Welcome to the RDF Interest Group

At long last we've found the resources to organize an Interest Group
for developers, users, and designers interested in discussing the
W3C Resource Description Framework (http://www.w3.org/RDF/).

Thanks to Dan Brickley for agreeing to facilitate this discussion
group and thanks to the University of Bristol for permitting him
the time to do so.

From the charter (http://www.w3.org/RDF/IGcharter):

  "The RDF Interest Group is a forum for W3C Members and non-Members
   to discuss innovative metadata applications. ... [it] will address
   both architectural/systems issues as well as application (e.g. T&S)
   interests; it is a forum for everyone interested in storing,
   exchanging, searching, and using metadata."

In other words, the agenda for this interest group is wide open;
the group will be what you, the participants, make it.

So feel free to chime in with your ideas, your questions, and your
answers to others' questions.  Judge for yourself which answers
might be more authoritative than others.  We're all experts here
in some area or another.  By sharing our expertise we'll help
build the greater community understanding that will make the
Web a better place.
