Hi all,

I'm sure this will come as no suprise, even if I'm just now getting 
around to it ;)

It is with much regret that inform you of my resignation from the DAWG. 
Unfortunately, Tucana is no longer operating in it's old capacity (that 
was intentionally vague) and I can no longer perform any DAWG work on 
WG's behalf. I am now back in Australia with my family, and while I've 
found work, it's not in the semweb field.

I've really enjoyed working with you all, the telecons are always fun, 
and I see a bright future for this work. Hopefully wherever I land will 
have a home for semweb work, and I can continue to work in this field.

I wish you all the best in the upcoming language and protocol 
candidates, I hope they are as well received as they deserve to be. 
Rest assured, I can't let 3.5 years of semweb work go down without a 
fight, so no doubt, some of you will be hassled by me in the future.

You'll be pleased to know that Kowari has kicked on, and will 
potentially be better than ever, though development will no doubt slow 
down. Good news is some of Tucana's ex-customers are interested in its 
future well-being, and it'll also mean that we'll be able to do some 
things we've wanted to for some time without any commercial pressures 
on us.

It's been fun...

Tom Adams
