Hi,

The following google doc has an early draft of a shared activity list. The
list combines the existing lists that have been shared with the group to
date, with some additional descriptions.

Thanks for Kim and Becky for taking a lead on this work.

Please have a look at the list and share your feedback with the group.

There are a few items to note what I'd like to start discussing in
tomorrow's call.

There are a few terms in yellow which have been flagged up for further
discussion

Some items are missing descriptions, which will need to be added.

The list currently have Sport and Physical Activity as top terms. This is
because in the current data, everything falls into one of those two
categories. But there are reasons why they may be better represented as
collections. I'm interested in views on this.

We are using the SKOS standard to organise the list, there's a reasonable
overview of its key points on Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_Knowledge_Organization_System#Overview

Representing activities as concepts (or terms) gives us more flexibility,
as we can attach notes, documentation, identifiers and add cross-references
between them.

We can also represent activities as collections. This allows us to group
together sports and physical activities in multiple ways. But we then don't
have the option to annotate or organise those collections.

Cheers,

L.
