[tdwg-tag] TAG Roadmap for 2008 - Job vacancy!

Dear TAG Member,

With kind support from others I have now pulled together what I  
believe is the text for the 2008 Roadmap. I will polish this some more  
but do not plan to change it radically. This will be presented to the  
conference in Fremantle next month as the output of the TAG.


Please take a few moments to read this through and edit or comment on  
the list if you don't agree with it or think anything is missing. I  
will take silence as assent!

On or around the 8th October I will convert the wiki page into a PDF  
and start distributing it.

I would like to take this opportunity to announce that I wish to stand  
down as convener of the TAG as of the Fremantle conference. I believe  
it would be good for the TAG and TDWG to have some fresh blood in this  
position. I still hope to continue contributing to TDWG but perhaps in  
different ways.

The procedure for choosing a new convener is somewhat vague but I  
believe it should be done through group consensus. Perhaps we could  
start a discussion on this list and those who are coming to Fremantle  
could discuss it further.

Who do you think should take this forward? Would you like to take this  

All the best,


Roger Hyam
