Scheduled Topic Chat

From: Christopher Schmidt <crschmidt@crschmidt.net>
Date: Sat, 4 Sep 2004 19:21:31 -0400
To: www-rdf-interest@w3.org
Message-ID: <20040904232131.GB3601@peanut.crschmidt.net>

In an attempt to contact all interested parties, I've been advised to 
post to this mailing list as well as the rdfweb-dev list. Apologies if 
anyone gets it twice.

In an attempt to spur continued discussion on FOAF and RDF related 
topics after the two recent gatherings (FOAFcamp and FOAF Galway 
conference), I'm hoping to create a weekly discussion on a FOAF-related 
topic, similar to the ScheduledTopicChats [1] which used to take place.

To this end, I've created a page on the FOAF wiki[2] with the intention 
of gathering preferred topics and possible participants. If you have an 
interest in participating, you can add yourself under a topic as well as 
adding your name to the list at the bottom of the page.

The chat will be held (if people decide to participate) at 1100 EDT/1500 
GMT on September 8th. The chat will be held in #rdfig on 
irc.freenode.net . A web interface has been set up at 
http://crschmidt.net/cgiirc/irc.cgi which will join this channel 
directly, for those not comfortable with IRC.

The agenda I had in mind would be something along the lines of the
following (times in Eastern because that's what I'm thinking in):

11:00AM  Call to Order, inform other people meeting is starting
         Introductions: Name, Rank, Serial Number
11:05AM  Topic introduction, linking to relevant resources to get
          everyone involved on the same page
11:15AM  Discussion: What people would like to see, what's needed,
          what's missing, what's okay but needs more work, general
          topic chatter
11:40AM  Wrap up - move important/relevant links to wiki, add
           participants list.
         Define goals - what do people want to see, what needs to be
           done, "Action Items", also added to wiki
11:50AM  Discussion of next meeting topic

If you aren't so good at translating times, the meeting time in your 
locale is available via the World Time Clock[3].

At 1600GMT tomorrow, Sept 5th, I will choose a topic based on the 
current responses, so that people interested in a certain topic can get 
together any resources they want to share.

If you are interested in attending, please edit the wiki page 
appropriately.
