Hello all,

As I was unable to attend the kickoff teleconference this week I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the group. 

My name is Chris Testa and I am the Director of Outreach Technology for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (http://www.ushmm.org).  I am responsible for the Museum's outreach programs and technology initiatives including our public facing Web and interactive media within the Museum. I participated in last year's workshop on government transparency (http://www.w3.org/2007/06/eGov-dc/summary) and I'm pleased to see this effort continuing. The Museum is new to the W3C (our membership comes into effect on 7/1) but we are excited to be joining this important initiative. 

I'll be chairing the Usage of Web Standards task force so please contact me if you're interested in participating in that aspect of the interest group. I'll be updating the wiki to align toward the TF's mission so please send on any thoughts or suggestions on structure, content, etc. I look forward to working with you all and meeting you during our next teleconference.


Chris Testa
Director of Outreach Technology

We could also do that directly all in the same page.
I'd say that the most advanced wiki at W3C is that of the RIF Working  


We could probably get some ideas from there.

I'm not an expert (yet!) but all the pages have a menu on top with an  
"edit" link, and once they have content also specific sections can be  
made editable.

Only Group participants can edit pages. They need to create an account  
and ask me or Kevin to give them editing rights.
