Hi Christine,

I'm interested in your suggestion below, both because it relates to the aims of the primer and because it sounds like a potentially good topic for a masters/undergraduate student project :-)

Can you say more about what you had in mind? Did you mean something passive like a slide-show of what to do in a particular IDE, or interactive where the tool is validating/augmenting what the user has done? Is the user you had in mind a developer using a particular programming/embedding language (e.g. Java or RDFa), or someone considering what provenance to model in their application at a design level? In what aspects do you think the guidance in the primer is insufficient by itself and where such a tool could help most fill the gap?

Subject: Potentially improving outreach?

Hi all.

Speaking with Ivan this morning, he suggested I send an email around prior to the next face-to-face meeting.

Thinking about greater outreach ... and with full knowledge that is a big (and possibly unreasonable) ask .... sometime in the future after the other work is done, might we be able to consider developing a tool (or user interface) for non-provenance experts that would help them walk through the application/implementation of the specs? (e.g. a practical compliment to the primer).
