Colleagues-
  As is good practice in the W3C, having joined the group let me make a brief intro - lots of info about me is available online - for a quick bio, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Hendler is pretty good (I don't love the picture, but the person who put it there said it captured my personality, so who am I to argue :-)) -- for more of what I do research wise, my regular home page is http://www.cs.rpi.edu/~hendler/
  Relevant to this group, this summer my research group started working on turning data.gov and some other open govt data into RDF and releasing it from http://data-gov.tw.rpi.edu - we host an RSS feed of changes to data.gov, human and machine metadata for each of the  
datasets we can translate, and about 3B triples of RDF data all told.   
We also have some demos and visualizations that show multiple datasets linked together.  We're also working with the UK group doing similar (Nigel Shadbolt's group, although I don't get invited to go see the PM with Tim B-L :-() - on Oct 6 I'll be presenting this work to the US "federal Data Architecture Subcommittee" and probably be presenting it to a US DoD group later in the Fall.  I guess I should also mention that I have a reasonably long history w/the W3C, I cochaired the original Web Ontology WG, was a member of the Coordination Group for the Semantic Web activity for a long time, and am the AC member for Rensselaer Poytechnic Institute (RPI).
  I'm sorry I missed the meeting this morning, didn't know it was happening until after it was over (jetlagged from a short trip to
China)  hope I'll be able to make more of them in the future.
  Looking forward to working with you all
   Jim H.
