Previous Meeting



  • Chair: Tantek
  • Scribes: Aaron Parecki, wilkie
  • Regrets:


Chair to start the meeting by typing on irc:

trackbot, start meeting

Trackbot should already be on the channel but if for some reason it is not call it with the following command:

/invite trackbot

Zakim won't know what meeting it is. Just ignore it. Pick a scribe from the list or ask Zakim to pick one up with the following command:

Zakim, pick a victim

Unfortunately Zakim has no idea who's scribed before so you may have to ask several times before getting an acceptable answer...

Then type:

scribe: xxx

Also, with WebEx, Zakim doesn't know who is on the call so, as people join they should record their attendance with the command: present+ <nickname>

For additional info, see the Zakim documentation page.

Aligning AS2.0 and Microformats

Proposed by Pavlik elf (talk) 10:53, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

As of today AS2.0 and Microformats don't provide easy way to use them together. Current work and proposals

Invitation (challenge) addressed at two of Social WG chairs - Tantek & Evan proposing Proving usability of ActivityStreams2.0 and Microformats together by example

Questions to consider:

  • Will provide clear prefix to have clear URIs for terms it provides?
  • Can AS2.0 spec include prefix (e.g. h:) in
  • In case of not reaching consensus withing Social WG/IG, can we leave to survival of the fittest resolution of issues like h:card vs. as:Individual vs. vcard:Organization | h:event vs. as:Event vs. ical:Vevent etc.

Intended use of as:Profile

Proposed by Pavlik elf (talk) 10:53, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

During F2F in Paris, as:Profile got proposed toward the end of conversation in which we seemed to mix few different issues together. Proposal of how we could use as:Profile -

I-JSON discussion

- Should we add I-JSON to what we support (i.e. JSON-LD with explicit I-JSON support?)
