I am a Project Manager and Community Coordinator at the Open Knowledge Foundation with a background in philosophy and intellectual history.
I am Coordinator of the Open Knowledge Foundation's open culture activities, leader of our Open GLAM initiative and project manager for the OKFN's work on the Digitised Manuscripts to Europeana (http://dm2e.eu) project an EU initiative to build open source linked open data tools for the annotation of digital metadata and content in Europeana.
|Interest in LODLAM||
Reasons for wanting to attend the summit are two-fold:
1. To showcase the open-source Linked Data tools that are being developed as part of DM2E for annotating and linking cultural data sourced from GLAMs
2. To present the work of Open GLAM and engage members of the LODLAM community in the network, sharing the use cases we have collected through our work in Europe and spotting synergies and areas where the two communities could collaborate better to further our shared goals. We would also like to discuss ways to engage the LODLAM community in the next OKFestival that will be taking place in July in Geneva.
|Linked Open Data Projects||
The two main projects that are relevant to LODLAM that I would represent and present on are:
