15:15:30 <Yigal> bhyland: from poll -- 14 people can make f2f, 1 cannot
15:16:57 <Zakim> + +
15:17:18 <Yigal> bhyland: will look into results of poll further
15:17:20 <GeraldSteeman> My "no" is really a "I'm going to try to get to DC, but not sure yet."
15:17:29 <Yigal> sandro: looks like won't be better to move f2f to dc
15:18:10 <Yigal> sandro: default would seem to be galway
15:18:34 <Yigal> sandro: details would determine if we make dc secondary site
15:18:39 <rreck> i responded but it still regards me a non-responder
15:19:18 <Yigal> TOPIC: f2f planning (should have come earlier)
15:19:30 <sandro> rreck, it has your response, it's just cacheing too much in showing you.
15:19:53 <olyerickson> zakim, who is on mute? 
15:19:53 <Zakim> I don't understand your question, olyerickson.

15:20:57 <sandro>
15:20:57 <Yigal> bhyland: worked on getting community directory on w3c domain. it's now up.
15:21:31 <Biplav> Biplav has joined #gld
15:22:14 <Yigal> bhyland: wants more input from those with relevant experience, so doesn't consider it done
15:22:29 <Yigal> bhyland: 5000 hits within short time
15:23:18 <Yigal> bhyland: ~6 people asked for logins
15:23:50 <rreck> i have an approach but dont know how it could run on w3 machines
15:23:53 <Yigal> bhyland: still figuring out how to best handle that matter
15:24:10 <rreck> i can discuss it with you offline. it should be pretty simple to do.
15:24:24 <olyerickson> FYI, David Wood's email announcement:
15:24:37 <Yigal> bhyland: opinions and thoughts on this are welcome.
15:24:59 <rreck> i can talk to you at Semtech if you want.
15:25:30 <bhyland> q?
15:25:33 <rreck> i have thoughts but dont want to digress
15:25:50 <olyerickson> How may subscribers on the pubic-lod list? 
15:26:04 <olyerickson> s/pubic/pubic/
15:26:04 <PhilA2> I really like the directory and I'm looking forward to seeing it evolve
15:26:20 <olyerickson> s/pubic/public/
15:26:50 <Yigal> HadleyBeeman: It's helpful to have a sense of who's involved. More important to be clear to outside world about our goals and accomplishments.
15:26:52 <olyerickson> +1 to directory concept, but it can't be the only thing
15:27:08 <rreck> +1 hadley's idea of a plan
15:27:17 <olyerickson> the break-out topics are the "small conversations" that held build the community
15:28:03 <olyerickson> zakim, unmute me
15:28:03 <Zakim> olyerickson should no longer be muted
15:28:09 <olyerickson> q+
15:29:21 <Yigal> HadleyBeeman: Need to be clear on who our target audience is, and that we're building something that will be picked up and used.
15:31:19 <Yigal> bhyland: Believes best practices is for people who want to get started. It's not targeted at information managers, at department and CIO level.
15:31:47 <olyerickson> q?
15:32:01 <sandro> q+
15:32:18 <PhilA2> ack olyerickson
15:33:25 <PhilA2> q+
15:33:56 <Cory-c> Cory-c has joined #gld
15:34:44 <HadleyBeeman> Point of clarification: are we reassessing our charter, or checking on details/emphases within it?
15:34:57 <bhyland> olyerickson: I'm concerned that the work of the GLD WG is too narrowly focused.  We're not focusing on the low hanging fruit, the people who want to supply 1 star data & get it discovered.  Has to do with data set catalog, listing data sets, using other forms of semantic markup.  
15:36:09 <olyerickson> I hear you ;) 
15:36:17 <Yigal> bhyland: WG focus is on explaining the value proposition.
15:36:41 <Biplav> Sorry for ignorance, but what is ADMS?
15:36:47 <bhyland> This working group is focused on 4 & 5 star Linked Data and clearly articulating the value proposition, along with best practices to achieve that.
15:36:55 <bhyland> q?
15:37:12 <PhilA2> acl sandro
15:37:18 <PhilA2> ack sandro
15:37:45 <olyerickson> sandro: GLD WG is about the how, not the why
15:37:50 <Yigal> sandro: Key thing we should do is the "how" not the "why". We need to decide how to do it in cases where that has not been determined.
15:37:56 <Biplav> What does the acronym ADMS stand for?
15:37:57 <bhyland> Sandro: I think the group should be the "how", not the why.  We have decide & document the *hows*, especially when not documented.
15:38:26 <mhausenblas> re ADMS, see
15:38:29 <Yigal> bhyland: The areas she's agreed to facilitate are community directory and best practices.
15:39:18 <Yigal> bhyland: NIEM is XML vocabulary for allowing local agencies to exchange information.
15:39:33 <Cory-c> and one that can map to RDF
15:40:01 <rreck> I am interested in NIEM and RDF
15:40:07 <HadleyBeeman> q+
15:40:18 <Yigal> Cory-c: Will map easily to RDF. Working on proof of concept.
15:40:33 <bhyland> NIEM = National Information Exchange Model, see
15:40:57 <bhyland> Per the website, "NIEM makes it possible for organizations to share critical data; as a result, people are empowered to make informed decisions that improve efficiency and help organizations advance their missions."
15:41:05 <Yigal> Cory-c: If people are interested in RDF representation, would like to get together with them.
15:41:29 <rreck> please include me
15:41:32 <rreck> Darth
15:41:35 <Biplav> I will be interested

15:42:22 <olyerickson> Darth: zakim, I am your father...
15:42:33 <PhilA2> zakim, mute Yigal
15:42:33 <Zakim> Yigal should now be muted

15:46:00 <Yigal> PhilA2: ADMS is concept scheme not namespace.
15:46:18 <Cory-c> I would like to add that there is a strong push for NIEM to expand past the U.S., this is going on now.
15:46:48 <rreck> i did GJXDM too
15:47:05 <olyerickson> zaim, unmute me.
15:47:12 <olyerickson> zakim, unmute me.

15:47:27 <Yigal> bhyland: PhilA and Cory, will one take an action item to form a task group to work on this?
15:47:36 <olyerickson> I'm like to be involved in that
15:47:41 <olyerickson> q+
15:47:50 <PhilA2> q-
15:48:36 <olyerickson> I suggest we start by adding "and ADMS" where ever "DCAT" is mentioned...
15:48:36 <Yigal> bhyland: Just start modifying a wiki page, put together an outline, call a meeting with the task force using zakim.
15:49:01 <rreck> i think an initial  paragraph that scopes the topic helps. (my 2 cents)
15:49:51 <Yigal> bhyland: Happy to be a catalyst.
15:50:11 <cygri> q+
15:50:22 <bhyland> ACTION: Cory-c agreed to facilitate NIEM discussion and get outline started working with bhyland.

15:59:31 <Yigal> Biplav: Are we considering recommending how to use info extraction to discover vocabularies?
15:59:34 <Yigal> bhyland: No.
16:00:16 <olyerickson> That's eGov IG stuff
16:00:22 <olyerickson> (I believe)
16:00:30 <PhilA2> +1 to olyerickson
16:00:31 <Yigal> Biplav: There are cities that have opened up their data. Will we have a deliverable that is a guideline on a roadmap for this?
16:00:46 <Yigal> bhyland: Best practices is supposed to do that.
16:01:28 <cygri> +1 to olyerickson. that's my understanding too

16:01:54 <Zakim> olyerickson should no longer be muted
16:01:55 <Yigal> bhyland: "Roadmap" is a synonym for what we're contemplating. Should be useful, not a stagnant spec that doesn't get updated.
16:02:29 <bhyland> q?
16:03:15 <Yigal> bhyland: Can we assign Biplav an action item to deal with this?
16:03:27 <Yigal> Biplav: Yes.
16:04:09 <Yigal> BartvanLeeuwen: Would like to be more involved, looking for how he can be of practical help.
