute software written by independents. Maybe software house instead? Yes, it's also got a {cite}, but it's a little more general, which I think would be a good thing here.

They're wrong. It's that simple.

comment Does W3C membership help future career?
@Peter - The FAQ says: Some individuals who are not employed by a W3C Member may participate as an "invited expert" but in the general case, such participation is subject to approval by the group Chair and Team contact. I've looked through it (before today, even!) and I can't find anywhere that it says anything other than "they invite you."
