Øyvind tested the documents on two skilled curators. I "tested" the
documents on the Chair of Norwegian ICOM. His comment was "Many consider
the language used in computer science discouraging if not scaring and I
am among them". A friend of mine, a historian, uses the term
'humiliating interface' for non user friendly applications.
So to introduce persistent identifiers(uri) to the museums we somehow
have to get our message through this mental barrier. I assume one needs
to formulate the benefits without mentioning the gory details as if we
were speaking to Ludwig II of Bavaria.
