15:16:56 <JeremyCarroll> Topic: JSON
15:17:20 <manu1>
15:18:05 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: presents where we are at
15:18:23 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: TF telecon report back
15:18:44 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: TF agrees that a JSON format would be a good thing
15:19:01 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: sense of urgency was low-to-moderate
15:19:23 <AndyS> --> JSON format for SPARQL results
15:20:15 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: half group were concerned about govt and enterprise 
15:20:47 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: half more concerned abotu independent developers
15:21:48 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: we need to make sure that we keep as many people on board as possible
15:21:58 <JeremyCarroll> Pat: why do motivations matter?
15:22:20 <davidwood> q?
15:22:21 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: there are technical consequences given motivations, e.g. APIs vs publishing formats

15:22:56 <zwu2> is it possible to build adapters/bridges between two different RDF/JSON serialization formats?
15:23:11 <webr3> everything is possible :)
15:23:35 <zwu2> is there an efficient way then?
15:23:52 <AndyS> zwu2 - RDF?
15:24:17 <zwu2> RDF/JSON, andy
15:23:29 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: doamin of interest, and use cases, and technical solutions are all interrelated
15:23:53 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: if we do not have enough people interested in a topic then we will not be able to pursue such a technical soln
15:24:18 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: there was discussion concerning round tripping
15:24:41 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: round tripping - can data that is GET ted then be POST ed back
15:24:46 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: without data loss
15:25:19 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: it seemed clear when people spoke what they wanted, but not clear that there was consensus in TF
15:25:28 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: issue of premature standardization
15:26:00 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: this is a strong concern, unclear whether some JSON solutions will work, 
15:26:08 <ww> JSON-UL?
15:26:41 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: there is general unfamiliarity with some formats, cf: ACTION-20
15:27:08 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: many motivations behind different formats are currently not well understood by many members of group
15:27:50 <webr3> q+
15:28:06 <JeremyCarroll> David: can we use use cases to understand different people's preferences

15:31:25 <OlivierCorby> OlivierCorby has joined #rdf-wg
15:32:17 <sandro> q?
15:32:22 <JeremyCarroll> Richard: agrees that grouping use cases will help
15:33:02 <JeremyCarroll> David (as Talis rep, not chair): there is no internal consensus about this issue, but there are strong opinions
15:33:24 <JeremyCarroll> David (...): 1 opinion is that an API is needed, otherwise format is doomed
15:33:38 <webr3> David, can you clarify what you mean by "API" (api as in tooling for consumers) or "API" as in linked-data-api ?
15:33:39 <JeremyCarroll> David (...): 2 opinion is triple format is crucial
15:33:48 <Guus> Guus has joined #rdf-wg
15:34:13 <JeremyCarroll> David (...): as rep it is hard to map different people's opinions onto use cases
15:34:42 <JeremyCarroll> David: Guus prefers a bottom up approach
15:35:12 <JeremyCarroll> David: Guus wants minimal approach, adding features with motivation
15:35:30 <webr3> David, next q - by "starting point" did you mean a simple object then add, or a simple triple, then add?
15:35:36 <davidwood> q?
15:35:49 <davidwood> webr3: yes
15:35:58 <sandro> url for RDF API spec?
15:36:11 <davidwood> webr3: oops :)  I meant a simple object.
15:36:13 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: we would like to see more people on APIs in JavaScript or Python
15:36:25 <webr3> Sandro,
15:36:31 <webr3> davidwood, then +1, i agree
15:36:37 <davidwood> sandro: The LOD API spec is at
15:36:39 <ww> yes.
15:36:45 <davidwood> q?
15:36:52 <davidwood> ack sandro
15:36:52 <Zakim> sandro, you wanted to talk about the matrix
15:36:59 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: who is shipping a product requiring JSON technologies
15:37:39 <JeremyCarroll> Sandro: I have a hard time understanding use cases - mix of abstraction and concrete 
15:37:55 <JeremyCarroll> Sandro: I like the matrix
15:38:18 <manu1>
15:38:22 <JeremyCarroll> Sandro: we are trying to get data from producer to consumer, this gives a square on matrix
15:38:43 <JeremyCarroll> Sandro: each square sort of corresponds to a use case
15:39:24 <sandro>
15:39:24 <ww> mischat: the data store is rdf. the user interface is json/resty thing and web developers that know about rdf are hard to come by. so need to translate json i/o to rdf i/o
15:39:26 <JeremyCarroll> some consumers want RDF, some don't
15:39:43 <JeremyCarroll> some consumers are happy to use a library, others are not happy to use a library
15:39:49 <AZ> AZ has joined #rdf-wg
15:39:56 <ww> which we've already done in an application-specific way but it would be nice to have a more standard/consistent way
15:41:18 <JeremyCarroll> sandro: if people are not rpepared to use library, then encoding has to be really simple
15:41:42 <JeremyCarroll> sandro: this is where Talis' products are at - simple encoding
15:41:54 <ww> as an example: our franken-simpleish-json:
15:42:48 <JeremyCarroll> David: is there a difference between librarys or APIs
15:42:54 <JeremyCarroll> Sandro: no
15:43:07 <davidwood> ack JeremyCarroll
15:43:16 <webr3> ww, why does it flip between qnames/curies and simple keys? (type / "dc:isPartOf")
15:43:20 <JeremyCarroll> Zakim, unmute JeremyCarroll
15:43:20 <Zakim> JeremyCarroll should no longer be muted
15:44:29 <ww> webr3: the algorithm is, is there a property on the python object that is explicitly modelled and we know a priori in an application-specific way what predicate it is? then just use the property name
15:44:44 <ww> 2. do we have a known prefix we can use? use that (e.g. curie)
15:44:51 <ww> 3. use <uri>
15:45:18 <webr3> ww, do you see (2) as being important or would 1+3 be acceptable?

15:46:13 <Zakim> JeremyCarroll should now be muted
15:46:15 <davidwood> ack manu1
15:46:15 <Zakim> manu1, you wanted to discuss really simple encoding.
15:46:55 <JeremyCarroll> Jeremy: in TQ's client server protocol, issues to do with client side caching and temporal semantics - to make it neutral to programmer as to whether a triple is locally cached or involves server round trip
15:47:12 <ww> webr3: let's follow up on the list
15:48:02 <AndyS> q+

15:59:45 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: lots of URIs for identifying thins
16:00:05 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: need someway to express data which web developers are comfortable with
16:00:21 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: turtle etc are way outside comfort zone of developers discussed
16:00:36 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: needs to be as easy as twitter or facebook API
16:00:48 <ivan> q-
16:00:52 <Zakim> -OlivierCorby
16:00:54 <JeremyCarroll> Manu: API can be converted into triples, but can be used directly
16:00:58 <sandro> manu: We want to provide an API where people who care about triples can get them, but others can use the API directly, where it just looks like json.
16:01:16 <zwu2> q+
16:01:21 <davidwood> ack cygri
16:01:23 <sandro> (very clear at the end, Manu, thanks.)
16:01:40 <JeremyCarroll> Richard: we have RDF data in a SPARQL store
16:01:51 <Zakim> +OlivierCorby
16:01:53 <JeremyCarroll> Richard: we want to build one or more apps that use this data
16:01:58 <zwu2> zakim, unmute me
16:01:58 <Zakim> zwu2 should no longer be muted
16:02:18 <JeremyCarroll> Richard: we want to develop these apps in JavaScript because it makes development process simpler
16:02:50 <JeremyCarroll> Richard: we currently do simple select queries with JSON results format from SPARQL
16:03:05 <JeremyCarroll> Richard: processing this is straightforward
16:04:01 <ivan> zakim, who is noisy?
16:04:11 <Zakim> ivan, listening for 10 seconds I heard sound from the following: 24 (28%), David (44%), tomayac_ (26%), manu1 (5%), cygri (20%), ww (5%)
16:04:42 <sandro> cygri:We want something the encodes the output of SPARQL CONSTRUCT or DESCRIBE in a simple and predictable way for the Javascript developer who is already familiar with RDF.  They know SPARQL and can think in triples.
16:05:21 <webr3> Nathan: I have two distinct groups of publishers (1) those who have rdf-triples behind the scenes (2) those who have non-rdf objects behind the scenes | both of those groups want to target both non-rdf developers, and rdf-developers. This creates two core needs: (a) a way to give rdf-triples as simple-objects to non-rdf developers (b) a way to give simple-objects as rdf to rdf-developers
16:05:22 <webr3> Nathan: distinct from that I see two other cases (c) dumping rdf as json as a leightweight triple format (d) sparql (which I see as orthogonal, is sparql engine on client or server?)
16:05:26 <JeremyCarroll> Richard: but we also want to use things like DESCRIBE or CONSTRUCT
16:05:26 <JeremyCarroll> Richard: but these do not give a JSON result
16:05:35 <sandro> cygri: This is most interesting if you don't really want to use a consumer library; if library is okay, then use existing syntax.   It's nice to just code away on the raw json, though.     
16:05:55 <JeremyCarroll> Zakim, mute JeremyCarroll
16:05:55 <JeremyCarroll> Richard: want simple or predictable result format for DESCRIBE and CONSTRUCT
16:05:55 <JeremyCarroll> Richard: we don't really want a library, because if library is OK then there is no problem to sovle (library can do whatever magic is needed)
16:05:55 <Zakim> JeremyCarroll was already muted, JeremyCarroll
16:06:09 <ivan> The requirements of Manu and Richard are not very dissimilar...
16:06:19 <davidwood> JeremyCarroll, no it wasn't you
16:06:32 <JeremyCarroll> Richard: related problem is posting data back to SPARQL store
16:06:35 <manu1> I wouldn't say that Ivan - not clear at the moment...
16:06:36 <JeremyCarroll> e.g. with HTTP PUT
16:06:37 <sandro> cygri: also, good to post back to store.   json serialization for simple encoding of RDF graph.
16:06:40 <davidwood> q?
16:06:52 <ww> zakim, unmute me
16:06:52 <Zakim> ww should no longer be muted
16:07:03 <sandro> (great, cygri)
16:07:06 <davidwood> ack ww
16:07:17 <PatHayes> yup
16:07:23 <Zakim> -LeeF
16:08:43 <JeremyCarroll> ww: has use cases with end users in web browswers annotating data
16:08:56 <JeremyCarroll> ww: the end users actions are mediated by web developers
16:09:07 <JeremyCarroll> ww: the web developers neither know nor want to know about RDF
16:09:32 <JeremyCarroll> ww: but these developers need to mediate between a triple store and the end users
16:09:40 <sandro> ww: The developers don't seem to know much about modeling in RDF, and don't want to, but the modeling in the back is RDF.
16:09:57 <ww> zakim, mute me
16:09:57 <Zakim> ww should now be muted
16:09:59 <JeremyCarroll> ww: mechanisms involve HTTP PUT/POST/GET and JSON but not sure how
16:10:06 <davidwood> ack zwu
16:10:10 <manu1> People might want to look at this as a complex example:
16:10:39 <JeremyCarroll> zwu: I understand why web developers do not want RDF/XML, but why not turtle
16:10:39 <sandro> zwu2: Why would developers really not want to get near Turtle.  It's really simple.
16:10:51 <davidwood> It may interest some to see how James Leigh and I roundtrip RDF to and from a browser:
16:10:57 <sandro> manu: They say they already know json, and don't see why they need something else.
16:10:57 <JeremyCarroll> manu: dev say we already know JSON, why should we learn more?
16:11:17 <sandro> manu: They just don't see the problem that json doesn't address.
16:11:32 <JeremyCarroll> manu: web developers use json to read and write data and accomplish their tasks involving linked data like tasks
16:11:49 <ww> somewhat harshly, i've been told that it is not reasonable to expect developers to "go back to school" and learn about something new, and rdf seems pretty different
16:11:58 <sandro> manu: and you don't need much more.      you just uris, and folks already do that a lot.    most of that can be done on the server side.    "Why are you making me learn something new, when that's not really required."
16:12:02 <JeremyCarroll> manu: why are you making me learn something new ...
16:12:24 <cygri> q+
16:12:35 <JeremyCarroll> zwu: RDF is not a huge deal
16:12:41 <cygri> q-
16:12:43 <JeremyCarroll> manu: but the learning curves are huge
16:12:49 <JeremyCarroll> JeremyCarroll: +1 to manu
16:12:59 <ivan> +1 to manu
16:13:01 <cygri> +10 to manu
16:13:09 <ww> +100 to manu
16:13:14 <JeremyCarroll> David: agrees with manu
16:13:17 <mischat> fwiw we built the whole of which is very ajaxie, or "ajar-ie" in timbl speak. Our model in the MVC was RDF, storage a triplestore. and like above RDF to and from a browser
16:13:23 <webr3> they have a full stack including progamming languages all setup around working with classes and objects - they just aren't setup to handle triples and graphs (who is??!)
16:13:29 <sandro> manu: The RDF concepts are really not something that are easy to pick up and learn.
16:13:32 <JeremyCarroll>  strong agreement with manu
16:13:36 <manu1> +1 to David
16:13:40 <ivan> +1 to David
16:13:52 <JeremyCarroll> David: we want web developers to use this technology, rather than web dev want to use these
16:13:52 <cygri> food for thought:
16:13:55 <sandro> davidwood: We want web developers to adopt this technology, more than they want to adopt it.   We can't put stumbling blocks in their way.
16:14:09 <JeremyCarroll> q+
16:14:12 <ivan> zhe, do not underestimate the weight of a familiar syntax
16:14:26 <davidwood> cygri: very relevant!
16:14:34 <AndyS> q+ to talk to linking
16:14:52 <JeremyCarroll> manu: I don't think web developers grok some of the advanced topics to do with linked data
16:15:03 <JeremyCarroll> Zakim, unmute JeremyCarroll
16:15:03 <Zakim> JeremyCarroll should no longer be muted
16:15:03 <zwu2> zakim, unmute me
16:15:04 <Zakim> zwu2 was not muted, zwu2
16:16:04 <ww> uri as a global *property/predicate* identifier is difficult - you can't write that in most OO type languages
16:16:06 <pfps> isn't JSON at least formally "open"
16:16:34 <JeremyCarroll> Jeremy: uri as global identifier as opposed to local scoped id is one key RDF concept
16:16:55 <JeremyCarroll> Jeremy: open schema of RDFS rather than fully specified app schema is a second
16:17:04 <JeremyCarroll> Jeremy: both are advanced and difficult
16:16:11 <manu1> +1 to Jeremy
16:16:12 <JeremyCarroll> Zakim, mute JeremyCarroll
16:16:12 <Zakim> JeremyCarroll should now be muted
16:16:23 <AndyS> AndyS supports cygri example (roughly)
16:16:48 <sandro> cygri,
16:17:14 <mischat> I thought we are supposed to be standardising common practices ....
16:17:17 <PatHayes> The other frightening thing about RDF is, if one probes the 'buzz' for insight, one finds a lot of worry and confusion and debate and so on, rather than a bunch of nice easy tutorials.
16:17:38 <sandro> indeed, PatHayes, it's not a pretty picture.
16:17:44 <AndyS> We did not finish JSON UCs
16:17:53 <hsbauer> hsbauer has left #rdf-wg
16:17:56 <PatHayes> So maybe we should make it our business to paint some better pictures :-)
