SWEO F2F Meeting

W3C's Semantic Web Education and Outreach Interest Group (SWEO) had it's 3rd F2F meeting last week. The event was well attended with many participants from SWEO, as well as a number of guests from other W3C activities. The meeting provided an opportunity to review our progress over the last year. Items of note included publishing a FAQ document, developing a site that collates Semantic Web case studies, and the creation of a new set of Semantic Web logos. During the F2F, we reviewed ongoing activities, and discussed approaches for raising the visibility of upcoming technologies such as RDFa, SPARQL, POWDER and SKOS. The day was wrapped up with a fun dinner at the Cambridge Brewing Company.
