Thanks much Rachel for scribing. Please, work on the use cases and

    <Rachel> I can scribe - do you just want notes of the phone
    conversation recorded in IRC?

    kevin: John likely will not make the call today
    ... Chris Testa will not make the call today, traveling, but will
    have a status update next week

    rachel: I'm scribe today

    [Discussing importance of user experience. As we build all these
    test cases around "back-end" topics, must also include guidance on
    how the user will benefit from, and interact with, their government

    [intent is to have each use case address front-end, as well as

    kevin:The World Bank recently hosted a meeting, and one of the
    topics was eGov

    [Many challenges exist to implementing good eGov, outside of just

    <Owen> With reference to the "front-end" (user interface), XUL and
    UIML may be of interest: [3]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XUL &

    kevin: I will be updating Activity Plan with current due dates &
    ... we'll have a straw man ready in early January, that the group
    can react to and comment on
    ... lots of renewed interest in the US by the incoming
    Administration, and opening up government, delivering services
    ... use cases are due as soon as you can finish them

    josema: I've been reaching out to interested parties to get more
    input on use cases
    ... plan is kind of W3C SWEO (Semantic Web Education & Outreach)
    collection, different aim
    ... I recommend to follow their model collecting from outside but
    need to show issues we'll need to address later in time
    ... so we should look at use cases put together by other groups
    working on similar initiatives

    kevin: I've recently addressed Web Mavens group (WA DC-based)
    ... and will also speak at Web Managers Roundtable about eGov on
    Dec, 10th

    [Regarding use cases - the US web community has lots of things in
    the works now around social media & web 2.0, but no "final" work
    products ready yet. Still, a use case on these efforts would be
    valuable, showing lessons learned.]

    josema: there's some work being done by the UK and New Zealand
    around social media
    ... also by my state government using a risk management approach
    ... I'll send pointers and also expect to get a use case from the
    local case since CTIC working on it

    rachel: I'll include examples from around the world in the social
    media use case draft

    [everyone, please try to get your use cases drafted no later than
    December 10, so we can discuss at the next call on December 10]

    [regrets for Dec, 10th from Owen and Kevin - Owen at XML conference,
    Kevin at Web Manager Roundtable]
