  • Tim needs IOGDS out of the way to get back on top of PROV-O (it's in a "good direction" from the last two weeks)
  • Jim is concerned about the final design (WG is avoiding abstractions)
    • Tim agrees, but it's the best we can get from them now, and we can use the current approved design to argue it would be better with IPVOf.

"a distinct intellectual or artistic creation."

"A work is an abstract entity; there is no single material object one can point to as the work.  We recognize the work through individual realizations or expressions of the work, but the work itself exists only in the commonality of content between and among the various expressions of the work."

Tim is pml:Information frbr:Manifestation? Jim: nope.

Paulo, the two tools are described at the bottom of https://github.com/timrdf/csv2rdf4lod-automation/wiki/frbr%3Amccusker2012parallel

Paulo points out that scalability will be a concern in the future. (Tim wonders how expensive computing the digests will be)
