- How can I propose a new site? 1 answer
I'm interesting is discussing and asking questions relating to various international and national standards. Is there currently, or is there any plan to create, a Stack Exchange site for standards?
Standards are conventions, whether formalised or not, for interoperation in trade, technology and other areas of human activity involving multiple people across heterogeneous environments.
Most people have heard of international standards such as the ISO 9001 Quality Assurance standard, or ISO 3166 Country and Subdivision codes. These are examples of standards published by ISO, the International Organisation for Standardisation.
Many other organisations, both public and private, also publish standards, such as the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium), and so forth.
In addition, most countries have national standards organisations, such as Standards Australia which publishes Australian national standards, and so on.
Standards are an important part of life in technology, trade, commerce, finance, and many other areas of human activity.
The purpose of a relevant Stack Exchange community would be for members to ask questions about the existence, meaning, interpretation and implementation of specific standards which can then be answered by experts on those standards.
I believe this would be an extremely useful resource and lends itself well to the Stack Exchange community-rated question and answer format.
