5: Press Release Input and Request for Reviewers

Janet congratulated RDFCore on gettng the docs ready.  Subject to the
director's decision, the plan is hold a joint announcement with WEBONT on
Feb 10 2004 under the banner of reaching a major milestone in the
development of the semantic web.

Testimonials are an important part of the announcement.  Janet presented the
material in:


as guidance for those preparing a testimonial.  Details can be found in the
irc log



A key message is that the semantic web is real, not just theoretical, so
folks are strongly encouraged to include real examples of how the semantic
web is being used in their testimonials.

There will be separate sheets of testimonials for RDF and OWL.  A single
testimonial relevant to both can be put on both, or an organisation can
prepare separate testimonials for each.

Please send all communications to both the PR team and cc Eric Miller.

There should shortly be a draft of the W3C press release so folks understand
the context in which the testimonial will appear.

Testimonials have not be sought from the membership in general, though that
will be done shortly.  Eric has been actively soliciting support from folks
working on RDF but not on the WG.

An example testimonial sheet can be found at
http://www.w3.org/2004/01/ccpp-testimonial and others can be found under

If some organizations wish to make their own press release, W3C welcomes
that, but requests:

  - the W3C has 24 hours to check that W3C is accurately represented in the
  - that accompanying releases are sent at least 15 minutes after the
scheduled W3C release which is 10am Eastern time, 10 Feb 2004.
  - folks may be asked to delay if there are problems, e.g. in publishing
the docs

W3C places no restrictions on who from an organisation signs a testimonial,
but recommends that someone whose name is familiar to the trade press does

Any questions should be sent to the W3T PR list and cc'd to Eric Miller.
