I don't know what the criteria are for an editor (I'm not a W3C  
member, nor likely to become one in the foreseeable future) but I'm  
happy to co-edit any of the deliverables in the Landscape, Privacy &  
Trust, Interoperability or Distributed Architectures task forces.  
Many of these already have volunteers, though I note that the best  
practice guide for security and privacy on portable social data is  
still editorless, and that sounds like an area I'd like to help out.

Also, I've written to Sarven Capadisli, the user experience guy at  
identi.ca/laconi.ca. He was unaware that this incubator group was  
being set up, but I would expect him to be able to make valuable  
contributions, especially to the user experience task force.

There are some other key people I'd expect to see involved in this  
group but whose names have been notable in their absence from the  
mailing list archives. For example, does Chris Messina know that the  
group is being set up?

Unless people know that the incubator group is being established, it  
will continue to have problems finding editors. Passively waiting for  
them to show up is not enough - we need to get in touch with people  
who we think might be interested and invite them to join this mailing
