The charter explains that the mission of the group is focused on interoperability for library data. Limited to library because specific and complex enough, but should obviously reach out to other communities in the end (in particular LAM). Expected deliverables : state of the art report, use cases, requirements, technology pieces.
What's an incubator group ? It's a short lived, light weight structure intended to identify future working tracks. The incubator is here to ask questions, not answer.
Lot of different people. Meet mainly on teleconferences, IRL only once (DC conference last october in Pittsburgh).
The use case effort : show huge and very diverse interest for LD in the community. Difficult to extract something at a global level -> creation of clusters. Shows the benefits of LD to users (patrons but also librarians, developers, etc.)

Linked Data Principles Use URIs as names for things Use HTTP URIs so that people can look up those names Provide useful information using standards (RDF, SPARQL) Create links with other datasets Linked Data principles from Sir Tim Berners-Lee
Because being part of the Linked data means being part of the Web, and bring the Web's value to library users
Because Linked Data technology could improve the value of description efforts by increasing interoperability and empowering better data curation processes based on links
Because future bibliographic standards may be based on Linked Data and Semantic Web models
Because Linked Data technologies are not limited to the library domain, and thus create opportunities for sharing beyond libraries
To help increase global interoperability of library data on the Web, by bringing together people involved in Semantic Web activities — focusing on Linked Data — in the library community and beyond, building on existing initiatives , and identifying collaboration tracks for the future . http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/charter
Not W3C Recommendations, but “innovative ideas for specifications, guidelines, and applications that are not (or not yet) clear candidates as Web standards”
=> XGs can trigger further W3C work
