[Fwd: SKOS is a W3C Recommendation]

By the way, talking about recommendations, it seems that the following 
message has never been officially posted that list. 
Which is extremely puzzling...

Currently on the W3C home page:

 From Chaos, Order: SKOS Recommendation Helps Organize Knowledge

    2009-08-18: Today W3C announces a new standard that builds a bridge
    between the world of knowledge organization systems - including
    thesauri, classifications, subject headings, taxonomies, and
    folksonomies - and the linked data community, bringing benefits to
    both. Libraries, museums, newspapers, government portals,
    enterprises, social networking applications, and other communities
    that manage large collections of books, historical artifacts, news
    reports, business glossaries, blog entries, and other items can
    now use Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) to leverage
    the power of linked data. The Semantic Web Deployment Working
    Group also published today two Group Notes with the
    Recommendation, updating the SKOS Primer and SKOS Use Cases and
    Requirements. Read the press release [1] and testimonials [2]
    and learn more about the Semantic Web Activity.
