Hi folks

Schema.org is ten! Time flies, etc.

There's a blog post up at
http://blog.schema.org/2021/06/schemaorg-is-ten.html but for your clicking
convenience I've copied it below.

Sincere thanks to all who have been part of this effort in any and every
way!

Cheers,

Dan

----------

Schema.org was announced ten years ago this week! Without getting all
emotional, this feels like an appropriate moment to thank everyone who has
contributed to this effort in any way - from publishers, technologists and
standards experts to those who build applications that use the markup, or
who work on publishing it from sites across the web. Some but not all of
you are named in our documentation (about us
<https://schema.org/docs/about.html>; release notes
<https://schema.org/docs/releases.html>);  but the truth is that the
success of Schema.org comes in large part from the millions of sites who
have adopted it as a practical way to communicate the meaning of their
content using structured data.

Schema.org was founded on the idea of making it easier and simpler for the
ordinary, everyday sites that make up the web to use machine-readable data,
and for that data to enable an ecosystem of applications used by millions
of people. While it's hard to predict exactly what the next decade will
bring, if we can all keep these founding concerns in mind as we improve,
refine and curate our growing collection of schemas, we'll be doing our
part to continue improving the web.

Dan & Guha
For Schema.org.
