    Very interesting, nice stories, good crowd. Interesting to learn that most projects are just at the first stages. I hope we'll see more linked data soon.

      I agree with Lukas: special type of data needs special hackatons: enfostering cooperation between scholars and coders. Maybe organizers should ask some scholars to come up with ideas which can be used as main themes of the day, such as enhancing data with special external vocabularies (e.g. historical place name dictionary), some NLP tasks are evidential, text mining in a given topic, and so on. The scholars collect different materials before the event. On the event the first thing would be short lighting talks on behalf of them, and coders can pick up the theme they like to start working.

      At the Museums and the Web conference last year Q42 held a 3-day hackathon that started with a workshop to get inspiring ideas. Of the 20 people that attended the workshop, only 4 were developers. And some great ideas come forth. One was having tastemakers (like Bieber or Gaga) be a curator and create exhibitions. Sort of what the Rijksmuseum is now doing with RijksStudio. Another idea was creating color profiles of pieces of art, and plotting them on a timeline. Thus you could make visible trends in colors which was interesting for researchers.

      I like Peter's idea: these topics can now be lightning-presented and coders can pick one and get going!

    The meetup will be in room I4, 4th floor of KB building, but unforunately that is not publically accessible. Pls report at the reception/security desk at the ground floor (your name will be on the list) and I or one of my colleagues will take you up to the 4th floor. I'll also put up some A4tjes indicating which way to go... CU tomorrow!

    Dear THODers, as you can see, we have 4 people on the waiting list. For those attendees who realize they won't be able to join the meetup afterall, please change your RSVP-status to "No" so people on the waiting list can take your seat instead.

    Many thanks! Looking forward to a great meetup.

    Excellent, we now have 5 speakers confirmed! To leave enough room for Q&A, drinks, networking and catching up, I think 5 is the max.
