Hi All,

I work with the Open Knowledge Foundation [1] a UK not
for profit concerned with open data generally and has most
recently been involved with the UK government data
initiative [2] and related projects [3].

I'm working on a project with the University of Edinburgh
IDEALab [4] to present annotateable bibliographic data and
reading lists [5] and have written a framework in python [6]
for storing RDF data with multiple indices (graph traversal,
full text search etc), production rule inferencing, change
histories and provenance as well as a javascript library
supporting views (via the fresnel vocabulary [7]) and
aggregations [8].

My particular interest in the context of this group is in
arriving at something like a consensus for representing
bibliographic data in RDF, minding the strenghts and
weaknesses of FRBR, BIBO, RDA et al (as discussed, for
example, at [9]).

Cheers,
-w
