What is the plan? What needs to be done? Why?

Scanning the various CMS pieces, it looks like there is lots of people trying
but no real recent momentum. Correct me if I am wrong.

I have played with editable content areas in the past (10+ years ago) 
and the approach
has merit. Never looked at combining it with semantic web tech as 
understanding of it was still early.

I have a background in PHP and now code mostly JS. I am looking at 
combining the two again this and next year as I will be releasing open 
source tooling for PHP built using JS.

I may be interested in some of this work. If so I would take over 
create.js as part of one of my other projects and evolve it to be more 
generic and more compatible with other projects. But this would make 
sense for me only if I can create momentum in the community again 
(ultimately bringing exposure to my other open source tooling which is 
all about the open web) which assumes that what is missing is primarily 
a fresh direction by lifting it out of the Midgard ecosystem and 
refining the idea.

I am new to JSON-LD, RDFa, graph databases and other linked data 
concepts and would take this as an opportunity to learn from others 
deeply entrenched and in return bring my development workflow and 
program composition experience to new semantic web tooling.

For the benefit of this list, and my understanding, please provide as 
much context as you can and where you see things going. What role will 
JSON-LD play? What needs to be done ideally and minimally? What are the 
timelines? What are other people working on?

I met Henri once at a Wakanda conference in Boston 
(http://2011.wakanday.org/). Maybe he remembers me. Have been wanting 
to get closer to his work for some time.

Christoph
