Hi everybody,

We are very pleased to announce that we've just launched the new W3C Web Annotation Working Group [1]!

Thank you to everyone who has helped us create and refine the charter [2] for the WG, including the Open Annotation CG [3], the participants in the W3C Workshop on Annotations [4] (and its host, Hypothes.is), and all of the Advisory Committee representatives who supported the charter.

38 W3C member organizations actively supported forming the WG! This is an auspicious beginning.

Those of you who work for W3C member companies, who wish to join the WG, you can ask your AC rep to add you right now [5]. If you wish to join the WG, but don't work for a W3C member company, you may be eligible to become an Invited Expert; email Doug and me offlist, and we'll help you.

You don't have to join the Web Annotation WG to participate in the technical discussions, though. All of our technical discussions, and minutes of our telcons and f2f meetings, will be held on the public-annotation mailing list [6].

We plan to have our first face-to-face (f2f) meeting at W3C's TPAC meeting in Santa Clara, CA, on Tuesday, 28 October 2014 [7]. All Web Annotation WG members are welcome to attend, and we'll let you know when that option is ready on our registration form. Members of this Interest Group are also welcome to join the f2f, even if not officially member of the Annotation Working Group, as observers.

Thanks again, and we look forward to moving Web annotations forward with you all.

Ivan & Doug
