I wrote about 16 months ago how my year-long project to launch a W3C Working Group (starting in this protected post) was done and the group was underway. Today, the group published the first draft of its technical specification. Man, that took a long time.
Getting from First Public Working Draft to Recommendation will also take a long time, if we can even do it, but this is still a nice milestone to have reached. (And Recommendation isn't even the end of the game, but it's the biggest single milestone in the entire process.)
(meanwhile, no particular milestones or change in my family situation. i'll probably post something vague and cryptic here when/if something changes.)
