If "chair" means that I'm the person that stands up in front of
the audience and makes presentations (like at the workshop), no
problems.  If "chair" means that I have to write everything down,
I would disappoint everybody, since I'm really lousy at writing
things down.

Also, I've been accepted to the PICS (Platform for Internet Content
Selection -- http://www.w3.org/PICS/) technical team, so we can
attempt to coordinate with their rating service work.  I'm starting
to interact with Paul Resnick (the PICS technical chair).  I want to
get `permission' to share the current content labeling proposal with
the rest of the annotations group.  I'm not sure `permission' is
really needed, but I want to ask Paul just to be sure.

Luckily, Dan has already volunteered to start the writing process.
Dan and I have been sending E-mail back and forth as he tries to
extract the unwritten details of my annotation proxy server from
my brain.  We will probably dump some of that E-mail onto the mail
alias to promote further discussion.
