Topic: Quick update on Org Vocab
15:12:23 [bhyland]
… by DaveReynolds
15:12:24 [PhilA]
The public mailing list for comments on our deliverables is
15:12:36 [fadmaa]
DaveReynolds: we captured issues particularly from provenance group. next step to me is to look at them and propose resolutions
15:14:20 [fadmaa]
bhyland: we have lost some people in this working group including Michael Hausenblas
15:14:56 [PhilA]
topic: What do individuals want to get out of the WG?
15:15:07 [fadmaa]
bhyland: let's see what people like to see things done from our charter in the remaining next 5 months
15:16:00 [fadmaa]
agipap: I find the Best practices document very helpful
15:16:43 [fadmaa]
agipap: it already helped us in our work and we finished a publication with its help recently
15:17:20 [fadmaa]
BartvanLeeuwen: I'd like to see the vocabularies we worked on in practice. I have done some work along this lines
15:17:51 [fadmaa]
BartvanLeeuwen: I think the best practice document should come from the results and lessons of putting things (vocabularies) in use
15:18:32 [Zakim]
15:19:01 [fadmaa]
BenediktKaempgen: Data Cube vocabulary is my focus. it is related to my PhD topic and a number of projects we are working on

15:21:39 [fadmaa]
bhyland: is there a (reference) implementation using Data Cube vocabulary as part of these projects?
15:22:09 [fadmaa]
BenediktKaempgen: it is being used in a number of projects and we publish data using it. not sure I call this a reference implementation
15:22:18 [PhilA]
15:23:11 [DaveReynolds]
we don't have "nothing" on QB, there are lots of public uses of it already
15:23:37 [fadmaa]
bhyland: I encourage you and all to share the work they are doing with the vocabularies even if the work is not perfect (yet)

15:27:16 [sandro]
DaveReynolds, is there a list of places of QB? I'm thinking this WG should be tracking such things, if someone else isn't.
15:27:31 [PhilA]
Just a nod to BenediktKaempgen that the subject of XBRL keeps coming up at W3C. If we get anywhere near something concrete, I'll let you know. It's been around for years and we keep dancing round each other

15:28:18 [fadmaa]
DaveReynolds: my main interest is on the vocabulary side, particularly Data Cube
15:29:06 [fadmaa]
DaveReynolds: giving the existing usage and adoption of Data Cube I'd be catious about introducing major changes

15:30:00 [BenediktKaempgen]
Thanks, PhilA. Currently, we are again participating in the XBRL challenge. So, great to hear that it also is interesting for W3C.

15:30:03 [fadmaa]
fadmaa: mainly dcat and the best practice document
15:30:12 [HadleyBeeman]
danbri, how do you define "some interest"?
15:30:12 [sandro]
gatemezi, are you on the phone?
15:31:04 [fadmaa]
HadleyBeeman: getting robust vocabularies to help producing interoperable data
15:31:13 [BenediktKaempgen]
@sandro: We are collecting datasets reusing QB at: Is that what you mean?
15:31:15 [sandro]
gatemezi, ahhh. bhyland was calling on you on the phone. :-)
15:31:47 [danbri]
HadleyBeeman ... I'm not sure! People who'll do the legwork, I guess.
15:32:01 [fadmaa]
HadleyBeeman: mostly interested in supporting the publication of integrated data and cross datasets links
15:32:26 [fadmaa]
HadleyBeeman: dcat and Org seem to be helpful to this goal along with the best practices
15:33:56 [fadmaa]
james: initially ADMS and Org vocabularies attracted me to the WG. I am happy to contribute to their development
15:35:21 [fadmaa]
james: I am most on the side of using the vocabularies (development) and can help in reviewing the specifications
15:35:36 [bhyland]
… Working with non-profit, citizens to monitor local gov't.
15:36:01 [HadleyBeeman]
DanBri: thanks. That helps me get a sense of what you need.
15:36:14 [sandro]
BenediktKaempgen, yes, that's exactly what I was asking about, I think.....
15:36:30 [fadmaa]

15:36:44 [fadmaa]
Mike_Pendleton: the glossary and community directory are also very helpful
15:38:00 [fadmaa]
olyerickson: the WG has been amazing so far. In the context of best practices, we have identified a number of vocabularies that people can use
15:38:24 [fadmaa]
olyerickson: I'd like to see a sustainable artifacts. In the sense that they hold up over time
15:38:38 [bhyland]
Olyserickson: Researcher/RPI. When we started, we aspired to produce BP for gov't agencies/researchers/companies who want to participate in this ecosystem. In 5 mos., I'd like to see sustainable artifacts that are used by practitioners.
15:39:17 [fadmaa]
olyerickson: that can be by providing artifacts that are general to an extent they remain useful but not too general to the extent that makes them useless

15:53:18 [fadmaa]
PhilA: European Data Forum 2012 was a success... in this year also there will be a good number of projects, practitioners... I encourage people to go there
15:54:22 [sandro]
everyone should double-check
15:54:39 [DaveReynolds]
Most issues are listed as "raised" rather than "open" but yes, I know all the ones that affect me :)
15:54:43 [olyerickson]
I'm on
15:54:53 [bhyland]
@Sandro … is that a no so subtle hint? ;-)
15:55:15 [bhyland]
When I look at my tracker, i see 10 items with my name...
15:55:25 [fadmaa]
PhilA: danbri mentioned an extension to about dataset
15:55:42 [bhyland]
Topic: datasets extent
15:55:43 [PhilA] Datasets extension, see
15:55:46 [fadmaa]
PhilA: it is similar to DCAT and ADMS and it is an important thing to keep an eye on
15:56:02 [bhyland]
Per olyerickson, heavily influenced by DCAT
15:56:08 [sandro]
15:56:22 [fadmaa]
olyerickson: the Dataset extension to is heavily influenced by DCAT
15:56:46 [bhyland]
… semi-open process, there is transparent process but ultimately search engines make final call
15:57:06 [fadmaa]
... the extension mechanism of requires showing feasibility and usefulness of the extension before being adopted
15:57:09 [bhyland]
… primary work done by Joshua @ RPI
15:57:44 [bhyland]
… recommend people in this group monitor the public list for
15:57:46 [PhilA]
Relevant mailing list is
15:57:52 [bhyland]
15:58:23 [bhyland]
… vendors & gov't data publishers & consumers should all be paying attention to this as it evolves, and contribute!
15:59:20 [BartvanLeeuwen]
16:00:49 [fadmaa]
sandro: this group is charted to advice the world about consensus regarding what vocabularies peole should use. I'm still concerned about what to recommend DCAT or extension
16:01:02 [fadmaa]
16:01:05 [bhyland]
sandro: This group is chartered to reflect the worldwide consensus on what gov't publishers should use to mark up their content
16:01:25 [bhyland]
… or ADMS or something else.
16:02:13 [PhilA]
16:02:46 [bhyland]
WG members options that gov publishers should use — it shouldn't be exclusive, rather inclusive. Discussed RDFa Lite v1.1 to decorate their pages …
16:02:50 [Zakim]
16:02:59 [fadmaa]
olyerickson: I think people should use DCAT to publish their catalogs. they also need to use light RDFa to annotate their web pages. Using allows major search engines to index the structured data embedded
16:03:09 [bhyland]
ping - we're outta' time
16:03:18 [PhilA]
16:03:22 [sandro]
16:03:29 [fadmaa]
olyerickson: the techniques are not exclusive in my opinion
16:04:13 [DaveReynolds]
+1 to Sandro's comments, group will eventually have to give clear advice and there is an apparent conflict here
