Dear Phil,

I submitted a proposal about a Decree of Basque Government related to Open
Data and Open Government and I did not receive any feedback from anybody.
Could you please tell me how to proceed in order that Basque Government
proposal, as W3C member, should be taken into account and discussed in this
WG? Maybe including it in the Agenda of a next meeing or so...

Best regards,

Serafin Olcoz

>     <bhyland> @pgryth, thank you for a very comprehensive dive on
>     Open Colorado, great work! Very interesting, thank you.
> 
>     Daniel_Bennett: The idea is that for each of these, we'll have
>     a meeting to get us towards a concrete/finsihed product. These
>     will be separate from the monthly eGov IG meetings

>     We can be quick when we have to be, honestly...

>     <bhyland> @Daniel_Bennett … can you provide the 50,000' view of
>     what you're aiming to achieve with this writeup please?
> 
>     Daniel_Bennett: We may use the wiki or we may have a secretary

>     to the wiki
> 
>     <Jeanne_Holm> Target audience is for the larger community of
>     eGov people who are not actually on the calls themselves.
> 
>     Daniel_Bennett: I think having a checklist for gov workers is
>     important
>     ... it can be something generic enough for everyone to use and
>     can be tailored to specific circumstances
> 
>     <Jeanne_Holm> Daniel_Bennett: Have a menu for social media to
>     broaden the possibilities

>     <bhyland> @Jeanne_Holm, so is it a summary of all the eGov
>     meetings or a work product like a best practices doc?
> 
>     Daniel_Bennett: The idea is that there is a process - rules
>     etc. on how they do things. So first thing would be to draw a
>     diagram of how they do things in that department
> 
>     <Jeanne_Holm> Bhyland--a work product that will highlight some
>     best practices (not to be an exhaustive research project) and
>     the important things for gov implementers and those in the
>     field to be aware of based on research and implementations
>     presented from our group.
> 
>     <bhyland> @jeanne_holm, thanks, understand.
> 
>     Daniel_Bennett: Then any legal issues. The federal gov has a
>     specific contract. Others might have similar things to deal
>     with. Accessibility, privacy etc.
>     ... May be rules on moderation
>     ... May be rules on publishing government communications,
>     activities etc.
>     ... In the whiteboard session I can look at the different
>     layers so folks can see who they'll need to talk to
>     ... Moves on to the menu

>     Daniel_Bennett: Hoping to have a meeting every 2 weeks to make
>     progress. Hope people are interested to lend a hand

>     Jeanne_Holm: I just want to mention a couple of things. You've
>     done some of these before - I like the framework
>     ... You didn't volunteer to do everything.
> 
>     Daniel_Bennett: I volunteered to do the social media one
> 
>     Jeanne_Holm: We're looking for volunteers for this but also to
>     do the same thing for the open data series as well
> 
>     Daniel_Bennett: Any questions or, better still, offers of help?
> 
>     <Jeanne_Holm> Please make sure to include me on the meeting for
>     social media write up!

> 
>     bhyland: The vocab discussions may not be the ones of greatest
>     interest but the best practice meetings would be - procurement,
>     publishing etc.
> 
>     brand: In a broader perspective... all this work with
>     government open data and linked data should have started in a
>     different way. Should have started with most interesting data
>     and then move other data sets to the same direction
> 
>     <Jeanne_Holm> Brand: This should have started in a different
>     way with the best data from the gov agencies in the best
>     standards and then to move the rest of the data that way.
> 
>     brand: We tried to make data.gov that way but it ended up
>     essentially being an IT project
>     ... I'm writing a paper for the Japanese government. They
>     started with CKAN. I've been asked to take the statistical data
>     they have and put that into a standardised linked data format
>     as well as the CKAN data
>     ... It's all about trying to take the best data a country has
>     first and then get the open data to match

> WWW2013 Brazil
> 
>     Jeanne_Holm: Are we interested in organising a session on
>     eGov/Open data?
>     ... It could be based on the social media Note that we should
>     have published by then, possibly the one on open data by then
>     too
>     ... If we can come together in the coming weeks and see who
>     wants to be involved - it's a good opportunity for the group
> 
>     General call for help with flights

>     <bhyland> PhilA2: The W3C staff involved in Society &
>     Technology Activity believe the tech stack is nearly complete.

>     <bgryth> @bhyland - we would be happy to discuss lessons
>     learned. Let me know how you'd like to do that.

>     Web: use, discovery, find it programmatically, vocabulary
>     development
> 
>     <bhyland> Next requirements involve: #1 - Validation; #2 -
>     Programmatic & developer access & re-use of data; #3 -
>     Vocabulary development (some being done in W3C GLD WG), looking
>     to consider more 'crowd sourced' approaches ...

>     <bhyland> @jeanne-holm, perhaps a 15 debrief on GLD WG
