Paola and #cidocCRM SIG members,


First, a quick update to note that I am now an “official card-carrying member” of ICOM with participation in the CIDOC community! It took many weeks, but my official membership card and welcome pack arrived yesterday. As a U.S.-based #cidocCRM community member, I look forward to helping with whatever we can do to expand the community of interest and use of the #cidocCRM. (I am, however, also still waiting with bated breath for the election results of my proposed membership into the #cidocCRM SIG. I will be very pleased if  I have the opportunity to say that I am a #cidocCRM SIG member.)


To this end, I have to admit to nearly drooling on my keyboard at Paola’s note describing the upcoming #TPDL2015 workshop ( While we don’t know yet which specific presentations will be made, this will surely be a “watershed” opportunity to gather and share good information about current and emerging #cidocCRM-related projects. It would be a shame for this information to be presented only to those in attendance at the workshop, then lost to the “back burner” of expensive academic press access.


Indeed, these presentations will likely be a showcase of “best practices” and “lessons learned” that will be invaluable as new users and developers begin working with the #cidocCRM.


PROPOSAL: Can we arrange for this workshop to be webcast for remote “real time attendance/conversation” as well as record this stream for re-purposing as video resource material on the upcoming new website?


For my part to help make this webcast/recording possible, I would be happy to work with any “boots on the ground” folk who may be planning to attend the workshop. I’d do whatever I can to assist in preparing for, promoting, and delivering this proposed webcast/recording. (A Google Hangout on the Air, for example, might be a good way to deliver the live stream while it transparently records the sessions for YouTube-based post-workshop viewing.)


If this idea is acceptable to the SIG, I would be happy to hear from folks via private message to coordinate this activity.


    Happy-Healthy Vibes,
