A placeholder page to discuss a possible meetup with people interested in the applications of linked data, microformats, RDFa for museums and the cultural heritage sector.



Daytime, evening?

[Evening is easier for me]


Possibly July 7 or 8?  Does this clash with anything?


EVA London is July 5 - 7 but it looks like they don't have any receptions on July 7.





A quiet pub or meeting room?  Wifi needed?  Breakout spaces? Whiteboards, drawing paper?  Depends on numbers, but a quiet pub, with drawing paper and possibly wifi should work (and be more relaxed than a meeting room).


Possible Topics for Discussion?

Has anyone implemented microformats or RDFa on their website? If so, what formats? What uptake/usage of the metadata has been seen?


RDFa vs microformats? Advantages of each?

Work-of-art microformat. Would a more generic microformat for man-made objects attract more interest?

What data could we potentially link to? Competiting resources - e.g. Geonames vs Getty Thes. of Geographic Names.

Any word of progress on the Collections Trust Terminology Server? Potentially a powerful resource to link to.


What's something we could work towards after the meeting?


  • All contribute to pushing the discussion on a proposed microformat
  • Encourage one manager/supplier of authority data to expose it as free linkable data
  • Each have a trial project on one microformat/RDFa format and report back
