Meeting Records in RDF

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.

Take 1: 2000-11

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:

	$(XSLT) $< minutes2html.xsl $@

for example:

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
