I am certainly keen for a meeting (if I can get funding to attend - no guarantees yet).
I would like to know where to from here for the TAG group, and how we can keep it moving without the funding.
Do we keep pushing the LSID, RDF, vocabs thing, or relax and let the others catch up first ;).
Protcols are going well, I feel, with majoF and EOL.

Dear TAG,

Apologies if this list has been quiet for the past few months. I am  
currently involved in implementing the http://www.BiodiversityCollectionsIndex.org 
   and so haven't had a chance to push things along in the TDWG  
architecture realm.

Arrangements are beginning to be made for the TDWG 2008 meeting in  
Fremantle, Australia on 19th to 25th October.


As a group the TAG need to decide how we can be most effectively use  
this meeting. I presume a subgroup meeting would be good but should it  
be at the beginning or end of the conference? How do we handle clashes  
with all the other activities that we will be involved in?

I will not be able to put too much time into TAG logistics  as in  
previous years so we will have to work as a group more - which is a  
good thing. Any offers of help and suggestions would therefore be even  
more gratefully received than normal.

It is also a responsibility of the TAG to produce a Roadmap for the  
year ahead before the meeting.

Your thoughts on Fremantle and the year ahead would be gratefully  
received. Firstly I would like to hear from people who will be  
attending the meeting and want to be involved in the TAG activities.

Many thanks,


Roger Hyam
