We'll do our first "invited telecon" on fixing up the vCard FOAF
mismatch on Wednesday at 2:00 UTC. While several important people
can't make it (DanBri and Renato), I'll be seeing Renato in person a
few days afterwards, so it's important we develop a list of things we
want fixed and open questions that need an answer for vCard in RDF.
Then, hopefully in a later "guest" telecon, we can sort out the issues
of mapping vCard to the latest IETF vCard/Portable Contacts work, and
the future of FOAF. In particular, getting feedback from the use of
vCard/RDF in the wilde from Peter Mika is of importance, as well as
someone (Ivan?) who has an idea for the process for merging the vCard
ontology/VCard in RDF namespaces. Lastly, Libby, if you have any
preferences or questions for for how vCard should evolve with FOAF,
now would be a good time to start brainstorming.

Doing as much of this brainstorming as possible over the list-serv
beforehand is always a good thing.

Here's the telecon details:
