I'm a co-chair of the OWL working group, and as Sandro mentioned,  
help set up the MediaWiki instance that we've using. I've been a Wiki  
user and proponent for since about 2000, first hacking a wiki at my  
previous employer so that extensions could be defined in the wiki  
itself, and then doing the necessary social engineering to bootstrap  
Wikis in several projects I've been involved in. I'm totally excited  
that the whole OWL WG site is a wiki, from the public facing page[1]  
down.

Things I want to bring to our Wiki are Semantic MediaWiki use in  
order, e.g., to author test cases in the Wiki, and then SPARQL them  
out to be run, and editing of the specification documents in the Wiki  
directly, publishing them in final form by way of a script that  
generates the HTML from the Wiki page. Also looking forward to giving  
the theoreticians in the group the ability to author latex directly  
in the Wiki via the math extensions.

Nicest surprise in all this was finding out that there are other Wiki  
fanatics (Sando late night Wiki hacking tickles me :) at the W3C.

Alan Ruttenberg
