W3C * SWAD
At W3C, we put a high priority on meeting records; when 10 people get together for an hour, we want to get the maximum value out of it. (@@cite "essentials of effective meetings"). Let's see if using RDF can help us get more out of our meetings... track agenda items, issues, detect scheduling conflicts, etc.
In this style of meeting records, we handle time by using events/messages (@@cite INDECS, etc.). e.g. we don't say "the chair of the meeting is/was fred". We say "fred accepted to chair the meeting"; i.e. "there was a chairAcceptance message from fred in respons to the meeting call".
the Makefile has the details. @@try out timbl's Makefile->rdf->SVG thingy? results
to turn .rdf meeting records into .html:
.rdf.html: $(XSLT) $< minutes2html.xsl $@
rdfc25May.html: rdfc25May.rdf minutes2html.xsl rdfc25May.rdf: rdfc25May.n3 rdfc-mem.n3 $(PYTHON) $(CWM) rdfc25May.n3 rdfc-mem.n3 -rdf=c -bySubject >$@
In this style, we accpet that knowledge is relative to context, ala time in OpenCyc. @@see also: Guha's thesis
