Hi Miquel, et al. 

I applaud your initiative.
There´s widespread agreement that we need to move on to the
"real" work. 

Thank you for the invitation to
moderate the meeting. Of course I am happy to serve the group in any
way I can, however, I´m concerned that I do not have sufficient
familiarity with the W3C codes and procedures. 

Perhaps I
can conduct a pre-conference briefing with (and clarify the guidelines).
In addition, I want to nominate the workshop co-chair, Dominique, to
moderate or co-moderate this meeting. We will sort this out

While I have expressed my views on the topics up
for discussion on/to the list, I am extremely comfortable with putting the
decisions that need to be made to a vote to the group, IF (as long
as) the meeting is attended by a broad range of voices/representatives of
the social networking ecosystem. 

Given that the dates
proposed (March 2 or 4) are 2 weeks out, I will do my best and it is
incumbent upon all of us on this list, to make sure that there is
broad participation of informed people and stakeholders on that
call. The best way, I feel, to get this participation is for those
who are on the list to personally invite your associates.
