Hi all,

I'm so happy and proud to see the results of our work. It was great to be
part of this team!

I remember our first Friday meetings when, most of the times, I was  just
listening because I was still learning how to participate on a W3C working
group. After a while, I started to become "less shy" and at the end I was
really feeling part of the team. And this is a great feeling! Being able to
contribute with something that can help organizations all around the world
it is really priceless. Now, I have to confess that I am addicted to this
and I'd like to contribute with other working groups as well.

Thank you all for our meetings and discussions! I learned so much with
them.  A special thanks to Annette, Antoine, Eric Stephan, Laufer, Makx and

Thanks to all W3C team for the support! A special thanks to Phil for all
your help and patience! He had the challenge to deal with some people like
me (without W3C working group experience) :)  Also a big thank you to our
chairs! You were really amazing bringing the consensus at difficult moments
and helping us to organize our ideas!

Thank you so much to Carol and Newton! It was great working with you two!
We learned a lot together and I hope that we have other opportunities to
repeat this successful partnership!

I really like the idea of proposing a Community Group. I think that we can
go further on some ongoing discussions, but we can also identify new
challenges about Data on the Web. Let's continue the data on the Web
Revolution [1]!
