AW: Minutes of 2010-09-16 LLD meeting

Hi Tod,


sorry for my barely understandable presentation on the phone. I was in
my home town, and the connection switched over from UMTS to GSM during
the telecon, so I couldn't follow on IRC either. It must have been very
difficult to figure out anything from my talk.


I don't know if it's advisible to apply changes to the protocol - anyway
I'll add it here for two contributions which were not understandable at



Joachim: the material is digitized newspaper clippings, with almost

... no metadata, organized in thematic folders

... we enriched person folders with links to German authority file LLD

... allows to pull in german and english dbpedia abstracts and

... for company folders difficult because they don't have authority file

... also added links to Eds Chronicling America

... few American newspaper articles available, hope German newspaper 

... databases also publish LD to link to



Joachim: ORE allows to describe the boundaries of an aggregation

... and distinguish it from links to stuff outside of the aggregation



Sorry again, and have a nice weekend - Joachim

the middle. You can use it effectively if you recognize its limitations
and remember which end is which. -- Harlan Mills

   RESOLVED:To accept minutes of previous telecon:


Face-to-face meetings

   kcoyle: need a set of goals for F2F

   emma: Not yet, want to discuss Use cases
   ... discuss Topic list at F2F, don't have the goals for F2F

   <Zakim> TomB, you wanted to suggest that, as a goal, we clarify what
   deliverables we want to achieve by end of charter

   kcoyle: Very broad topics, we need to help guide our thoughts to
   make good use of the time

   TomB: chartered 1 year, number of wiki pages, artifacts, but we need
   to understand what we can deliver in our timeframe

   <Zakim> antoine, you wanted to comment on use cases requirements

   TomB: may want to decide what deliverables we can work on and what
   should be next steps

   Antoine: Use case call will be closed,

   <Zakim> antoine, you wanted to comment on organization

   Emma: main goal F2F is to define the deliverables from the use cases

   Antoine: question on mic and speaker, can supply them?

   <kcoyle> for computer?

   <antoine> karen, yes

   <jeff_> i can ask if we have it

   <antoine> +1

   [$1\47] [13]


   <emma> [14]


   <antonie> what the data like at the project start and how was it

   <edsu> antoine: good question :)

   Joachim: link to German authority file LLD impl
   ... difficult because don't have authority file idenitifers
   ... few American newspaper articles available, hope that other
   German databases to link to

   I don't know if I caught all of that Joachim (please add comments?)

   Joachim: metadata is mostly attached to folders



   Edsu: Use case NDNP
   ... part of 20 year project digitize american newspaper. Start to
   move microfilm to be digitized
   ... 250Gb harddrives, of batches (xml. tiff. OCR files)
   ... LD is webapp that sit on top of data, search OCR and browse
   ... data is being cut off in 1922 copyright issues avoided
   ... each batch gets a name, browse from batch to issues
   ... problem how to get data to researchers
   ... have relational db, that could be dumped, this where LD approach
   ... mint cool URLs, get rdf that describe the data
   ... not hierarchical, graph view makes linking more natural.
   ... link to dbpedia get geo coordinates to map newspaper coverage
   ... links to flikr to allow folks to interact with data more

   <antoine> Ed: really great!

   Edsu: FOAF to describe the agent that produced the data, some
   additional project define vocab
   ... example use of data to explore Chicago news titles relate

   <Zakim> antoine, you wanted to ask about use of ORE in two cases

   Edsu: how to make annotations more readable. would be nice to
   capture them and add to the data set (e.g., from flikr)

   antoine: have that 2 cases data been compared?

   Edsu: look some at ORE data, but the vocab is small
   ... could be too generic

   Joachim: want to apply to search results that are not covered by
   other vocab.

   <edsu> here's an example of some rdf for a page w/ some oai-ore


   Joachim: would allow to describe the boundaries of aggregation
   ... describe the links of aggregation

   Edsu: nice about ORE, allows people to extract not just the
   metadata, but the things being described

   <edsu> jneubert: you first :-)

   Antoin: did you feel to need to choose the original data that you

   Antoin: will take question offline

   ACTION: Everyone to elaborate on topics in the wiki [recorded in
   tes.html#action08] [CONTINUES]
