"New W3C Community Groups in the Semantic Web World"
W3C has launched the concepts of Community and Business Groups a few weeks ago. These groups are easy-to-create, open groups for developers, with only very few strings attached (essentially, one has to have a W3C account, public or member, to join the group). In two weeks, 18 groups have been created, which is a significant number in my view. In those 18 groups, here are the groups that closely to the activities of the Linked Data and Semantic Web communities.
Direct to a Few of the Groups
- Ontology-Lexica Community Group
- Oil, Gas and Chemicals Business Group
- Uncertainty, Trust and the Semantic Web Community Group
- Semantic News Community Group
You can find info/links about all new and proposed W3C Community and Business Groups here.
