Hi,

over the next week I'm going to create a range of wiki pages for us to 
collect feedback and input to form submissions to the other working 
groups listed on the Related Standards[1] page.  The Augmented Web 
provides a unique perspective and I think it's important that we collate 
some combined feedback/input for each of these groups to make sure 
they're aware of our goals and requirements.

As part of this I think it's important that we present as an organised 
and professional group.  Our group is the only one that has such a large 
number of Chairs.  No offense to the existing Chairs but this was setup 
in a very ad-hoc way and without any group discussion.  In order to 
simplify this structure I have updated this so I am the current Chair. 
And as you have seen recently I am committed to working to develop this 
group.  If you think this action is unfair or invalid in any way please 
let me know.  I'm more than happy to either discuss this in public on 
this list or feel free to email me directly in private.  My goal here is 
simply to bring our group structure in line with the vast majority of 
other W3C Community Groups.

I'd also encourage you to checkout the Demo and Projects page[2] if you 
haven't already as I've added a few more examples.  They're great for 
getting people thinking about what will really be possible with the 
Augmented Web.

And I'd also encourage you to share any thoughts you have about the 
topics raised on the Social Implications page[3] and contribute content 
to their wiki pages too.

And last but not least, please share a link to this group via twitter, 
facebook, g+ and linkedin so we can grow our community.  The Augmented 
Web is evolving quickly and the more people involved in this group and 
our discussions the better our ability to shape this process.
