New Year's Resolutions?

Last year I staged some of my favorite notions as Prophecies. Progress towards their fulfillment was strongly felt and even participated in at TPAC 2008, which was a triumph of its kind.

This year's entry is more of a "Wish List" than a set of resolutions/prophecies. I hope to be able to, in however small a way, take part in the Web Foundation's effort to do major Webspread.

I found out how individuals without company connections can join and did so. I expect there to be a "Web Pioneers" group with somewhat similar aims.

I guess the most striking thing at Mandelieu is how very young most of the participants are - they're like my surrogate grandchildren (or perhaps even great-grandchildren). What a treat!

Merry Christmas, you old Geezer.

It was good to see you there!

I've been thinking about the volunteering aspect, and wondering about mutating the FOAF project into something that plays matchmaker between bright technologists of the semweb persuasion and causes that need some practical information-management help. Have you come across many comparable organizations?
