Seems I missed this the first time around.  Nice of the W3C to clean out the backlog once in a while :o)

The sorts of projects you describe are important, and actually my first love.
you will like:

[1] Work-Life Balance : http://www.rustprivacy.org/2012/toward/  This includes NY County.  This gets at the problem of relatively more dangerous travel time at twilight.
[2] Weather can be integrated, but is most useful as a forecast.  This works better for multi-day events. http://www.rustprivacy.org/2012/weather/  This is my [redacted]th High School Reunion, happening this week.  The privacy policy is the Gatun Lake Model http://www.rustprivacy.org/2012/weather/privacy-policy.pdf This would also be a good model for Legislation morphing into Law.

Please have a look.

> to hear everybody's voice and opinion on every single issue

There is the possibility that those of us who do not weigh in on every
issue are mute because we don't have a strong position on every issue. I,
for example, am most concerned with and speak up about issues associated
with securely surfacing sensitive/private citizen data to individual
citizens, data that is currently rarely web-accessible at all, let alone
5-star semantic-enabled data. Yet most of the discussions recently have
been heavy on GLD and semantic web standards. Should I leave the group and
have the group lose a "surface the hidden data" champion just because our
group focus has been mostly public GLD oriented recently?
