During TPAC, Lachlan caught up with Ian Hickson, editor of the HTML 5 specification. Hixie discusses the tools he uses to gather and respond to feedback, which is fundamental to the open development of the standard. Hixie clarifies the whole "when will it be ready?!" issue and gives us some details about what part of the spec he is working on now.
