Memories of a semantic web working group in the early 2000s

Yeah, I remember following the progress and discussions of a semantic web working group including my friend Eric van der Vlist (xmlfr.org / dyomedea.com) and Aaron, back in the early 2000s - Eric had made a write-up of their high level design recommendations :

(Eric's mailing list I had subscribed to and was contributing to, once in a while, mostly around everything XML and XSLT)

E.g., http://xmlfr.org/actualites/tech/011206-0001

I knew right from the start RSS was a winner (read: an excellent idea) and would easily find quickly a lot of enthusiastic support among web software implementors.

What a waste of human potential with Aaron dying so young.

Thank you dear state.

R.I.P., Aaron.
