   Web Forms: we'll probably publish a snapshot of this spec as a
   call-for-comments shortly.

   Web Apps: I'll be going through the ideas given so far on this and
   integrating them into a draft proposal. Once this has reached a semi-
   stable stage, we'll do a call-for-comments and start addressing
   specific concerns.

   Web Controls: This probably won't be worked on until Web Apps has
   reached a stage similar to Web Forms today.

   Other specs: no work has yet been considered.

Not really sure what you mean by what technologies will be involved. The
above three specs are basically HTML (or XHTML), DOM and CSS -based, with
some use of XML and HTTP and other core technologies as appropriate.
