ACTION-15 -- Andrew Braun to review use cases based on today's discussion -- due 2010-12-08 -- OPEN
14:05:45 [trackbot]
14:06:47 [matt]
Andy: Reviewing the use cases: we had a meeting on 11/17 that surrounded the use cases. We agreed they were to be for testing the data format. Reviewing the minutes, numerous people stepped forward to review them. I looked at them, and it seems we have a good set of use cases from my perspective.
14:06:54 [Zakim]
+ +
14:07:12 [jacques]
14:07:31 [matt]
Andy: The one thing that's missing I think is real-time use cases. By that I mean things like Foursquare or Gowalla where there are things happening at places right now.
14:07:53 [matt]
I'm not sure if it's an extension or a core thing. But the data format needs to support something real-time.
14:07:55 [matt]
zakim, aaaa is jacques
14:07:55 [Zakim]
+jacques; got it
14:08:16 [matt]
Andy: That's the use case I saw missing. I'll write it up in a generic way and send it to the list. I thought we could take a few minutes to discuss it here.
14:08:33 [matt]
Luca: Don't you think AR is kind of a real-time use case?
14:08:56 [matt]
-> Use Case
14:09:11 [alex_]
14:09:12 [matt]
Andy: Looking at our use cases I didn't see the real-time nature of it being captured.
14:09:19 [matt]
Regrets+ danbri
14:09:37 [alex_]
thanks, matt
14:09:41 [alex_]
14:10:01 [matt]
Andy: I'm wondering how we make use of the real-time Web, with constantly changing data. Maybe location base advertising is real-time, but it seems more fixed case.

Luca: ?? communication, like my presence.
14:10:30 [matt]

14:11:16 [matt]
alex_: With respect to AR, where we have guide/create/play has a good breadth to it and is a good reflection of what we have above it, but most of it I think we see as queries. Informational... would fall into the first bullet point of AR Guide.
14:11:35 [matt]
alex_: What I don't see is the typical case where I want to create real-time data and leave it for someone.
14:11:54 [matt]
[[Great point on creation Alex! +1]]
14:12:16 [matt]
alex_: We don't seem to cover quick peer-to-peer data real-time data exchange between users.
14:12:24 [alex_]
14:12:57 [matt]
q+ to ask where we think we'll use this data, backend? directly in the clients? transform from JSON in a Web page or is this sort of a storage format?
14:13:18 [matt]
gary: From a definition and processing point of view, there's no difference between static and real-time.
14:13:42 [matt]
gary: Yes, you are creating content and adding to the corpus, but I don't think that counts as real-time, it's just another content feed.
14:13:47 [alex_]
+1 use case doesn't necessarily inform the data model or underlying standard
14:13:49 [matt]
ack gary
14:14:25 [matt]
gary: The use cases are a good representation now for a first round. Let's not get hung up on these now.

14:15:58 [alex_]
14:16:08 [matt]
alex: I agree that more use cases won't necessarily inform the underlying data model, but more use cases are good.
14:16:20 [matt]
Andy: I'm concerned if we leave out some of the buckets then we risk having a format that doesn't fit.

14:18:48 [matt]
gary: The two main things we probably need to flesh out face-to-face next week: the use cases people have put together with good depth and breadth, despite not being all-inclusive, we should split into groups, one to look at real world use cases and another to look at the underlying data representation.
14:19:14 [matt]
gary: Then another working on a straw man data format. Bring them together, see how they align, which blow holes in one another, etc.
14:19:17 [matt]
Andy: Good suggestion.

alex_: That sounds like a good beginning for an agenda item next week.
14:20:33 [Andy]
14:20:47 [matt]
gary: I'd like to get at the f2f something we're happy with, refinements, work to be done, etc. Something concrete to say to the powers that be: "this isn't just a talking shop, isn't an extremely long winded group that after five years comes out too late"
14:20:55 [matt]
alex_: I agree, something concrete should be the major goal.
14:21:00 [matt]

14:23:46 [matt]
Andy: Sounds like we're in agreement that some sort of pen-to-paper is the critical outcome of the f2f.
14:24:00 [matt]
Andy: Breakout groups on use cases and data format are useful as well. I'll craft something around that as a strawman.
14:24:20 [matt]
Andy: I'd hope to do the physical agenda creation at the meeting, but we'll have a good strawman based on these conversations.

q+ to ask about OGC specs and who knows what?
14:25:46 [matt]
Andy: We probably want to do these specs prior to the breakout.
14:25:51 [matt]
gary: Sounds quite reasonable.
14:26:12 [matt]
alex_: I think what I wanted to hear was that we'd try to make a stab at the spec before we go into breakout groups?
14:26:21 [matt]
14:26:41 [alex_]
got it
14:26:41 [matt]
Andy: At the f2f we should review the specs from the page.

+1 get a slide deck from Raj
14:33:02 [matt]
matt: My gut says we've got experts on: KARML, ARML, GML*, the SemWebby ones. Not all at the f2f unfortunately. But I think we're missing experts on GeoPriv, OpenStreetMap, etc.

Topic: F2F Agenda Creation
14:36:34 [matt]
Andy: I had three things:
14:36:58 [matt]
Andy: 1. Specs review 2. Use Case review 3. Doc Start
14:37:11 [matt]
Andy: I think we've got agreements on those. Are there other things that need to be on the agenda outside of what we talked about?
14:37:24 [matt]
Andy: Should we have a data model section?
14:37:36 [matt]
gary: I'd say that is probably the fourth part. It's sitting in between 1 and 3.
14:37:55 [matt]
gary: Probably go on co-simultaneously in breakout groups.
14:38:02 [Andy]
14:38:30 [matt]
alex_: What is the breakout?
14:39:37 [matt]
gary: I'd say break out during the use case review into 2 or more groups: 1. review use cases with real world uses 2. the physical definition of a POI. Then regroup and utilize that new information to codify into a new first draft.
14:40:17 [matt]
alex_: That clarifies to me that we do this fourth item, that we sit down and figure out what we're going to write.
14:40:22 [matt]
14:40:49 [matt]
gary: Will we have white boards and/or big sort of A3 size pads for scribbling? Net access? Projection?
14:41:02 [matt]
alex_: That sounds great, I'll do everything I can to accommodate that. I think we can.
14:41:16 [matt]
Andy: If anything else needs to get there, let me know sometime monday morning.
14:41:52 [matt]
alex_: We've got them if we need them. I will send out between Andy and I some sort of doc describing more formally where to go, etc.
14:42:36 [matt]
gary: Hopefully we will all have phones to get us there. Also, halfway decent coffee would help.
14:43:30 [matt]
alex_: When you're on the ground, the address is going to have to have more information to get there without confusion.
14:43:39 [matt]
gary: Sounds like a use case.
14:43:48 [matt]
gary: Use each of the services and see how easy it is to get there.
14:44:13 [Andy]
ACTION: Andy to talk with OGC about overview presentation
14:44:13 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-21 - Talk with OGC about overview presentation [on Andrew Braun - due 2010-12-15].
14:44:48 [matt]
Andy: The other thing about the agenda, I tend to err on the side of less is better. Given that we have four pretty broad topics here, there's maybe one or two things we might add that are more specific, but not a whole lot.
14:44:48 [gary]
+1 to flexible and less rigid agendas
14:44:59 [alex_]
+1 too many agenda items just lets us stay on cruise control
14:45:08 [Luca]
+1 flexible agenda
14:45:14 [matt]
+1 we always end up creating new agenda items in the meeting itself.
14:45:31 [matt]
alex_: Sometimes too rigid an agenda puts the meeting on cruise control and makes it hard to get to the real work.
