Oops. The purpose of the group was to promote what we're doing whilst  
talking about the benefits of the Semantic Web in a fun environment.  
That is, not to discuss RDF etc. So, I can't change the name, I'd  
have to delete and set up another one. What name would you suggest  
and is it something you think is useful?

Thanks
Paul
