Kevin,

Given that we only have one day for this, let's keep it simple. Those are 
substantive questions that need some additional time to consider.

I'd keep talking points limited to the key issues issues identified in the 
egov IG document: Improving Access to Government through Better Use of the 
Web http://www.w3.org/2007/eGov/IG/Group/docs/note#issues. Of course 
include a link.

I'd also refer to what Tim Berners-Lee said in the National Dialogue last 
month. http://www.thenationaldialogue.org/ideas/linked-open-data

It would be good to at least have one reply up.  As I understand it, there 
will be a week of voting that ends next week. It might be an opportunity 
to get some additional feedback on the work of this group.

It seems that the administration will have a one-week frenzy on technology 
ideas every other month. :-) so this might not be our last opportunity.
