  • At university I had the 2 tutors that gave weekly essays. These essays were the source of serious brain pain. On one side we had completely weird and wonderful subjects such as How were the hanging gardens of Babylon feasible in a the middle of the desert and on the other Explain the dynamic geomorphology of the pre cambrian period looking at the influences of geology, hydrology and glaciology with reference to Greenbergs ecosystem hypothesis. For the second type I used to wake up in the middle of the night and think……….aha that’s what she means, but but the next morning I would be in serious doubt of the links to Greenberg …. We complained that we struggled to interpret her questions and she said – OK I will give you just one word essay titles: Snow, Soil, Clouds, and you can write what the hell you like…. The first was not my finest moment…the comment at the end was ‘try reading Desmond Bagley’s The Snow Tiger’ there is more science on avalanches in his novel than you have – The one on soil I have wiped from my memory banks but by the time we got to Clouds I was pissed off with her – so took her literally and wrote on a subject I liked. Constables clouds. I wrote about the depiction in his paintings of the various types of clouds and how the rest of the picture reflected that weather moment………towering cumulus, gathering clouds or altocumulus, mare’s tales signifying immanent change in the weather. This earned me an alpha grade and an long term interest in reading clouds to predict the weather
  • With some great depictions of towering cumulonimbus, signifying rain
  • Do the following
  • Welcome to Den Haag, to the KB and to the kick off of Europeana Cloud. Have you got wifi working on your computers? You are welcome to not listen to me as long as you do one thing. later on I will tell you why……..
  • Go to pro.europeana.eu and click on the Europeana Network tab
  • Scroll down to Join the Europeana Network. Now if you have not already done this, could you now click on the Register for Membership link and then fill in the form.
  • I will try to give a status report on where we are today with building the Europeana Ecosystem and then look at where Cloud in particular might take this.
  • Europeana was born as a political vision to create social and economical capital
  • This has led to the creation of a strong infrastructure for aggregation of cultural objects and a variety of ways to access this material online.
  • Here is a sneak preview of the look of the new site we will launch in the next two weeks.
  • To create the real multiplier effect. * Powered by Europeana becomes big.
  • It has also created a growing active network of individuals who form task forces and solve technology, data and IPR issues so we can achieve standardisation, normalisation, cross border exchange, multilingual use etc. j is growing (currently 500 + members), and becoming more diverse: there are museums, libraries and archives, but also publishers, policy makers and creatives industries.

  • It has also created a growing active network of individuals who form task forces and solve technology, data and IPR issues so we can achieve standardisation, normalisation, cross border exchange, multilingual use etc. j is growing (currently 500 + members), and becoming more diverse: there are museums, libraries and archives, but also publishers, policy makers and creatives industries. A network that breaks down like this. A network that can form its own linkage that may or may not include Europeana But one which we need to make sure continues to push for standards, normalisation, sharing of costs and infrastructures, development of content with the conditions for its reuse, and one that tries to make sure that different audiences can get to the cultural heritage and tools and services held all over Europe, via audience centric sites such as Europeana Research or thematic ones such as Europeana Fashion or Europeana 1914-1918.
  • Where we switch from an ecosystem that is supply driven
  • To one that requires significant change and troubled waters
  • A cloud that allows contributors, users, the office, creative industry, aggregators, researchers etc to coexist and make use of the metadata or content, the tools and services, under agreed rules of working
  • A cloud that allows others in Developer and Innovator communities access to content to use their skills, which are not ours, to develop the app, the game, the new use that generates monies, jobs and economic growth we all benefit from. Or to act as repository where the GLAM’s can extract the content or metadata they need
  • This is the aim of Europeana Cloud – it builds on much of what we have done and are doing, both technically and within the network but can be made to happen now courtesy of 2 major projects with some contribution from a couple of others funded in the last call such as LoCloud and Eagle.
  • We create a space where backend infrastructures are shared and the costs therefore reduced, but that has mulitiple front ends to serve specific audiences, including, within this project the development of Europeana Research from the work of The European Library but incorporating a much wide set of data
  • This for me is the vision for Europeana and the ecosystem, and I see Europeana Cloud being able to deliver on it.
  • Why? 1. "RED SKY AT NIGHT, SHEPHERD'S DELIGHT; RED SKY IN THE MORNING, SHEPHERD'S WARNING" DEEP RED SUNSETS ARE OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH DRY, SETTLED WEATHER AND HIGH PRESSURE. A DEEP RED SUNSET MAY INDICATE A PROLONGED SPELL OF GOOD WEATHER. BUT THE KEY SIGN IS IN THE RED SKY AROUND THE SUN - AND NOT THE COLOUR OF THE CLOUD ITSELF. RED SKY IN THE MORNING CAN BE INTERPRETED IN A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT WAY. AS THE SUN RISES AT A LOW ANGLE IN THE EAST, IT MAY LIGHT UP THE IMPENDING CLOUDS ASSOCIATED WITH A WEATHER FRONT COMING IN FROM THE WEST. IT MAY ALSO INDICATE THAT RAIN IS ON ITS WAY AND DUE TO ARRIVE LATER IN THE DAY, HENCE THE "SHEPHERD'S WARNING".
  • Why – because it is a great way of knowing what’s going on, being connected into the wider work of the whole ecosystem and finding out about other projects of interest And because we have an internal competition for how many sign ups we can get during a specific conference session!
  • via a series of workshops with policy makers and the network we have arrived at the following principles for our European Cultural Commons Mutuality - Create a community, based on the principles of achieving mutual benefit, acting in good faith and presuming it on behalf of others Access - Provide a set of high-quality re-usable content, tools and services to enable creativity and innovation Attribution - Commit to the principle of respecting rights through acknowledgement and attribution Consistency - Build on the existing values and principles of our sector Engagement - Commit, as members of the community proactively to use the commons and to contribute to it
