welcome to the Semantic Web South-West mailing list
- Hi! You're subscribed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Just a quick message to launch the list. Currently there are three people
subscribed; Dan, Libby, Andy. We should also send "hello, who I am"
messages, if only pointer to a home page or work place, as that's the
precedent I'd like to establish for new members of the list.
As described in http://groups.yahoo.com/group/semanticweb-southwest the
list is public and open to all interested parties; the only constraint is
that list members are expected to introduce themselves.
Anything to do with RDF, Semantic Web and XML is in scope for this list;
I also encourage people to use the list for ad-hoc or planned in advance
face-to-face meetings, such as the occasional ILRT / HP Labs lunch
discussions, pub chats or announcements of more formal seminars and
workshops that relate to Semantic Web technology. Think of this list as an
informal local sub-group of the W3C RDF/SW Interest Group (maybe in
time there'll be others for other areas).
One immediate topic of local (and of course international!) interest is
RDF query; at the discussion we had a couple of weeks ago about RDF query
I suggested we use the semanticweb-southwest list as a public space for
airing some of our ideas on this. The list is now open for business for
that and other purposes: I'll approve any membership requests that are
submitted, but if you do pass on details of this list, please also
encourage folk to send an introductory message. I'll send round my notes
from that meeting in a follow-on mail shortly.
