You may have seen:

"Upcoming Events: 

    XML’ 99, 5-9 Dec '99 in Philadelphia (a GCA Conference)
    meet Judy Brewer, Bert Bos, Dan Connolly, Dave Raggett,
    Joseph Reagle, Chris Lilley, Michael Sperberg-McQueen
    from the W3C Team "

and, meanwhile, a lot of discussion in xml-dev and elsewhere about
what W3C is doing with XML (and HTML and ...) and how
and why it does all this stuff.

I propose we get together over an IRC channel and chat:

Who: everybody's welcome
	In addition to myself, Bert Bos, Ian Jacobs,
	Henry Thompson, and Daniel Veillard
	from the W3C Team plan to be there.

When: Friday, 3 December at 1500Z (9am U.S. Central time)
	for about an hour.

	(Apologies to the parts of the world where that's
	inconvenient. The log will go online, and hopefully
	we'll have more chats at different times of day in the future.)

Where: irc://
	i.e. channel #w3c on

        about this IRC network, see
	Open Projects Network - New User?

	stay tuned to the XML home page
	for other details.
