Hi,

I'm sorry but I most probably won't make it to this week's call.
I'm moving to a new office this week and don't expect to be online
again in time.

WRT my action items:
I've created a bunch of logo drafts at [1]. As discussed at the 
F2F, I tried to experiment towards something simple given that 
a pure graphical symbol would either be hard to scale or tricky
to agree on, and that we'd like to combine it with sub-logos 
like the RDF one. (Nevertheless, we could ask the community for
ideas perhaps, maybe there is something nice that doesn't use 
the old node-and-arc visualization.) 

>From the available ideas, I'd currently tend towards something in 
the direction of the right variation in draft 4). It is not as 
symmetric as the other ones, but "communicates" the web/semweb 
better, e.g. the "S" part could be seen as some bi-directional
(D)ata-out/(D)ata-in thingy, the "W" part is actually built from
a D(ata) element on top of a B(ase) etc. It also follows the W3C
logo pattern a little to use a passive visual effect (as in the 
"C"). It could work as a plain symbol/logo if the SW letters 
aren't identified at the first glance. However, these are just
early results of what we brainstormed in Stavanger ("less is more"
etc.).

Unfortunately, no updates on my other tasks yet:
 - case study
 - community project


Cheers so far,
Ben
