To prepare for these conversations, it would be great if we could all read:

  1. The skeleton outline of the use cases document
  2. The challenges that the use cases editors have pulled from our use cases. (See all 4 worksheets/tabs in the document)

Please also look at these. They may be useful as inspiration/suggestions (in structure or scope) for our work.

  1. A use cases document: The CSV on the Web Use Cases and Requirements
    • This document also may have some use cases for us to consider.
  2. A best practices document: the Mobile Web Best Practices 1.0
  3. A vocabulary: the RDF Data Cube Vocabulary

Sunday dinner

For those in London on Sunday evening, we will be gathering at the Mulberry Bush Pub at 7pm. We'll have a drink or two there and find dinner nearby.

Do note that the clocks go forward for daylight savings time (to BST) early on Sunday morning.

IBM's Client Centre, Southbank, London (map)


London Hotels vary in price from expensive to How Much?! Both Travelodge and Premier Inn offer reasonable value for money.

The IBM Client Centre is near many of the most famous landmarks so if you're planning to do some site seeing you won't have far to go. If you want to stay further away from the centre then the tube (Underground) is usually very efficient.
