Hi all,
Thanks to all 17 of you who entered details in the Community Directory.  You just have click on the "Directory" button on the top of the vertical nav bar to get started, "Create new Organization" and then "Add project or deployment" (look on right hand side).  Any questions, please ping me.  Login details below in prev msg.

Congrats to the Spaniards who lead in figuring out the UI (which is admittedly far from perfect).  They entered 6 organizations based in Spain with 10 deployments, followed by 2 US based organizations with 2 deployments.  I suspect DERI has done a project or two ;-)

To those of you haven't entered, please do so.  Those who did, please double check your details (I did a bit of code refactoring).  I'm going to be demo'ing this at the Open Government Data Conference in Warsaw next week.  It would be nice to have a few more members listed.  

NB: In due course, we'll open it more broadly, but only after WG 'blesses' it & we know we have some refactoring yet to do.

Attached is a screenshot of the stats.  It would be nice to see some EU deployments which we know are many.

Have a great weekend all.

> 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.

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