[13:31:40 CDT(-0500)] <yura> Bosmon: colinclark so i was sketching some sample preferences sets and this is what i had, was that what you had in mind ?

[13:31:42 CDT(-0500)] <yura> http://pastie.org/4902754

[13:32:32 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> I wonder about all these empty "displayScreenEnhancement" properties

[13:32:39 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> tell me about them

[13:32:56 CDT(-0500)] <yura> well it's a reference to an ontology

[13:33:25 CDT(-0500)] <yura> but i m not sure there is a place for it in user preferences

[13:35:35 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> yeah, I guess the question is when we need references like this

[13:35:43 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> let's set it aside for a brief moment

[13:36:07 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> My understanding is that the preferences set would be a hash, containing registry terms on the left and an array of values on the right

[13:36:12 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> like

[13:36:42 CDT(-0500)]

<colinclark> { "fontSize": [

Unknown macro: { … }

,

], contrast: [

Unknown macro: {…}

] }

[14:11:03 CDT(-0500)] <yura> colinclark: alright, that makes sense, but would preference key have any ontological information ?

[14:11:24 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> It will have to have some, for sure

[14:11:32 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> the question is, how much, and how often?

[14:11:40 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> and I find myself somewhat unable to answer that question

[14:12:08 CDT(-0500)] <yura> same here, well i m thinking of capabilities transformations

[14:12:25 CDT(-0500)] <yura> and how we came to a conclusion that they would be grouped based on ontologies

[14:12:41 CDT(-0500)] <yura> but given a pnp set

[14:13:12 CDT(-0500)] <yura> there needs to be a way of figuring out which ontology the specific preferences belong to

[14:13:18 CDT(-0500)] <yura> in order to do the transformation

[15:00:26 CDT(-0500)] <yura> Bosmon, colinclark: would you be able to expand on: "Ontologies will be identified by their "opaque URN prefix" from a list "managed by the matchmaker"

[15:10:18 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> yura - some part of the "URN" identifying the ontology will be looked up to a record holding details of the ontology "on the server" when it is found referred to by the matchmaker

[15:10:47 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Hence there will be an "ontology registry" just by analogy with our current "solutions registry" etc.

[15:10:49 CDT(-0500)] <yura> ok so the keys are going to be urn's not urls?

[15:10:59 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Well, who cares about the difference (smile)

[15:11:05 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> They are just bloody strings....

[15:11:18 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> If only the "semantic web crew" would ever realise that : P

[15:12:59 CDT(-0500)] <yura> Bosmon: ok, would you have 1 example of such urn?

[15:14:55 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> yura: I'm distracting Bosmon at the moment

[15:15:01 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> do you want to join our call in a bit?

[15:21:13 CDT(-0500)] <yura> colinclark: sure, got the headset
