CURATEcamp 2010: Day 1 Intro


  • Welcome to curatecamp: Micro-Services!
    • Why are we here?
      • Mike and Declan got to talking in a bar at code4lib that they'd like to see an even more focused event than c4l around repositories
      • Discussion led to the broader concepts of digital curation
      • Asked ourselves who was doing the most applied, interesting work in digital curation
        • Micro Services kept coming up
          • CDL, UNT, UCSD
      • Mike asked Mairead for money
        • Mairead wasn't sick of Mike yet ;)
