Hi I wanted to do a quick message blast to welcome you to the New Year! I'm really looking forward to organizing events for this year. We are starting off very well with the Introduction to the Factual API meetup tonight. In a short two weeks Marco from the New York Semantic Web Meetup will join us and present the Semantic Social Network and Representing Temporal informating in the Semantic Web. I'm also pleased that we will have Russ Foltz Smith from Wolfram Alpha present in early February!
Please RSVP and attend if you have not RSVP'ed. Also if you are interested or know someone who would like to speak - contact me or any of the assistant organizers!
That's it for now - more to come when plans solidify.
Meet other local people interested in the Semantic Web, an initiative by the W3C [http://www.w3c.org] to make the web "one giant database": The Data Web. We address technologies such as RDF, RDFS, OWL, and applications that help to develop or that use ontologies, controlled vocabularies and rules systems in the enterprise and on the World Wide Web.
