Hi all

Who Am I! ... a nice catch indeed, I was not aware of it either, but it's
now integrated in LOV so that no one can miss it any more :)
http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/details/vocabulary_wai.html

@Luis : the list of creators/contributors is not complete, simply added
those I could find at Dog Food People http://data.semanticweb.org/person/
I need URIs to add the other ones, we can forge some in LOV namespace, but
if they had "preferredURI" (see other thread ...) it would be better. Can
you provide some?

Regards

Bernard
