Hello Matt,
This is chandru, looking into AR in OMA and sorry being late-in into poiwg.
I'm glad to join this group to hear valuable discussions, which enables me
to contribute in standardizing the AR in a renowned org like w3c:-)
I observed place-holders in the draft charter and hope we fill with more
relevant and rich specifications for AR soon. Few things I'm vague at -
	- is the group only limited to specify the poi data format?
	- can we extend the scope for store and render the AR contents as
	- specify user interactivity actions (eg Click to Respond etc) 
	- secure transport mechanism for AR contents delivery

Matt, can you pls advice me on how to join member-poiwg@w3.org, though LG is
member of W3C.

Hi Phil, everyone,

Ah, a concrete example!

What I don't follow in this example, is why "criteria" has to be spelled out
separately and isn't instead represented as a set of additional properties
for a query/trigger/search/whatever to match against?  What, for instance,
if the "trigger" is a plaintext search?  Say, I wanted to find something
"delicious".  Would you then have to duplicate item/description/text into
item/criteria?  I don't see how triggers would be any different than other
property of a point of interest.

Anyway, I've cobbled together some draft text based on these discussions and
Jonathan's draft charter and put it in the POI wiki:

While it's in a wiki, I think it's best if we discuss changes here, rather
than have everyone make changes directly.  I'll distill the discussions into
