At SemTech 2009 in June, discussions with the Franz group brought the opportunity for Dr. Jans Aasman to visit our Meetup here in Seattle and exchange ideas centric to the maturing of offerings in the Semantic Web.
Please welcome Jans to our corner of the Semantic Universe, and come participate in this Meetup as a beginning of the SemTech 2009 presenters who have expressed interests with involvement with our group.
