they refuse to mention ripple, as usual, even though they have been central in developing the W3 standards

after all ripple has done and will do to benefit bitcoin and all altcoins, and they still get hated on

Is it possible that Ripple doesn't want to be mentioned? They do seem to play it pretty close to the vest, perhaps to keep XRP stable as the FIs and payment partners position themselves?

Ripple has never tried to interfere with Bitcoin or make money from Bitcoin users. What is there to hate? It's so freaking annoying.

Marc Hochstein is the new managing editor at CoinDesk. He's really cool and not "anti-Ripple." I'm hopeful that CoinDesk will see a BIG improvement.

The Recommendations from the Working Group will increase some areas of interoperability between payer and payee systems

Once included in the final release, the payment standards will become part of the underlying protocol of the internet itself. 



Wonder if ILP is a compliment to the underlying protocol?

Pretty much sums it up: https://w3c.github.io/payment-request/

Finally, I would be amiss if I didn’t mention the HTTP API recommendation that is moving rapidly toward publication. It’s hard to truly grasp the value of this API now, but when I consider it alongside the work I am involved in with Interledger, and the data I see predicting how autonomous payments from machine to machine will explode in an IoT world, it’s quite possible that standardizing autonomous Web payments this early may be one of the smartest things we could ever do.
