Hello all,

I have created a case called "Europeana": http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/Use_Case_Europeana

Following what was mentioned in a past discussion, I found it easier to starting from a specific case easier than describing a generic "digital object access point--metadata aggregator and distributor". But I guess the stuff there could fit the (surprisingly many) projects that fall in this category.

Comments are of course more than welcome!

Some comments on filling the template:

- it was not easy to make the distinction between "how we use linked data technology to achieve this goal." in the Goal section [1] and "Application of linked data for the given use case" [2]

- in the dimensions [3] I found the "devices" not so useful. I expect that most for the cases will be not focused on specific platform, just having "online" as basic choice. Perhaps it would be better to distill the info ourselves, when a given case addresses a specific platform.

- in the dimensions [3] I found the information life cycle potentially redundant, and not so trivial to manipulate

- I found the topic list [4] not useful at all for the exercise. In my own specific case I knew I would have add to select many topics, which is cumbersome. But even then, I felt that as a UC contributor I wouldn't want to browse and try to understand everything in the topic list. We have to expect that contributors often won't have this high on their priority list, and can't spend a lot of time on it. It should be alright for someone in the group, as we have to work on these topics anyway. But for someone outside the group it's really too difficult. I was already fed-up after the dimensions, to tell the truth... We should really have it *strongly* labelled as optional.

- About Joachim's new sections [5]: their content is useful. But:
-- we could have the "Prototype" under "Existing work", just adapting the text for that section. In fact when I started thinking of Jaochim's section I realized that I had already put our prototype in the existing work section, so I did nothing :-)
-- for "Target audience", I think some more guidance is required. Without Joachim's example [6] I'd have felt a bit lost. This could be done by putting appropriate text in the template, of putting the target audience in the dimensions [3], using as example choices the user category examples we have so far.

Cheers,

Antoine
