The W3C just announced the W3C Semantic Web Activity Phase 2 which includes the following:
- Semantic Web Interest Group (was RDF IG)
- RDF Data Access Working Group - NEW to provide a web interface to rdf data stores by a query language. Think Joseki, RDF Net API, SOAP, REST with RDQL, SeRQL etc. (charter)
- Semantic Web Best Practices and Deployment Working Group (no home page yet) - NEW to work on small and practical documents for deploying semweb technology (charter)
- RDF Core and WebOnt WG continue till May primarily to handle errata
Next task: decide whether to join any of these. This should be clearer after the W3C Technical Plenary next week near Nice, France.
