Thanks to everyone who came along to the Linked Data Gathering in
Madrid on Monday, after the LDOW2009 workshop, and for making it such
a fun evening :) A particularly big thanks to Oscar Corcho from UPM
for significant efforts in finding the venue and translating on some
of the crucial practical aspects of the evening. If you see this man
[1] around the conference, show him your appreciation!

I've listed some names at [2] that I can remember of people who gave
lightning talks on Monday night - if you did, please add yourself to
the list and write a lightning summary of your talk, for the record.

Last of all, The Guardian (our beer sponsors from Monday) have offered
to fast-track requests for API keys for their Open Platform for Linked
Data geeks (currently restricted access). If you'd like a key then
please just sign up at [3] and forward your confirmation email to Matt
McAlister (Matt dot McAlister at guardian dot co dot uk) mentioning
Linked Data.

Cheers,

Tom.
