Fair request, I agree SWEO should have brought this up here sooner.

I'm not sure SWEO's charter explicitly mentions any relationship with
W3C marketing, but clearly it does have some interface role there.
Coordination with this Interest Group is definitely on the list.

For what it's worth, the SWEO mailing list archives and meeting
minutes are public:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-sweo-ig
http://esw.w3.org/topic/SweoIG/Meetings

(I'm pretty sure all the members of SWEO follow *this* list, it's
still probably the best place to raise issues regarding education and
outreach).

The recent changes page (and feed) on the ESW Wiki is also a pretty
good indicator of activity:

Personally I like the cube, and would far rather have this logo on my
laptop than the manufacturer's. Not too keen on the buttons or text
though, I'm afraid.

The usage restrictions do currently seem inappropriate. But in defence
of the W3C folks, they were under pressure from at least two groups to
get *something* out, and it is easier to loosen restrictions than
tighten them.

As I understand the intention, and seems sensible to me, the cube is
more of a blanket marker, a different role to the 'blue atoms' RDF
icon, which still seems ideal for indicating RDF data availability. I
reckon the FOAF logo is here to stay too :-)

Cheers,
Danny.
