This is really sweet! Great to see that site come back to live. Wish I 
could've been in China ... if you folks have any trip-reports to share, 
do post them here.

Now, on to the feature requests!

  * http://semanticweb.org/wiki/Events ... can we get iCal feeds?
  * OpenID would be lovely too. Any chance of that?

Re OpenID, I generated a FOAF Group description from the OpenIDs of 
everyone who has edited wiki.foaf-project.org (hmm I should crontab it). 
It is a nice way of building a grassroots list of the OpenIDs of people 
active in the RDF/SWIG and FOAF community. We could also take such a 
list and poke around to find blog RSS feeds etc. to auto-generate 
'planet' aggregators, lots of possible applications I think.

Re Calendar stuff, see http://semanticweb.org/wiki/Talk:Events also for 
requests/suggestions. The Events page is great. And anything we can do 
to move conference CFPs into a more automation-friendly mode would be a 
great help to all our mailboxes I think.

Again, nice work. I look forward to hearing more on what's planned...
