Report on the LOD-LAM Summit at ‘Linked Data and Libraries 2011′

July 14, 2011 in proceedings

Earlier today I gave a short report on the LOD-LAM Summit at the Talis ‘Linked Data and Libraries 2011‘ event held at the British Library in London. I’ve embedded the slides here:

There’s quite a few photos from the event in the slides, as well as some from the Internet Archive visit on the last slide. I drew attention to the breakout group notes on the Pirate Pad as the place to go to find out more, as well as the Summit blog of course. There was clearly interest in the #lodlam London event (#lodlamlon ?) that Mia Ridge and myself have been talking about. Mia has taken the lead on pulling this together via the meet-up page.

I also noted that Antoine Isaac was suggesting the possibility that the #lodlam community may be able to pick up the W3C Library Linked Data Incubator Group activities that are about to finish soon.

There’s a write up of my report and the other talks from the event on Owen Stephen’s ‘Overdue Ideas‘ blog.

Cheers, Ade
