    is there a group for:

    2.7    Attribution (micro- and nano-credits) ?

  • Wednesday 09 September 2009 @ 18:20:03 (GMT)

    In response to Andrea, I think we are still waiting for a chair ?

    I think that Benjamin Good has declined due to the fact that he is takign a sort of sabbatical year.

    this seems relevant! it came up at the SAGE meeting I was at

    SAGE is tryijg to do the same thing as CWA but without the semantic web piece

    they have a lot of startup funding
