13:50:03 <Zakim> + +1.202.270.aajj
13:50:37 <Daniel_Bennett> Jose: we still need to put out W3Cstandards. dealing with proprietary formats.
13:51:54 <Daniel_Bennett> Jose: it is complicating the point of open gov data
13:51:54 <Daniel_Bennett> Joe: are you chartered to look at cataloging gov looking at standards.
13:51:57 <Daniel_Bennett> Kevin: a lot of agencies dealing with legacy data.
13:51:59 <Daniel_Bennett> Kevin: how can we aid agencies with this problem set.
13:52:01 <Daniel_Bennett> we should address those that need 100% solutions for data to be useful vs. those that can just move on with new data.
13:52:16 <Daniel_Bennett> missed. who is speaking
13:52:30 <josema> we are building a number of transformers, but it's hard and most are adhoc due to how legacy data was archived :(
13:53:05 <Daniel_Bennett> Brian: Local govt need esp. help on this. this is my interest with outreach to locals. 
13:54:06 <Daniel_Bennett> John: we have similar issue. my experience does not hire those folks
13:55:56 <Daniel_Bennett> Brian: no money for this work
13:58:19 <Daniel_Bennett> Joe: talking about just having raw data. and then allow others to overlay documentation.
13:58:42 <Daniel_Bennett> Brian: lets at least catalog. 
13:59:28 <Daniel_Bennett> how about open sourcing the conversion of gov docs. like recaptcha
13:59:30 <Daniel_Bennett> ?
14:00:18 <Daniel_Bennett> Joe: it is possible to do PDF things like include embedded xml and named locations.
14:00:38 <Zakim> -Brand
14:00:49 <Daniel_Bennett> Daniel: that is not standard practice and does not apply to legacy docs. and adobe looking to Mars Project.
14:01:49 <Daniel_Bennett> Brian: resources lack and IT lack is holding folks back. 
14:02:27 <Daniel_Bennett> Brian: human speak is better than geek speak at getting gov folks to see importance of good data practices
14:03:04 <Daniel_Bennett> John: is there anyone more to speak?
14:05:13 <Daniel_Bennett> ThomasB: Inspire project

14:17:40 <josema> topic: Legislation and Citations
14:17:40 <joec>
14:17:40 <Zakim> -George_Thomas
14:18:00 <johnlsheridan> People are already building stuff around our legislation API, eg:
14:18:34 <johnlsheridan> the UK legislation API is at - and we're surfacing some RDF too, with more to come.
14:19:27 <Vagner> link to an XML open data project in Brazil:
14:19:32 <AdamHarvey> I just got pulled into a meeting,... have to leave.
14:19:38 <Zakim> -AdamHarvey
14:20:20 <Daniel_Bennett> Joe: discussing a method of providing links to gov docs including sub/anchored links
14:20:44 <Daniel_Bennett> Joe: need to help govt w/ overlay
14:21:35 <Daniel_Bennett> Daniel says that having open data, allows overlays like legislink independent of gov. does not keep gov from doing anything.
14:22:27 <Daniel_Bennett> is a value add that can help influence gov. as opposed to current practice of bad data that private firms fix/normalize and then provide expensive access
