RDB2RDF finally reached REC status, congrats to everyone involved.

For those that are unaware, this is a great way to use a classic relational
database back end with linked data, giving 3 great flavours of data storage

- flat files
- nosql triple or quad stores with SPARQL
- mapped relational databases

Thank you very much, everyone involved! A big kudos to the wonderful
Editors of R2RML and DM, my co-chair and all the WG members, early ones and
the ones who pulled through to the very end!

Now, the real work starts: the success of a standard is, IMHO, measured by
the uptake. We have now a stable proposal on the table and need to convince
industry players and end-users alike that it is worth investing in this
piece of infrastructure.

Link long and prosper!

Cheers,
           Michael
