First work session

Having familiarized myself with the basics of XML (the carrier for our rdf data) and XSLT (the language used to translate XML into HTML) I got together with Patrick and Evan to start contributing to the website. The first thing we did was to begin enhancing the Tetherless World ontology, the document defining the hierarchical classes and their properties used everywhere in the site. After hashing out what we planned to do we finished adding in the different kinds of deadlines we had come up with previously. Patrick and Evan are adding content creation forms for events and organizations but I have to head out. Homework: learn vim and make the person form.
