14:20:59 <PhilA2> olyerickson: Regarding the provenance discussion... I'm trying to understand what the issue is? Was Paul concerned that there are lots of parallel efforts on provenance, or people, or what?

14:21:34 <annew> annew has joined #gld
14:21:52 <olyerickson> bhyland: explanation of PROV question
14:22:08 <PhilA2> bhyland: AIUI, Paul in particular, they invented "agent" and it has a lot of people attributes. We're up to 4 different ways to capture people-related info just from W3C
14:22:12 <olyerickson> ... up to 4 ways to describe people
14:22:21 <olyerickson> ... need to coordinate
14:22:38 <olyerickson> ... bhyland tasked with bringing together the various parties

14:24:49 <olyerickson> George: many esp govt would like to put a "stake in the ground"
14:24:54 <bhyland> To remind people who were present last week (and weren't), Boris gave a great talk on work on map4rdf, see
14:24:56 <olyerickson> ... poll the group?
14:25:30 <olyerickson> PhilA2: Trying to notice what is going on, while being concerned about strengthing this group

14:27:30 <bhyland> q+
14:27:34 <olyerickson> ... shouldn't write our own recommendation
14:27:42 <olyerickson> ... there are "smarter" people to do that

14:28:02 <PhilA2> ref: Open Geospatial Consortium
14:28:03 <olyerickson> ... but maybe not...
14:28:08 <luisBermudez> q+
14:28:26 <olyerickson> George: If there *is* energy, there is interest in the community
14:28:40 <olyerickson> ... there's lots of innovation going on in this area

14:28:57 <olyerickson> bhyland: BP doc focusing on what SHOULD be done
14:29:02 <olyerickson> ... BP not about "how"
14:29:16 <olyerickson> ... rec'd of vocabs is new ground for W3C
14:29:53 <PhilA2> I'm the last person to object to FOAF!

14:32:21 <PhilA2> ack me

14:33:17 <sandro> q?
14:33:40 <sandro> q+ to ask Phil in what sense one vocab can use another
14:33:41 <bhyland> @PhilA2 thanks for clarifying/reminding me re: ISA People & FOAF embrace 
14:33:50 <olyerickson> ... thought question: Will FOAF be around next year? 
14:34:12 <sandro> DanG, the reference was to Dan Brickley, co-parent of FOAF.
14:35:43 <danbri> while we're on topic, can I draw attention to some other People vocab things from this week?
14:35:44 <bhyland> @george, what URL would you like me to add to agenda from HR14 proposal discussion?
14:35:46 <danbri> see!forum/opensocial-and-gadgets-spec  
14:35:48 <olyerickson> BenediktKaempgen: Talked to supervisor, tells us that that community has tried to consolidate, question of what GLD process will be for integrating in ???geo (neogeo?)
14:36:13 <olyerickson> Thanks to sandro for the big push last night
14:36:13 <bhyland> +1 thanks to Sandro
14:36:18 <danbri> opensocial is a tech for making social networks, and is linked to PortableContacts, a vcard-based addressbook format. opensocial people are wondering how to address new requirements for modelling organizations, scientific info etc.
14:36:24 <gatemezi> s/???geo/neogeo
14:36:37 <olyerickson> um
14:36:38 <danbri> e.g .!topic/opensocial-and-gadgets-spec/g3NyGn-8Avs
14:36:49 <olyerickson> is there an announcement that some of us are missing? 
14:37:07 <olyerickson> sandro: What does it mean for one vocab to "use" another
14:37:13 <danbri> neogeo ~ ?
14:38:15 <olyerickson> PhilA2: Issue of alignment of e.g. foaf:Person with equivalent, etc
14:38:45 <olyerickson> ... See PhilA2 blog post (today)
14:39:09 <olyerickson> ... motivated PhilA2 to think foaf should be retired...
14:39:20 <gatemezi> @LuisBermudez: could you know any triple store that have implemented part of geoSPARQL requirements?
14:39:44 <olyerickson> sandro:  can't recommend The Government to use vocab that can't be used in perpetuity
14:39:50 <PhilA2> smotivated PhilA2 to think foaf should be retired.../motivated PhilA2 to think a day may come when foaf could be retired.../

14:42:03 <bhyland> q+
14:42:09 <bhyland> q+
14:42:21 <sandro> q+ to disagree with olyerickson 
14:42:51 <olyerickson> bhyland: It's a concept called "social responsibility"
14:43:14 <olyerickson> ... when you publish "content" you are making a commitment or 'social contract'
14:43:35 <olyerickson> ... for the foreseeable future
14:43:48 <olyerickson> ... BP must educate/"warn" adopters
14:44:15 <olyerickson> ... vocabs should be from authoritative sources that make commitment
14:44:24 <bhyland> zakim, who is speaking?
14:44:33 <olyerickson> sandro: doesn't agree
14:44:35 <Zakim> bhyland, listening for 10 seconds I heard sound from the following: George_Thomas (5%), olyerickson (9%), Sandro (57%)
14:44:41 <Zakim> - +
14:44:56 <olyerickson> ... W3C makes a commitment to e.g. DCAT
14:45:21 <George> q?
14:45:25 <George> ack bhyland 
14:45:25 <olyerickson> ... details will change, there is a process and W3C stands behind it
14:45:28 <George> ack sandro 
14:45:28 <Zakim> sandro, you wanted to disagree with olyerickson
14:45:29 <bhyland> ack bhyland
14:46:23 <PhilA2> olyerickson: You, Sandro, were right to disagree with my words
14:46:33 <PhilA2> olyerickson: An organisation needs to know what it is adopting
14:46:35 <bhyland> Sandro: Gov'ts should be able to count on key vocabs, such as DCAT, in perpetuity.
14:46:53 <PhilA2> ... e.g. the current version of DCAT, recognising that it may evolve
14:47:12 <PhilA2> olyerickson: They need to recognise that by using a vocan they become part of that community
14:47:27 <sandro> +1 olyerickson  Yes, people adopting a tech become part of the stewardship community, when things work well.    That's sustainable.
14:47:32 <bhyland> johnerickson: Gov't need to recognize their role as stewards of vocabs [and data sets] that they publish.  
14:47:34 <PhilA2> ... they can't wine about the fact that current browsers don't working with HTML1 any more
14:47:40 <sandro> q?
14:47:53 <olyerickson> we are in fervent agreement
14:47:59 <bhyland> zakim, who is on the call?

14:48:07 <olyerickson> (if not using the most articulate language)
14:48:22 <olyerickson> sandro: brings us back to foaf
14:48:59 <mhausenblas> Michael: I have to apologise, need to run now (need to do some fire-fighting, unforeseen incident that came up …) 
14:49:02 <olyerickson> ... might have a situation where W3C doesn't control the namespace, dereferencing, etc
14:49:16 <olyerickson> ... need to ensure namespace is part of the community stewardship
14:49:27 <PhilA2> q+
14:49:30 <olyerickson> ... community needs to have control
14:49:43 <olyerickson> PhilA2: agrees with sandro
14:50:24 <sandro> sandro: We should only use namespaces for which we have en enforcable commitment to respect some legitimate stewardship/community process
14:50:29 <olyerickson> ... "DanBri under a bus" problem has created adoption problems for foaf in the past, seems to be resolved now
14:51:15 <olyerickson> ... key issue is foaf:Person and allow imaginary people

14:52:13 <olyerickson> George: any views/thoughts? 
14:52:18 <danbri> btw ... if GLD have expectations re what long-term preservation commitments you'd like from, do please write them down and pass them along 
14:52:19 <olyerickson> sandro: (laughs) 
14:52:26 <olyerickson> ... gave up in 2003
14:52:55 <olyerickson> ... proposed 303 but has given up 
14:53:44 <gatemezi> I was reading also this post of Jenni
14:53:49 <PhilA2> olyerickson: I've been watching in the way you watch a NASCAR race expecting a crash. A real concern is implementation efficiency
14:54:22 <PhilA2> ... there are existential issues but the practical ones are perhaps more key - redirection, caching and so on
14:54:45 <PhilA2> ... there are some proposals around 3xx and 200/207
14:55:02 <PhilA2> ... I really haven't seen a convergence
14:55:15 <olyerickson> Current state: Open for proposals

14:59:11 <olyerickson> not(sandro) : interested in concern over performance
14:59:32 <olyerickson> ... are there designs that deliver performance which doesn't violate semantics of 303
14:59:54 <George> q?
14:59:55 <olyerickson> how to engage: write it up, submit
15:00:11 <bhyland> ack bhyland
