The W3C is running a workshop on the future of social networking January 15 and 16 in Barcelona.
W3C is organizing a Workshop on the Future of Social Networking, with a high level goal of bringing together the world experts on social networking design, management and operation in a neutral and objective environment where the social networking history to date can be examined and discussed, the risks and opportunities analyzed and the state of affairs accurately portrayed. Based on the facts and a consensus-based industry landscape, plans for the future can be made by the industry participants.
An Interest or Working Group under the auspices of the W3C may even come out of this workshop.
