[WG-InfoSharing] [projectvrm] proposal for one day Fast Scenario Planning on Info Sharing, May 16 (Sunday)
coach at digitalIDcoach.com
Wed Feb 10 14:03:30 EST 2010
Our Fast Scenario Development day is not VRM-specific, it's information
sharing-specific. Info sharing underlies VRM and so facilitates further
discussion. I wanted to be clear about focusing expectations.
Info sharing in this instance starts with the user as point of
integration, user having control over their personal datastore, and
voluntarily resharing it for use and services.
If you're able to attend this day on Sunday (before IIW), please bring
your imagination. We will be guiding the process.
> This will be a Good Thing. I know and like Michael. Some of you may remember him from the West Coast Workshop last May. <http://www.flickr.com/photos/berkmancenter/sets/72157622528280084/>
> I am optimistic about getting the same venue, at SAP. Should be able to get sponsorship help too. In discussions now.
> I think the main challenge for scenario planning is not describing what VRM is, but encouraging and coordinating VRM development. We need examples of VRM tools, and of VRM at work. Until then "articulating what VRM is" will remain a challenge: we're still in a "will be" situation.
> Nature in fact is taking its course. There *is* VRM development going on. There are groups, such as UMA and Information Sharing at Kantara, the Mine! Project, ListenLog/EmanciPay, the various open source and commercial efforts going on around Information Cards, plus other stuff listed here:
> (Please feel free to add and correct items there. It's a wiki.)
> The question is, what other organizations do we need? And when?
> Obviously, ProjectVRM needs a life of some kind beyond its Berkman gestation period. What would that be? Would it need the same name, even? What role should it play?
> There are other research plans in the works, outside of Berkman and Harvard.
> There are also funding sources for VRM work as well, just starting to materialize in the last six months. What should those funds go towards?
> Those are just a few of my thoughts as I look at what Judi and Michael would like to help us do.
