Hi all,

If that is of interest, I'd be happy to say a few word about our "World
Wide Semantic Web" (@wwsemweb) initiative:
http://worldwidesemanticweb.wordpress.com/
We do some work around downscaling, voice interfaces and education to make
Semantic Web technologies usable in underprivileged part of the world.

Regards,
Christophe
