OK... how about 3:30pm Boston time (aka ET) Weds and/or Fri next week?

Wednesday will be sort of a warm-up; everybody try find me
and/or Henry in the #grddl-wg channel
sometime before 3:30pET Weds and try to chat with us about the
agenda: whether you can make the 3:30pET time on Wed and/or Fri,
what you'd like to discuss, etc.

If you can't reach me in IRC, try the phone. My number
is in this mail message:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-semweb-cg/2005Oct/0028.html

On Thursday, Henry and I will try to get out a real live
teleconference agenda for a teleconference Friday, either
at 3:30pET or at some other negotiated time.

(Henry, In DAWG I did something like this:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-dawg/2005OctDec/att-0001/_ag4Oct.html
maybe that's overkill, but sometimes it was fun. Oh... and see

p.s. confessions of an RDF calendar geek...

I spent some time with iCal, trying to visualize all the constraints
I've heard so far. Here's a screenshot:
  http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/grddl-wg/grddl-wg-times.png
and the calendar data:
 http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/grddl-wg/telcon-bad.ics
 http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/grddl-wg/telcon-good.ics

The screenshot includes my (otherwise unpublished)
regular teleconference appointments. (It's in Chicago time
because that's where I work and hCalendar can't express timezones
for recurring events, so my calendar data has recurring events
in floating time.)

I thought about making separate RDF files to capture what each
person said in their intro, mixing in some rules and doing
some SPARQL query on the results, but I think I'm going to leave
that as homework or something. :-)

In the SPARQL WG (DAWG), I had a Makefile set up so that cwm
would compute the local time for each WG member based on coordinates
from their intro; see, for example,

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-dawg/2005JulSep/0162
      [      tlt:localTime  (
            "Amsterdam"
            "Tue 4:30 PM"  ),
                     (
            "Brussels"
            "Tue 4:30 PM"  ),
                     (
            "Chicago"
            "Tue 9:30 AM"  ),
...
