There was a paper from identi.ca at the workshop, but I don't they came. 
They should have been notified. [1]

Re Chris Messina, we have notified (or at  least tried to) notify him and 
others [2]. Perhaps they are not aware we are  in charter stage? Their

Agreed. But I think the operative question is whether all 
deliverables is 1) possible and 2) useful and how to get the people who 
want to work on this from a standards-body angle in the room for a year 
for exploration (XG) purposes. I believe the W3C is complementary to the 
various work done with Diso, OpenSocial, OpenWeb, etc.
