There was an official announcement, as well as some references, on the fact that the structure of data related work has changed at W3C. A new activity has been created called “Data Activity” , that subsumes what used to be called the Semantic Web Activity. “Subsumes ”is an important term here: W3C does notabandon the Semantic Web work (I emphasize that because I did get such reactions); instead, the existing and possible future work is simply continuing within a new structure. The renaming is simply a sign that W3C has also to pay attention to the fact that there are many different data formats used on the Web, not all of them follow the principles and technologies of the Semantic Web, and those other formats and approaches also have technological and standardization needs that W3C might be in position to help with.
