... RSS was one of the key early social standards; people were asking for it
16:08:44 [wseltzer]
... created the early social web, pull from end-users
16:08:54 [wseltzer]
... Where is the demand going to come from for social standards?
16:09:16 [wseltzer]
... How can we ensure solutions are a good fit for the problem?
16:09:23 [wseltzer]
... Successful standards are hard to create.

Anyone object to closing the doors?
16:09:46 [AnnBassetti]

16:09:53 [wseltzer]
... W3C has been fortunate to get high-level adoption of the core HTML
16:10:38 [wseltzer]
... Key to standards adoption: Simplicity (RSS fits on 2 pages)

... Universal: you can’t propose something be universal and keep control of it.
16:13:43 [wseltzer]
... Numerous standards have come but mostly gone.
16:13:46 [James_M_Snell]
Simplicity is key to success... Imperfections in the specs can be easily tolerated so long as the spec is accessible by everyone
16:13:59 [Kelvin_Lawrence]

... We expect results while deploying social mechanisms "off to the side"
16:15:35 [wseltzer]
... instead of isolating it, integrate it.
16:16:24 [wseltzer]
... Bring social together with your systems of record.
16:16:50 [wseltzer]
... Connect social media with the flow of work.
16:17:47 [wseltzer]
... How could we create a crystal-clear conception of what we want from social business architecture
16:18:15 [wseltzer]
... Make it as easy to use as the USB2 port on the side of your macbooks.
16:18:52 [wseltzer]
... Make it modular, able to talk with all the other apps and data we have.
16:19:14 [wseltzer]
... 1) federated and interoperable. Easy for anyone to plug in and extend
16:19:55 [wseltzer]
... We're surrounded by social but none of it works together
16:20:03 [wseltzer]
... That's our challenge
16:20:13 [wseltzer]
... What's missing in social standards?
16:20:23 [James_M_Snell]
Idea to consider: a "standard" social web app API..
16:20:35 [wseltzer]
[slide 8]
16:21:25 [ryanjbaxter]
@James but i have multiple identities, would it be different across the app?
16:21:47 [James_M_Snell]
allow apps to fill in the details behind the scenes
16:22:01 [ryanjbaxter]
what if I don't want the app to know who I am, there needs to be ways of granting access to that information
16:22:17 [wseltzer]
... Social Web doesn't look much like WWW; it's not universal
16:22:37 [ryanjbaxter]
I like the concept of the APIs being "native" though
16:22:46 [wseltzer]
... Silos of conversation impede progress
16:22:54 [James_M_Snell] returns the apps view of who I am... so it's limited to what data that app has access to
16:22:59 [wseltzer]
... Early social media: blogs, RSS, highly decentralized and interoperable
16:23:17 [wseltzer]
... Next era, large commercial socnets, with their own tech stacks
16:23:41 [aaronpk_]
aaronpk_ has joined #osfw3c
16:23:50 [wseltzer]
... if you're on socnet A, you may not be able to talk to people on socnet ZB
16:23:59 [wseltzer]
... network effects.
16:24:35 [wseltzer]
.... Who's our target audience for socbiz standards?

what was that stat? 'over 100 social networks, that can't talk to each other'? many with 100Ks of users....??
16:25:17 [wseltzer]
... consumer socnets, enterprise soc media vendors, developers, IT managers & decision makers, end-users

16:28:06 [wseltzer]

16:28:38 [James_M_Snell]
Ann: keyboard jumping, eh? Telling it to sit, stay and lay down isn't helping? You try giving it a treat? Playful keyboards are always a problem
16:28:43 [wseltzer]
... It would be great if we had a fully federated social Web.
16:29:50 [wseltzer]
... need to get all networks, consumer and enterprise talking together
16:29:58 [wseltzer]
... data of record and conversations in the same place
16:30:11 [wseltzer]
... easy access to conversations, wherever you and they are
16:30:15 [wseltzer]
... portable information
16:30:34 [wseltzer]
... be able to take your social capital where you like. you created it, it's your info.
16:30:46 [wseltzer]
... Pathways: think big or think incremental
16:30:54 [wseltzer]
... Incremental: build on existing standards
16:31:12 [wseltzer]
... Revolutionary: We understand use cases, build to fit
16:31:21 [wseltzer]
... Integrative: synthesize, extend, embrace
16:32:05 [wseltzer]
... Social Media has been the biggest communications revolution ever, since the WWW
16:32:32 [James_M_Snell]
The most significant hurdles to a "fully federated social Web" are not technical, they are political and commercial... it's not apparent that the most significant socnet providers *want* to federate
16:33:25 [wseltzer]
Ashok_Malhotra: If I'm a huge social network, why would I be interested in opening up?
16:33:39 [wseltzer]
Dion_Hinchcliff: We need a motivation for them too.
16:33:45 [hhalpin]
agreed James. There's not much interest in the consumer-facing space, but we're seeing huge interest in the business space.
16:34:04 [AnnBassetti]
Theo Havinis, SymptoLogic
16:34:28 [hhalpin]
So first large ecosystem that takes advantage of standardization could get a first-mover effect in the emerging market of integrating social with business processes.
16:34:46 [wseltzer]
Theo_Havinis: How can we control spam? Facebook is a closed group, that helps keep the spam out.
16:35:02 [wseltzer]
... There's value to closed networks, e.g. in health care.
16:35:12 [James_M_Snell]
then we're not talking about a "fully federated social web"... we're talking about building trusted connections between small private socnets
16:35:55 [wseltzer]
Dion_Hinchcliff: A key component of social has been that you don't need to pre-define users
16:36:04 [wseltzer]
... in some business processes, you do need to define the users.
16:36:53 [wseltzer]
Rajav: What activities are people doing? Communicaitons, product management? What do we want them to do?

16:37:23 [James_M_Snell]
Social in business == my identity at work extends out to everyone else I interact with in that capacity, including my connections, my activities, my contact details
16:37:56 [baojie]
baojie has joined #osfw3c
16:38:01 [wseltzer]
... we need open standards because academics from different disciplines won't all join the same networks.
16:38:25 [James_M_Snell]
or, my identity in [whatever community] extends out to everyone else I interact with as a member of that community
16:38:38 [wseltzer]
Ed_Krebs: Ford, we've got several different problems to solve
16:39:25 [wseltzer]
... we have three sets of scenarios. How do we manage reputatkion on the outside; inside collaboration; "inside and outside"
16:39:43 [wseltzer]
... How do we work with outside collaborators?
16:40:23 [wseltzer]

... Adam will speak about it. 85k people on it, inside the company. None of the commercial products worked for us, so we built our own.
16:41:05 [wseltzer]
... We need open connections in all directions
16:41:50 [wseltzer]
... how do we build those connections while looking at security, privacy, IP, etc.
16:42:34 [wseltzer]
Ellen_Feaney: Appfusions, we're a systems integrator. Atlassian, departmentally distributed
16:42:57 [wseltzer]

16:43:30 [wseltzer]
Mark_Weitzel: OpenSocial. How do we bring social context to where we're working.
16:43:40 [James_M_Snell]

16:45:00 [bret]
16:45:14 [wseltzer]

... social colloboration tools
16:49:50 [hhalpin]
... the social interations are necessary with customers/partners, not just sharing pictures
16:50:05 [hhalpin]
... transforming the use of social from a personal relationship to a *business* relationship
16:50:26 [hhalpin]
... its important as we're good with transactional business processes
16:50:28 [James_M_Snell]
Use case: I am an employee of Foo. In that capacity, I need to access an external community of partners and customers. When I do so, I need my identity as an employee of Foo to extend out to that community, including my reputation
16:50:34 [hhalpin]
... this only a small portion of busines
16:50:48 [hhalpin]
... most of the day-to-day interactions are non business transactions

16:52:01 [hhalpin]

17:40:36 [wseltzer]

... and 'social' is making connections you didn't have before
17:41:26 [AnnBassetti]

17:44:58 [wseltzer]

The reason to care about naming, I'd suggest, is to get the right people into the room for the right set of standards coordination.

17:58:12 [James_M_Snell]
"Social" is fairly close to being meaningless actually. We ought to be much more precise in our language. "Social" encompasses "Context" (Why am I here, What is my purpose), "Identity" (Who am I right now), "Network" (Who do I collaborate with), "Data" (What information is most relevant right now) and "Activity" (What have I done, What do I need to do)

18:10:55 [James_M_Snell]
As far as "what standards" are concerned... the critical immediate task is: How do we teach our tools to better recognize and understand Context and Identity. The standards in this area are lacking most. We have OAuth for addressing part of it, but the Web Platform itself does not offer any inherent support for Context and Identity.
18:11:21 [James_M_Snell]
which is why things like OpenSocial exist... to add in that notion of "Who am I"
18:12:30 [tantek]

18:52:35 [MichaelAlexander]

18:53:13 [gkellogg]
… This started collaboration on OpenGraph Protocol. Many customers were using a proprietary tool, but it needed to work across a variety of platforms.
18:53:32 [hhalpin]
note that Open Graph Protocol enables the Facebook Like Button
18:54:24 [gkellogg]
… CrushPath is designed as an advertising tool, but shifted to gaming business.
18:54:38 [gkellogg]
… Key is a "pitch"
18:55:12 [gkellogg]
… Example is a business profile, but could be for hiring engineers. Focused on allowing small business to get started with marketing.
18:56:08 [gkellogg]
… Considerations when building: users are not high-tech users, so they're wary of sharing information, so focus is on client-side integration.
18:57:14 [gkellogg]
… We wanted people to be able to login with sites they're familiar with, but concerned that it might be a "weird" experience.
18:57:35 [gkellogg]
… E.G., google will ask people to create a Plus profile, and they might not be familiar with that.
18:57:58 [gkellogg]
… We use Activity Streams everywhere, as it's a good design point.
18:58:32 [gkellogg]

Kelvin_Lawrence has joined #osfw3c
19:06:28 [gkellogg]
… We've been pushing other institutions to adopt OpenSocial, but there are challenges:
19:07:14 [gkellogg]
… Wake Forrest needed to get at researchers keywords; we came up with different ways of doing the same thing.
19:07:39 [gkellogg]
… The other area is on the use of the Linked Data standard; there was some perchption that it competes with OpenSocial, but they don't.
19:08:25 [gkellogg]
… LOD is supported by a lot of different solutions. Linked Open Data is like a machine readable version of a website; it's about expressing semantic data on the web
19:08:42 [tantek]
"t's about expressing semantic data on the web" (in a way that's much harder than microformats)
19:08:56 [gkellogg]
… VIVO is a competitive product based on RDF and gaining traction.
19:09:38 [gkellogg]
… We have OpenSocial on one hand and LOD on the other, how to put together?
19:09:55 [gkellogg]
… There are ways to express this in different RDF formats, but they're not simple.
19:10:19 [gkellogg]
… First thing we found was an RDF/XML to JSON converter, but it wasn't ideal and wasn't a standard.
19:10:38 [gkellogg]
… Meanwhile, JSON-LD is being developed that solves exactly these problems, and that's what we support now.
19:11:15 [gkellogg]
… Added an OSAPI.rdf adapter to allow easy extension of OpenSocial to JSON-LD/RDF
19:11:39 [gkellogg]
… JSON-LD allows the data model to be de-coupled from the API, this is a big deal.
19:12:05 [gkellogg]
… JSON is really easy to work with, and not intimidating developers is important.
19:12:27 [gkellogg]
… (VIVO's an extension of FOAF)
19:12:59 [gkellogg]
… Because JSON-LD is so easy to work with, we think more people will embrace the RDF data model

Did anybody catch the URL of his PDF on their inSite system from 2009?
19:17:30 [gkellogg]
… InSite built from scratch in Java and Apache. This allows users to work from use cases and turn them around, allowing Boeing to be responsive.
19:17:53 [gkellogg]
… It's integrated in with enterprise identity systems, meaning that you don't need to log in to use it.
19:18:16 [gkellogg]
… Because it's behind firewalls, content can be indexed from other systems.
19:18:49 [gkellogg]
… Boeing has large installations of many different collaborative technologies (SharePoint, Exchange, Wiki, ...)
19:19:20 [gkellogg]
… We're researching social collaboration on the factory floor; they don't have their own devices and share workstations.
19:19:36 [gkellogg]
… Culture much different than people working at desks.
19:20:11 [gkellogg]
… External customers want to use InSite for their own purposes.
19:20:51 [gkellogg]
… Challenges are to make InSite profiles available to other applications; want the user profile to travel with them as they move around the company.
19:21:01 [AnnBassetti]
it's not so much that external customers want to use inSite .. rather that we'd like to be able to 'socially' collaborate external using inSite
19:21:30 [gkellogg]
… Expertise profiles are not just user-declared, but can be asserted by peers.
19:21:48 [gkellogg]
… How to get out of sharePoint and into other systems?
19:22:44 [gkellogg]
… We've created a simple web framework to allow anyone to create presence information from anywhere. Through ActivityStreams and a profile widget that you can add anywhere.
19:23:08 [gkellogg]

19:27:46 [gkellogg]

19:27:58 [gkellogg]
… Leverage laptop to bridge the silos
19:28:28 [gkellogg]
… Eventually, leverage a cell phone to extend the brain (through access to information)
19:29:12 [gkellogg]
… Working from human-centered design. Things like RDF allow user to tell the computer what they want, but we also need to make sure knowledge is readable and sharable between users.
19:29:58 [gkellogg]
… developers favor data formats which are more readable (Turtle vs RDF/MXL)
19:30:20 [gkellogg]
… Exposing everything through URLs may be diffcult
19:30:45 [gkellogg]
… For example, we want to read our emails, headers are typically hidden.
19:31:33 [gkellogg]
… Just-in-time knowledge scheme.
19:31:50 [gkellogg]
… Better ways to access data than keyword search

… Tangible rewards and cost reduction
19:32:34 [gkellogg]
… Make it easy to do things and have an instant reward
19:32:50 [gkellogg]
… tweets are instant, blogs take much more time to be digested
19:33:43 [gkellogg]
… SCRUM process to allow issues to be solved in a short amount of time.
19:34:18 [gkellogg]
… spreadsheets are about the best tool created so far, we need to learn from this interaction method to give immediate rewards.
19:35:01 [gkellogg]
… Bottom-up growth scales
19:35:22 [gkellogg]
… E.g., twitter hash-tag is consensus based and extremely effective
19:35:48 [gkellogg]
… JSON and CSV are well adopted
19:36:03 [gkellogg]
… Looking at mailing lists and realtime conversation.
19:36:26 [gkellogg]
… Also look at common knowledge within a team; are we reaching consensus, or is this a fantasy of the project manager?
19:37:08 [gkellogg]
… Vision is extended memory on a phone or laptop, which is organized to be more useful than it is now.
19:37:31 [gkellogg]

Open Social has some solutions that could aply
21:42:49 [lloydfassett]
commentor: how we define a property graph standard. hesitant to modify RDF. There's a reason people have developed other standards.
21:43:01 [lloydfassett]
keeping it simple is important.
21:43:54 [lloydfassett]
Asok: we're starting to speak about what we should do? Once it's started we can discuss the options
21:44:27 [lloydfassett]
Commentor: Is there a more elegant way to deal with non-textual data?
21:45:41 [lloydfassett]
Ed Krebs: He's on board with roles. None of us wears a single hat. How do you do context switching? Does the system have some intelligence?
21:46:23 [tantek]
I'm a bit surprised anyone here is taking RDF seriously for anything. Actually not that surprised. But seriously?
21:46:28 [lloydfassett]
Jason got Ed to volunteer to contribute to working on it. Jason is starting around individual apps

is anyone who is "working on" something actually have something now? (URL?) or is this all hypothetical wishlist stuff?

21:48:46 [tantek]
so no - I dispute "exist" except maybe "on paper"
21:49:02 [James_M_Snell]
there are bits and pieces that exist today, but no one has a complete picture
21:49:02 [lloydfassett]

21:50:15 [lloydfassett]

21:50:21 [tantek]
James_M_Snell - as far as the public / open web is concerned - I see little to no actual deployment of ActivityStreams (and *I* myself have an Atom ActivityStream on my site)
21:50:48 [lloydfassett]
Mark Weitzel to Boeing: how do you deal with roles?
21:51:05 [tantek]
21:51:06 [James_M_Snell]
tantek: yes, adoption has been light on the public / open web.
21:51:10 [lloydfassett]
Boeing: they don't handle it or manage it. They have properties on the user.
21:51:22 [tantek]
if it's not adopted on the public web, it's a dead end technology
21:51:23 [lloydfassett]
They are all internal only roles to Insite (their app)
21:51:26 [James_M_Snell]
we have product that uses it, and I know others are using it
21:51:35 [James_M_Snell]
but it's mostly closed environments
21:51:42 [James_M_Snell]
walled gardens
21:51:45 [tantek]
plenty of ActiveX plugins in closed environments too
21:51:55 [lloydfassett]
Jason thought the Boeing process of handling expertise could be an interesting part of a role.
21:53:30 [lloydfassett]
AT&T: from a W3C perspective the way the internet works, people have relationships with advertisers and others. The scalability of managing roles is critical to making things work.
21:54:40 [lloydfassett]
TIBCO: talked about information flow between doctor and patient. The kinds of permissions each person can do in these roles are limited. Same as in enterprise applications.
21:55:10 [lloydfassett]
some information can be shared between doctors, it's different with other kinds of information and purposes.
21:55:34 [James_M_Snell]

Rawn Shawn: context can describe limits. We have roles and transactions in the process world. In the social world we know transactions exist, but there is a significant switching of contexts.
21:56:57 [Andrew_Mallis]
Roles are being referred to in relation to agency (transactional), but they also are impactful when we speak about identity.
21:57:28 [lloydfassett]
Jason: that is lesser of issues in the contexts we're looking at. We need to the right questions. We blundered into this problem by trying to solve a use case
21:57:53 [lloydfassett]
commentor: how would RDF and OWL fit into this? You can have two IRI's for the same thing.
21:58:26 [lloydfassett]

21:59:17 [lloydfassett]
Ellen: LDAP is a hidden db. you don't know who's role is what.
22:00:08 [lloydfassett]
Ellen: the lack of transparancy in AD and LDAP are the problem.
22:00:57 [lloydfassett]
Jason: I think it's possible that secret IT things may be coming to an end because the richness of profiles is creating significant pull for social.
22:01:35 [James_M_Snell]
Role = Identity + Context
22:01:55 [lloydfassett]
Wendy Seltser: Transparancy, roles, context. What could we be doing to reinforce the users ability to recognize when context has shifted. W3c usually does not promote a UI.
22:02:00 [James_M_Snell]
Role = Who am I at a given moment and Why
22:02:13 [lloydfassett]
maybe we could display to users how they are participating.
22:02:54 [lloydfassett]
Jason: I think about the implications of this in Germany. We get into interesting cultural challenges.
22:03:41 [lloydfassett]
AT&T: we have effective aims that focus our attention on a particular application, the browser. Too much focus on that, more on expectations to help people to undersand your graph.
22:04:02 [bret]
Why don't people use existing and widely deployed microformats instead of RDF?
22:04:25 [Andrew_Mallis]
Role relationships would be important. Teacher to Parent, Student to Student.
22:04:54 [lloydfassett]
eBay Collaboration: we built a collaboration and then it didn't work with BYOD. Why don't we have one browser so this pain will go away?
22:05:29 [wseltzer]
22:05:58 [lloydfassett]
AT&T: Open Web Testing platform is where should look. W3C is building a comprehensive system to validate how apps work in browsers.
22:06:56 [lloydfassett]
Jason: you just put fuel in your car. You don't wonder if it will work. We need standard testing.

22:10:09 [AnnBassetti]
haha, Tantek .. on the money
22:10:32 [tantek]
James_M_Snell - re: too many specs, not enough implementations. For this reason I don't believe in any more format efforts that do things with anything other than HTML.
22:10:41 [tantek]
JSON is syntactic sugar for devs
22:10:55 [tantek]
formats should be defined in HTML first, with a mapping to canonical JSON.
22:10:56 [bret]
bret has joined #osfw3c
22:11:08 [tantek]
defining formats in JSON first is putting the dev cart before the publisher horse
22:11:35 [bret]
very much so
22:11:40 [James_M_Snell]
tantek: I deal with a lot of third party integration that does not operate at the HTML/UI level
22:12:02 [James_M_Snell]
at that level, an HTML based data format doesn't make sense
22:12:18 [tantek]
more HTML publishers than all such third parties put together
22:12:19 [James_M_Snell]
but I ought to be able to take the same basic data model and apply it in both JSON or HTML
22:12:20 [tantek]
by far
22:12:27 [tantek]
any non-HTML effort is fighting a losing battle
22:12:27 [lloydfassett]
TIBCO: we use origin for security context within the browser. We shouldn't focus on language specific API's. The core is more around the payload, produced by Ruby and consumed by JS doesn't matter.
22:12:37 [tantek]
JSON should be side-effect of well structured HTML
22:12:38 [bret]
can someone put the irc log link into the topic?
22:12:39 [James_M_Snell]
tantek: so what? that doesn't make the non-html cases any less valid
22:12:40 [wseltzer]
Howard: Is personal/role context similar to origin-restriction? are we trying to help people protect themselves from context-phishing?
22:12:46 [lloydfassett]

let the user-agent tell the application who my network is based on what it knows about my identity and my role... all with my permission of course
22:17:45 [bret]
James_M_Snell: have you seem mozilla's social API?
22:18:21 [James_M_Snell]
bret: yes, bits and pieces of it at least. I need a refresher
22:18:33 [James_M_Snell]
bret: have their been recent updates?
22:18:46 [bret]
its the closes thing to what you are asking for that actually works right now
22:19:17 [bret]
yes, it started as F1 (an extension) and now is in firefox as a supported API. Facebook supports it, if you want to test it out
22:21:06 [Zakim]
Zakim has left #osfw3c
22:23:45 [James_M_Snell]
bret: that kind of functionality ought to be browser standard, with the data dependent on the users Identity, current context and role..
22:24:50 [James_M_Snell]
so if I'm on facebook or a fb connected site, returns my FB identity... but if I'm on IBM's Social business infrastructure and I'm using a third party integrated service, returns my IBM social identity
22:26:07 [Zakim]
Zakim has joined #osfw3c
22:26:37 [bret]
James_M_Snell: the API is open to anyone to use. Im sitting next to someone who is using it to post onto their own website
22:27:06 [bret]
In terms of getting it onto other browsers, its yet to be seen
22:27:25 [bret]
but its the closest to anything *like* a social api standard
22:27:29 [bret]
for browsers
22:27:30 [benwerd]
(I'm that person, and it really should be a cross-browser standard. Just Firefox for now though.)
22:28:59 [James_M_Snell]
bret: I'm more than willing to help do whatever I can to help promote and move that forward...
22:33:03 [James_M_Snell]
bret: btw, I have a working prototype using HTML5 custom elements and shadowdom to enable a API in chrome
22:33:16 [James_M_Snell]
Using polymer polyfill
22:33:53 [James_M_Snell]
import the custom element, drop <ibm-social /> onto the page, and the API is enabled.
22:37:16 [bret]
James_M_Snell: the developer behind the Social API from mozilla is here
22:37:53 [James_M_Snell]
bret: sadly I'm only "here" virtually.. participating via IRC and twitter only
22:38:10 [bret]
22:38:33 [bret]
I don't think he is on his computer atm.
22:40:17 [James_M_Snell]
We need to take some time to reconcile things like the mozsocial manifest, handlers, web intents, web finger etc... so user-agents can learn to better understand their users and the services they use
22:40:41 [James_M_Snell]
then how to make that info available to apps through a standard browser api

a browser feature that website can access
22:47:10 [bret]
or ask to
22:47:22 [James_M_Snell]
browser then works with the user to determine identity, context, etc
22:47:53 [James_M_Snell]
right now, if an apps have to do all the identity stuff themselves

e/me let me remind EvanP it's his turn to scribe
22:53:03 [bret]
How is the json-ld data typically stored? Is it a mirror of html content, like rss and atom typically are?
22:53:09 [tantek]
bret - who knows
22:53:42 [bret]
Any examples in the wild that I can go look at?
22:53:59 [tantek]
bret - good question
22:54:16 [bret]
json obviously, is all over the place
22:54:25 [bret]
but this -ld extension
22:54:29 [hhalpin]
As fror the storage, I'd hope it would be stored in some graphstore like Mongo but not sure how messy this is. Seems like starting a keyword with (at) sign makes life a bit tricky.
22:54:57 [tantek]
hhalpin - any real world examples of such? or is this is all hopeful handwaving?

I think
22:56:21 [James_M_Snell]
don't get hung up on the -ld extension... focus on the json part
22:56:31 [James_M_Snell]
any json can be json-ld depending on how you process it
22:56:42 [aaronpk]
why is this different from returning HTML info and using <a> tags to link HTML documents together?
22:56:49 [bret]
i see that -ld is an effort to standardize vocabulary, but for what
22:57:02 [James_M_Snell]
json-ld to me means making use of a common data model
22:57:17 [evanpro]
Graph definition allows specifying graph of JSON data
22:57:20 [bret]
but how is it stored/accessed?
22:57:39 [James_M_Snell]
well... for anything really.. using json-ld as a bridge, for instance, I can model data model in activity streams json
22:57:41 [evanpro]
JSON-LD includes syntax for rich data types
22:57:45 [bret]
and is it a replica of a web page? database?
22:58:05 [evanpro]
Possible to express named graphs
22:58:17 [evanpro]
Basic system is RDF
22:58:33 [evanpro]
Example: Activity Streams 2.0 which is JSON-LD
22:58:44 [hhalpin]
tantek - JSON-LD is still pretty new - thus, I think it falls in "handwaving" category. But it is already getting traction from Google etc.,
22:58:56 [evanpro]
There are standard transformations between JSON and XML versions
22:58:59 [James_M_Snell]
concrete example... {"@context": {"objectType":"@type", "person": "", "displayName": ""}, "objectType": "person", "displayName": "Joe"}
22:59:08 [evanpro] has more information
22:59:17 [tantek]
James_M_Snell - yes that's an example. nothing concrete about it
22:59:28 [tantek]
anything you can find anyone publishing at actual URLs on the open web?

what is google doing with json-ld
22:59:49 [tantek]
bret - I'm calling BS unless someone provides a URL. [citation needed]
23:00:09 [evanpro]
Ed is using the term PubSubHub to mean a different thing from PubSubHubbub
23:00:16 [evanpro]
Call it Ed's middleware
23:00:19 [tantek]
"are you trying to say PubSubHubbub?" "No, I'm saying PubSubHub"

(nervous laughter)
23:00:40 [evanpro]
hhalpin: I don't know if I set myself up as scribe correctly
23:00:45 [bret]
23:00:55 [hhalpin]
Given that JSON-LD is just JSON, Mongo/Couchbase that can take native JSON can also take JSON-LD.
23:01:04 [hhalpin]
That is how I would store it at least.
23:01:24 [James_M_Snell]
tantek: I've got this mental image of you as the grumpy old troll, lol ;-) ...
23:01:25 [evanpro]
Example of PubSubHub: "Flip Style mobile reader"
23:01:51 [bret]
What part of fliboard? the fold in the middle part or the rss reader?
23:01:51 [tantek]
James_M_Snell - asking for citations is trolling?
23:01:58 [James_M_Snell]
tantek: I'm being silly
23:02:01 [hhalpin]
23:02:07 [evanpro]
Uses information from business systems, which are sent to an enterprise social system
23:02:09 [bret]
thanks hhalpin
23:02:09 [tantek]
thx hhalpin
23:02:39 [evanpro]
... which in turn drives a mobile reader
23:02:55 [hhalpin]
I'm not sure if there is *actually* momentum for JSON-LD. Obviously there is for JSON. And obviously graph-store dataformat need to be standardized. Nonetheless, the RDF data-model may or may not be perfect fit.
23:03:08 [hhalpin]
I'd like to hear various opinions on this about how it is.
23:03:31 [tantek]
hhalpin - yet to see an actual use case that needs JSON-LD above and beyond "just JSON"
23:03:34 [hhalpin]
for end-developers re storing/using JSON-LD vs. just sticking to JSON vs. using whatever else.
23:03:36 [bret]
The beauty of JSON was that it was already there before the name was applied
23:03:45 [tantek]
and while you're doing "just JSON" - you can publish that trivially with HTML+microformats2
23:03:51 [hhalpin]
I think the idea of JSON-LD is just sticking URIs into JSON
23:03:54 [evanpro]
They push information about car part availability into their activity stream
23:04:10 [tantek]
hhalpin - funny, sticking URLs into HTML seems to be much more well understood/adopted.
23:04:15 [hhalpin]
The trick is via the @context, which I guess can just be defaulted in some way (perhaps in spec).
23:04:41 [evanpro]
And potentially other application actions
23:04:42 [evanpro]
Within the mobile reader they want to provide social actions
23:04:51 [tantek]
hhalpin - sounds like the classic, don't understand the problem? add a layer of abstraction (@context).
23:05:00 [aaronpk]
my HTML has a JSON representation:
23:05:04 [evanpro]
e.g. approve or deny a purchase order
23:05:24 [hhalpin]
JSON-LD is just adding URIs+links to JSON, which sounds sensible - so ideally, JSON can then be a data-version of the HTML. However, this does hit the maintenance issue that tantek correctly brings up and fixes re microfoamts.
23:06:00 [hhalpin]
the question is whether or not it makes sense to push stripped down HTML with markup that is easily made into JSON (i.e. microformats) or just ship the data around direclty (JSON, JSON-LD)
23:06:02 [evanpro]
Ed's middleware ("PubSubHub") provides identity, and can connect to the enterprise social platform
23:06:15 [tantek]
hhalpin - exactly. much easier to maintain your data *once* in the HTML+microformats2 which automatically generates JSON, than maintain it *twice* in HTML and JSONLD.
23:06:17 [hhalpin]
I'm OK with either to be honest, but would like to hear more pro and against each approach.
23:06:29 [hhalpin]
Yes, I have long-agreed with your opinion on that tantek.
23:06:44 [evanpro]
Includes some roles and access control
23:06:45 [bret]
aaronpk: can you add an object with a key pair that describes how the json was generated (IE "generated with mf2php from my html")
23:06:47 [tantek]
hhalpin - stripped down HTML with markup that is easily made into JSON (i.e. microformats) works and easier to debug in browsers *today*.
23:06:55 [aaronpk]
bret: look at the bottom :)
23:06:55 [James_M_Snell]
json-ld let's us very easily map the same microdata data in html and json without jumping through a bunch of hoops
23:06:56 [evanpro]
"You can share to here but not to here"
23:07:04 [tantek]
hhalpin - why is it so hard to communicate the maintenance problem?
23:07:14 [bret]
23:07:19 [tantek]
my guess is that folks advocating duplicate data have very little experience with actual maintenance of real world content/systmes.

similar to web intents or web actions or soap

23:14:50 [James_M_Snell]
OpenSocial calls this "Embedded Experiences" .. has their own model for it
23:15:01 [James_M_Snell]
that needs to be reconciled
23:15:23 [evanpro]
Goals of Action schema:
23:15:28 [evanpro]
Rich set of nouns
23:15:31 [evanpro]
23:15:37 [tantek]
schema is non-starter due to lack of RF patent for consuming schema

23:16:10 [evanpro]
23:16:20 [evanpro]
verbs are types on actions
23:16:34 [evanpro]
They have arguments - semantic roles for the verb
23:17:35 [James_M_Snell]
tantek: yeah, that's definitely a problem
23:17:43 [evanpro]
They involved linguists in the process
23:17:44 [tantek]
you have rights to publish only
23:17:45 [tantek]
read the TOS
23:17:51 [evanpro]
And developed a big hierarchy of verbs
23:18:00 [tantek]

that's a lot easier than just saying "i bought outliers on amazon"
23:20:04 [James_M_Snell]

James_M_Snell - SEO spammers use schema
23:23:04 [tantek]
there's no ecosystem there
23:23:09 [tantek]
because no one else is allowed to consume
23:23:10 [James_M_Snell]
for some, is a non-starter, for others, {insert data model name here} is a non-starter
23:23:11 [tantek]

whether JSONLD, RDFa, microformats etc.
23:23:59 [tantek]
for publishing/consuming/parsing etc.
23:24:05 [tantek]
so this is a very different problem
23:25:03 [evanpro]
OPENi framework expects consumers to hold own data in "cloudlets"
23:25:35 [evanpro]
developers can use data based on consumer opt-in
23:25:59 [evanpro]
And put them all in a single structure
23:26:12 [evanpro]
OPENi classified multiple APIs
23:26:23 [James_M_Snell]
tantek: yes, my point is that whatever standardized social apis we have, or whatever "standardized tools" are provided, they need to be independent of the data model, and independent of any possible licensing issues those models are tied to
23:26:24 [tantek]
James_M_Snell, anyone using or advocating for schema-org examples/markup/vocabulary is supporting a Google patents-reserved position. Not open.

Activity Streams 2.0 fixes some things and aligns with JSON-LD
23:52:41 [evanp]
probably some alignment
23:53:07 [James_M_Snell]
via JSON-LD, you can use the AS 2.0 syntax to represent defined concepts
23:53:10 [evanp]
(hard when I'm asking questions and scribing at the same time)
23:53:18 [James_M_Snell]
evanp: understood
23:53:43 [James_M_Snell]
but Activity Streams 2.0 !=

you can use AS 2.0 without *any* reference to JSON-LD or
