Thanks guys for all the hard work! For some of us it's been a looong  
journey. Certainly the first written document that led up to RDFa dates  
 from 2002. Only 13 years! The first dcument with the name RDF/A dates from  
2004.

One day I will update and fill this out:

Best wishes,

Steven Pemberton
