I also thought I would also address this statement about the LSID-GUID

> The invitation to the LGTG workshop was open to everyone.

"Thank you for your expression of interest in participating in the GBIF
LSID-GUID Task Group. Due to the need to have a mix of skills/experience and
to try to maintain a geographical spread (difficult), it did not prove
possible to include you in the core group (North America was
over-represented in the nominations)"

I have no animosity toward GBIF for this, I have just become increasingly
concerned about a growing paper trail that is amazingly similar to my own
proposals but fails to mention my work.

It seems strange to me that of all the people involved in TDWG and Linked
Data discussions over the last year my efforts seem to be being positioned
as "invisible".
