danbri: See the main 21C3 site ("The Usual Suspects") for more info and updates to schedule. Dates: Dec 27-29, Berlin, Germany.
danbri: I'm thinking of going, was wondering if any SWIG folks might be there.
danbri: " The 21st Chaos Communication Congress (21C3) is a three-day conference on technology, society and utopia. The Congress offers lectures and workshops on a multitude of topics including (but not limited to) information technology, IT-security, internet, cryptography and generally a critical-creative attitude towards technology and the discussion about the effects of technological advances on society."
 
jhendler: stolen from Hitchhiker's guide to some degree, but not horrid.
danbri: Or this? (from Tim Finin and co.)
danbri: I recall the UMBC site tricking me, some time ago, and Tim letting me down gently... I thought 'Oh, cool KIF-based content management thingie!'... but it was just a (pre-OWL) joke.
 
Minor syntax issues (underscores/encoding, ":-", pathchars) [item G]
 
Hyphen-minus in localnames: use the questionnaire? [item F, from sbp]
DanC: the public account form seems to be a prerequisite
DanC: ... to the Syntax of QNames in N3 questionnaire
sbp: Which closes on "23:59, Boston time on 2004-12-31".
 
Implementation/use feedback for CWM 1.0 [item E, from sbp]
sbp: I've found it to be exceptionally solid so far, though I've been doing mainly syntax testing and none of the difficult rules cases on which CWM's been known to trip up in the past.
 
danbri: Hmm it lacks list blurb. Similar setup to public-esw was with swad-europe, except no project site yet. It's in the area of quality labelling and trust using RDF descriptions, and migrating from and generalising PICS technology.
