Dear all,

I would like to reply to some statements made in yesterdays telecon.

(1) With respect to the schema.org vocabularies:
The suggestion I'd made with respect to them is not to provide a mapping to
those schemas within our spec, but rather try to talk to the people there
wrt. to a potential alignment of their schemas to our Media Ontology

(2) With respect to the comments from Mari-Carmen about ontologies currently
used in the Linked Data area:
What additional vocabularies do you have in mind that not already are on our
radar? The things I know out there use vocabularies that either we provided
mappings for or that provided mappings to our ontology themselves (in case
of M3O) or that use our ontology (in case of the EventMedia stuff). The only
bigger effort in the Linked Data and multimedia area I am aware of that uses
an ontology which is not in our scope is the work from BBC. They use the
music ontology and other related vocabularies which we did not put into our
scope because of their sole focus on audio.

(3) With respect to the formation of a dedicated group on Linked Data +
We discussed this already in the past. WE could not find many reasons which
would demand a dedicated group on this topic as (a) the combination of
Linked Data and multimedia is "just" an application case for multimedia; I
admit a slightly more complex and maybe more interesting, but many key
issues can be drilled down to issues with Linked Data (publishing,
interlinking, consumption) themselves (b) Other issues were addressed by the
fragments working group (c) Dedicated vocabulaires are in my point of view
independent of their use with Linked Data

Maybe you have specific topics in mind that would demand a group which I do
not see?

For my view on this topic and the issues I see you might want to have a look
at the following publications:

Tobias Bürger and Michael Hausenblas "Interlinking Multimedia - Principles
and Requirements" In: Proceedings of the First International Workshop on
Interacting with Multimedia Content on the Social Semantic Web, co-located
with SAMT 2008, Dec, 3.-5., 2008

Fragments" In: Proceedings of Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2009), co-located

Bernhard Schandl, Bernhard Haslhofer, Tobias Bürger, Andreas Langegger, and
Wolfgang Halb "Linked Data and Multimedia: The State of Affairs" accepted
for publication in Multimedia Tools and Applications journal, Special issue
'Semantic Multimedia', Springer, 2010

Jean-Pierre Evain and Tobias Bürger "Semantic Web, Linked Data, and
Broadcasting - more in common than you'd think!" EBU Technical Review - 2011

Thomas Kurz, Sebastian Schaffert and Tobias Bürger "LMF - A Framework for
Linked Media", accepted at MMWeb2011 (forthcoming).

Looking forward to discuss more on these issues!

Best regards,
