Hi everyone,

Several on the call reiterated that we're now a fully fledged working group having gone through the 'start up phase'.  We have an ambitious list of Deliverables yet we're all volunteers.  

What should give us all comfort is that many people around the world are *actively* looking for guidance on best practices, step-by-step info, shared experiences on deployments, and vocabulary guidance that can jump start government open data projects.    Given the increasing profile of Open Government initiatives globally, our audience is growing monthly.  People are very actively looking for authoritative guidance and recommendations from the W3C.  

To that end, please check out the Community Directory app which is a first cut of an "address book on steroids."  The directory is a place where anyone doing work in Government Linked Data (1-5 star LOD) can enter their contact details & share a bit about their organization & any deployments they've worked on.

Your username is w3cgld-member
pswd is "until-which-problem" (without quotes).

You can sign in at: http://directory.3roundstones.net/

If you have any questions, please email GLD Chairs <team-gld-chairs@w3.org>.  

If the user interface is awkward for you to create entries, please let me know asap.  

Entering information in the directory in not intended to take you more than 10-30 minutes, depending upon how much information you add.
