Hi all

Would just like to make everyone aware of the notice on the front page 
of http://www.w3c.org that Gannon Dick (rustprivacy.org) drew my 
attention to:

"W3C invites WWW2010 <http://www2010.org/> conference participants to 
attend two W3C track <http://www.w3.org/2010/04/w3c-track.html> sessions 
on April 29 and 30 in Raleigh, North Carolina (USA). Responding to the 
Web community's demand for open discussion on the future of HTML5 and 
Linked Data, W3C organizes this year an HTML5 camp and a Linked Open 
Data camp. Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director, will lead off the Linked Open 
Data camp and participate in discussions on topics such as open data 
deployment in government and managing privacy as the Web of data grows. 
At the HTML5 camp on April 30, W3C staff will lead discussions on what 
developers can expect today and in the near future from the open Web 
platform that is HTML5. W3C's Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Jaffe and 
several other W3C staff will participate in and lead events at WWW2010 
and other co-located meetings. Read the media advisory 
<http://www.w3.org/2010/04/w3ctrack-pr.html> for more information."

I've wasn't aware of it, but that doesn't mean anything :) Just 
wondering if we were aware of it as a group (as it deals with open data 
deployment in government) - it seems to be very very salient given where 
group activities are at, at the moment. Its also interesting to note the 
inclusion of managing privacy - something I wasn't aware that the W3C 
was involved with, and a topic I know if of interest to many in the IG.

This might well be worth discussing at the next telecon? Would be great 
to get more info on it, and see if and how we could be involved as a group.

Cheers

Chris
