Open Annotation Core Data Model

The Open Annotation Core Data Model [1] produced by the   Open Annotation Community Group [2] specifies an interoperable framework for creating associations between related resources, called annotations, using a methodology that conforms to the Architecture of the World Wide Web. Open Annotations can easily be shared between platforms, with sufficient richness of expression to satisfy complex requirements while remaining simple enough to also allow for the most common use cases, such as attaching a piece of text to a single web resource. This talk presents the W3C Open Annotation Community Group specification and the rationale behind the scoping and technical decisions that were made.
