Hi all,

In the telecon today, we talked about the marketing proposal [1].

We agreed on Mark's proposal that we need to think about two things  

a) the name for the marketing effort in general, which should be  
accessible, cool, not too technical
b) the name of the underlying spec, which may remain RDF/A.

So far, for (a), we have a few options:
	- metalink / Metal Ink (though domain name issues there)
	- structured HTML / shtml (though unfortunate abbreviation issues  

	We need more suggestions!

For (b), the underlying spec, there are no strong feelings, though we  
discussed the idea of removing the '/' which is causing some headache  
with search engines.

The proposal on the table for (b) is "RDFa"

So, let's think about this some more, and let's discuss over the list  
any new ideas we come up with!
