Simon noted that a number of services had been added to the wiki page since the last meeting two weeks ago. This is good, but there are still more to come, from Simon (SCAPE), Ash and Jeffrey.

There was a discussion of next steps with the list of services. If the idea is to map out the landscape of services, then some coordinates will be needed to classify the services - for example, which preservation threat they address. However this might be too rigid an approach. Ash suggested using mind maps, or other techniques allowing comparison and differentiation of services and positioning with respect to each other such as quadrant comparison or crowdsourced tagging.

There are some mind mapping tools such as Free Mind, Mindomo (www.mindomo.com) or bubbl.us.

Ash suggested identifying users of the services (or of information about the services) to define an end-point (what would they need to know), and then work backwards, rather as was done in the workshop in Brussels. This would help to specify the relevance to the VCoE.

The short-term plan was agreed as a series of actions:

ACTION: Simon to set up outline structure of the deliverable.

ACTION: All (especially Simon, Ash, Jeffrey) to add further services to the list on the wiki.

ACTION: All to think about and even experiment with different ways of comparing and mapping services prior to the next meeting. Ash might be able to mock up a mind map, and Stefan offered to investigate versioning of mind maps to allow collaborative working.

ACTION: Simon to arrange another meeting in about two weeks.
