13:40:16 [darobin]
KN: we should focus first on use cases and research that already exist
13:40:29 [darobin]

13:44:20 [darobin]
JA: the charter is quite ambitious
13:44:44 [darobin]

JA: Chris will coordinate the first TF "Usage of Web Standards", Ari "Transparency and Participation", and Oscar "Seamless Integration of Data"
13:48:51 [darobin]
Oscar: I completely agree about the scope issues, so I would say that we should first make an overview of different areas
13:48:58 [darobin]
[someone is breathing into their phone]
13:49:01 [josema]
Chris Testa, USHMM;
13:49:16 [josema]
zakim, who's noisy?
13:49:27 [Zakim]
josema, listening for 10 seconds I heard sound from the following: Katie (9%), vassilios (9%), Oscar (72%)
13:49:36 [darobin]
Oscar: we need to be very specific, otherwise the group is going to get lost
13:49:56 [darobin]
[I'm not sure that's exactly what he said, someone was enacting Darth Vader at the same time]
13:50:31 [darobin]
Ari: there's been a lot of discussion about e-Democracy and many projects, and narrowing the focus to where we can be most useful as a group
13:51:06 [Zakim]
13:51:20 [darobin]
KN: at least for the first year, though we have three TFs we believe it is best to have the entire IG meet as one to encourage discussion and focus
13:52:41 [darobin]
JA: we were reviewing different approaches, and we saw a number of docs being Foo Use Cases & Requirement
13:52:55 [josema]
13:53:19 [darobin]
13:53:48 [josema]
different example:
13:54:18 [darobin]
JA: then we have "Literature Review" documents, which take a different approach
13:54:43 [darobin]
kjetil, wanna go first?
13:54:44 [kjetil]
Zakim, unmute me
13:54:44 [Zakim]
kjetil should no longer be muted
13:55:38 [darobin]
KK: the POWDER UC is mostly targeted towards developing a very specific technology, and used as a way to check that the technology solution matched the requirements
13:55:45 [darobin]
KK: for POWED it was useful
13:55:48 [darobin]
Zakim, unmute me
13:55:48 [Zakim]
darobin should no longer be muted
13:55:49 [kjetil]
Zakim, mute me
13:55:49 [Zakim]
kjetil should now be muted
13:56:13 [josema]
robin: XBC use cases, not to produce technical solution?
13:56:21 [kjetil]
darobin, you're breaking up a bit
13:56:26 [josema]
... views of different stakeholders
13:57:33 [josema]
... even if not all the use cases are there, useful enough as a start
13:57:33 [darobin]
Zakim, mute me
13:57:33 [Zakim]
darobin should now be muted
13:58:38 [darobin]
Oscar: we all have different backgrounds, and that should help us to have a more general approach
13:59:04 [darobin]
Oscar: we should all make a list of use cases, and see which ones we pick. And then later produce useful standards
13:59:43 [darobin]
Oscar: so we start general and get more specific
13:59:59 [darobin]
KN: agreed, and it should all be posted to the wiki (and to email)
14:00:34 [darobin]
ACTION: Oscar to open a new section in the wiki for use cases for his TF
14:00:34 [trackbot]
Sorry, couldn't find user - Oscar
14:00:38 [darobin]
ACTION: Ari to open a new section in the wiki for use cases for his TF
14:00:38 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-1 - Open a new section in the wiki for use cases for his TF [on Ari Schwartz - due 2008-07-02].
14:00:41 [darobin]
ACTION: Chris to open a new section in the wiki for use cases for his TF
14:00:41 [trackbot]
Sorry, couldn't find user - Chris
14:01:33 [darobin]
??: how far do we intend to take public participation
14:02:24 [darobin]
JA: for those who have worked in a WG before, you'll know that the tools have been developed to do Rec-track work, in private
14:02:48 [darobin]
JA: this group is different, and the tools have had to be reconfigured, things are changing
14:03:02 [darobin]
JA: I myself would like this group be as open as possible
14:03:16 [darobin]
JA: lower every barrier that can lowered
14:04:39 [darobin]
JA: the Process creates formalities, but everyone is welcome nevertheless
14:04:53 [darobin]
JA: we are encouraging Invited Experts
14:05:14 [darobin]
JA: we skip W3M approval for IEs
14:06:05 [darobin]
JA: I hope you don't mind that people will have access to everything
14:06:33 [darobin]
JA: only the group members can write, but everyone can read (and membership is open anyway)
14:07:58 [darobin]
JA: I was thinking about generating our documents from the Wiki, everyone could see the evolution of the draft
14:08:15 [darobin]
JA: the minutes of this call are logged publicly, and will be emailed right after
14:09:19 [darobin]
KN: I think that the openness is very important, many people might not have the financial option of participating, and being public helps make sure that we are accountable to our requirements
14:09:44 [darobin]
KN: I hope we can get smart people out there to join as IEs
14:09:52 [vassilios]
Could someone prepare an invitation email for promoting these kind of participation?
14:10:24 [darobin]
JS: I agree with that, but I would like to note that if you're an official working for a govt there may be some things that you cannot say publicly
14:10:58 [darobin]
JS: there are things that we would be willing to share if not attributable, off the record, and some of those might be amongst the more interesting
14:11:24 [josema]
Yep, Vassilios, any specific topics you'd like to addressed there?
14:11:35 [darobin]
KN: I very much understand that point, and we might develop a way to have a backchannel for those situations
14:12:36 [darobin]
JA: you can always ask the scribe to take you off the record
14:12:50 [darobin]
JA: we can also have a seperate mailing list or a member-only wiki
14:13:01 [darobin]
JA: if there is value for that, I can set it up
14:13:29 [darobin]
OA: I have a very strong preference for openness, especially since we're working on Transparency & Participation
14:14:14 [vassilios]
Returning back to the content, could we introduce a round where WG participants
14:14:14 [vassilios]
could send to the TF leaders ideas for possible inclusion in future discussions?
14:14:19 [darobin]
JA: let's talk about the liaisons
14:14:40 [darobin]
vassilios: you can always propose agenda items on the mailing list
14:14:41 [josema]
close this agendum
14:14:46 [josema]
move to next agendum
14:14:46 [Zakim]
agendum 6. "Liaisons: review charter ones, new proposed ones " taken up [from 15min]
14:15:04 [darobin]
KN: OASIS is asking that we don't duplicate efforts, and their eGov activity is being resurrected
14:15:21 [darobin]
KN: we talked Monday about that and about potential synergies
14:15:25 [josema]
soem here:
14:15:34 [josema]
14:15:38 [josema]
some more here:
14:15:56 [darobin]
KN: we could co-lead conferences or events
14:16:06 [darobin]
KN: we could meet regularly, share docs
14:17:00 [darobin]
JA: we are chartered to talk to other organisations
14:17:36 [darobin]
JA: usual discussion is "we would love to chat with you"
14:17:44 [vassilios]
14:17:59 [darobin]
JA: the problem of course is one of scope
14:18:14 [vassilios]
14:18:21 [darobin]
JA: governments expect from us a suite of open standards that would help them achieve their goals
14:18:50 [darobin]
JA: they need an integrated solution to their problems
14:19:04 [josema]
14:19:36 [darobin]
JA: OASIS had a Technical Committee (TC), like a W3C WG, but switched to a less technical approach
14:19:55 [darobin]
JA: their charter looks very similar to ours
14:20:21 [darobin]
JA: that is not because one copied on the other, but simply because we are getting our information from the same sources
14:20:32 [darobin]
JA: there is common ground that could be explored
14:21:08 [darobin]
JA: they also have their first call this week
14:21:15 [darobin]
JA: ongoing discussion with them
14:22:11 [darobin]
KN: any opinion?
14:22:36 [darobin]
PK: I think it's important to collaborate to avoid duplicate standards which create confusion
14:22:50 [RobertoCastaldo]
Completely agree, standards cannot be duplicated
14:23:17 [darobin]
JS: if we are missing links, it should tell us who we want to bring into this group
14:23:33 [darobin]
in other groups there are "Liaison Officers"
14:24:45 [darobin]
I think that joint work can be great but you still want one person to be responsible for the contact so that the link isn't dropped IMHO
14:24:53 [darobin]
OA: we should focus on common objectives
14:25:31 [darobin]
OA: I would be more than happy to map to StratML this group and other groups so that we can see common goals
14:27:10 [darobin]
PS: we should be clear about where we as individuals are participating elsewhere, that can help a lot in creating links
14:27:37 [RobertoCastaldo]
14:27:43 [darobin]
KN: I think that's a great idea, are people open to posting it to the wiki
14:27:50 [darobin]
JS: completely open about that
14:28:06 [ari]
14:28:16 [Mercedes]
Sorry, I have to go. Useful discussion though.
14:28:46 [darobin]
JA: we should talk about the status of liaisons regularly
14:29:14 [darobin]
JA: I will talk to the OASIS people about StratML
14:29:35 [darobin]
OA: it's under the auspices of AIM [there was echo]
14:29:45 [josema]
close this agendum
14:29:49 [josema]
move to next agendum
14:29:49 [Zakim]
agendum 7. "Next Meeting" taken up [from 5min]
14:30:43 [darobin]
JA: I will be on holidays most of July, I don't know how the group feels about moving ahead without me
14:31:01 [darobin]
JA: I personally encourage you to work
14:32:37 [kjetil]
Zakim, unmute me
14:32:37 [Zakim]
kjetil should no longer be muted
14:32:39 [kjetil]
14:32:41 [darobin]
JA: the telcon is scheduled, the bots will work, the only possible issue could be minutes
14:32:55 [johnlsheridan]
Lets go for another in July
14:32:57 [darobin]
RESOLUTION: we will have our regular meetings without josema
14:33:12 [darobin]
JA: the next one would be July 9
14:33:15 [kjetil]
14:34:17 [darobin]
KN: I encourage everyone to use email and the wiki so that we don't lose momentum between calls
14:34:20 [darobin]
14:34:26 [Zakim]
14:34:26 [darobin]
