W3C Government Linked Data Working Group First F2F June 29-30, 2011

DRAFT MINUTES: Day 1, Day 2.


The inaugural F2F for the W3C Government Linked Data (GLD) Working Group is open to the official participants and specifically invited guests, only. For this initial meeting, the chairs have invited as guests several people who are in the process of trying to become official participants. If you expect to attend this meeting (in person or remotely), please take a close look at the deliverables in the GLD charter.

This is important work and we hope that you'll consider sharing your expertise and use cases to support the GLD deliverables, which we hope will help to further and fulfill the pursuit of Open Government through the creation and consumption of high quality, reusable Government Linked Data.
