I think Chris and Daniel have said it all, but I'm going to stick in  
my two penn'orth. The main task of the organisers of the conference  
is to organise the conference. Bluntly speaking, although I  
personally think the publication of SW data is important (and spent a  
great deal of my own time on it for ESWC07), it's a side issue, and  
there are other, timely things that we need(ed) to spend our time on.

There was a small team doing the local organisation and they were  
working pretty damn hard last week to handle a number of issues --  
please note I'm not talking about myself here, but the people  
managing the day to day running of the event, who also happened to be  
responsible for the website. So yes it may be "just about adding a  
line to some HTML", but occasionally there just isn't enough resource  
to even get simple things done immediately. There are only 24 hours  
in the day, and it's good to sleep for some of them :-).

The data set has been produced -- Chris and his team did a great job  
this year -- and ultimately, we /will/ have things linked up.
