This is/was fine. Can data.gov.* be placed at the beginning of the agenda, so that I can take part?

If the timeframe you have in mind for this is about a month, I think I am interested. There are a few reasons I'm not so sure:

* I'm starting a new job at a new place on the 20th of July, so it's (even more) difficult to be certain about my availability. I think it will be fine, though. I'll also be on leave in the last half of August.

* The paper by TimBL [1] seems to have covered a lot of the same ground. Perhaps the memo needs to be re-focussed. This might chew up some time.

* My knowledge of RDF is not so deep.

Are these reservations flimsy?
