RE: [RDB2RDF XG] Hello and question about f2f


I would suggest to rotate meetings between Boston and Bay area where I suspect most of us are.

Dave, Wolfgang and others:
If there are some folks in Beijing for other reasons and want to meet to
discuss RDB2RDF that's fine.
But for our initial f2f we need at least a 2 day meeting and I'm afraid
that is not going to be possible
at WWW2008.  Also, my guess is that the majority of the XG membership is
not going to be in Beijing,
