ORGANIZATION: Important announcement - new cochair!

  I am pleased to announce that Guus Schreiber has agreed to co-chair 
the Web Ontology Working Group and that this has been approved by the 
W3C Director.  As you may have guessed, the size of the working group 
and the amount we are trying to accomplish makes chairing this group 
a difficult task, consuming a very large amount of time.  I had 
reached the limit of what I could provide without help, and am very 
happy that Guus has agreed to cochair.   As you saw at the Face to 
Face Meeting, Guus is good with organization, has a strong background 
in our area, and is very good at being the calming voice of reason 
when tempers flare.  I look very forward to working with him, and 
thank him profusely for agreeing to take this position.  I know 
you'll give Guus the same sort of support and cooperation you've 
given to me, and I believe this will help us to reach our goals
