Jonathan - this looks very important. Calls like this are also a good way of
pushing us to formulate our ideas and bring together the important themes.

Is this a role for the Panton Papers? Should we try to craft these in such a
way that they are useful for policy makers? For example I am currently
interested in things like text-ming (for re-use) semantic bibliography and
citations (for more accurate assessement of scientific output), proper
simple publication of semantic data (very relevant to publishers, etc. -
perhaps not for this call).
