hi all,

I'm going to be collaborating with Greg Elin (fotonotes) and others on
a photos site drawing together depiction metadata for all the WWW
conferences. We had a discussion today about it:


Brian McBride suggested that we use this mailing list for
discussions about this. It's not clear how much traffic this will
create, but it is rather nicely related to the SWAD-E project and in
particular, should generate some good FAQs (which we will need for our
newsletter, to start in the new year).

The idea of the project is to create a database of creative-commons
licensed photos and metdata and create some interesting interfaces to
it, to be usable by WWW2004 on May 2004. It's likely that we will use
many vocabularies, including Dublin Core, FOAF, GEO, Wordnet and
RDFiCal, and so hopefully we should be able to come up with some good
documentation about how to combine these vocabularies. In addition, we
will run into very real practical problems such as how to identify
people and how to create user interfaces to this kind of RDF creation.

I think it's a strong candidate for discussion here, not least
because of the connections with the image workshop we held last year,
but I'd like to have your opinions in case there's a better forum. Would
it bother you guys if we used this list?
