Potential Breakout Topics:

 (overlapping goals)?)
Tuesday, June 28

Breakout groups

Group 1 - (only group that did not use pirate pad :-))
Group 2 (Niz)
Group 3
Not one killer app - but how do we enable a thousand flowers to bloom - provide simple platform, tools, and primer on "how to do this" to enpower those to experiment with LOD. Enable failure in order to move forward.

 Busiess Case:
 Providing better user expereince to create rich environment that supports and inspires intellectual curiosity and scholarship. (LOD creates infinite path current metadata strings in libraries are dead ends)
     LOD provides more content/ links services  - potential to support research libraries releavance in linked information ecology
     Reduced cost of data production through data reuse
     Quality of data (current RDF triple store is low)

Group 4 (Ed, Phil, Joan, Bill, Madgy, Eetu)

Manifesto for Linked Libraries

We are uncovering better ways of publishing, sharing and using information by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:
That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
