<ben_friedman> # Report back from W3C on our Whitepaper! – John/Doug/Glenda # Timeline for “finalizing” Whitepaper – Glenda # Your agenda item here

Report back from W3C on our Whitepaper!

W3M did talk about the OWEA white paper

Feedback from W3M is interested in our proposal and would like to continue exploring the idea of Web Ed becoming an activity within the W3C.

OWEA addresses an important need of the Web Community

Questions to explore: the OWEA timeframe for future work, milestones

defining relationship between WSRI and OWEA

WRSI = Web Science Research Initiatives

OWEA will need to find funding for 1 Full Time position for the OWEA activity lead

OWEA's goal is to be self-funded

<itpastorn> I have removed the chattering party from the room

thanks Lars :)

OWEA activity lead could be a person paid by someone else to be a W3C fellow

as we have more information about funding for the OWEA position, we will share this with you

Leslie: How many years do we need to plan for? 3 of 5.

Need to add details for a 3 to 5 year plan in the OWEA whitepaper.

Timeline for Finalizing White Paper

Need to refine: What is relationship with WSRI? (have conversation with them)

Add a timeline of our milestones and planned achievements

Funding, Full-Time Activity Lead

Sustainability plans

Focus on the nuts and bolts, the practical stuff needs to be written.

Timeline, Milestones, Funding, Full-Time Activity Lead, Sustainability

Goal to "final" white paper in Jan 2010


Need to clearly and consistently communicate about OWEA

Woot! Jessi Taylor and Stephanie Tate are joining the OWEA branding effort!

ben: will layout a high level overview and next steps for the branding group

leslie: need for consistent branding and visuals
... OWEA doesn't mean anything to people...we need to make sure our message is on target

<itpastorn> Trying to reconnect, but W3C does not pick up the phone

shepazu: will be connecting with WSRI

<shepazu> trackbot, end telcon
