Middle of packing so ill be brief:

Once things are out of marc and urls are given to the work and
manifestations, annotations will get a whole lot easier and more intuitive
for others to make. Libraries creating (and perhaps hosting) records for
items they hold would be a nice "annotation", especially to record
marginalia, condition and the like.

Do we have any tutorials/examples for the sorts of technical work we intend
to do in open-biblio? I've just looked at the Python/N3/mercurial material
from WilliamW and realise that while I happen to be familiar with the
technology, many people will no be. On the other hand I have no familiarity
with MARC, nor do I know what the abstraction of the OK open-biblio schema

I'm hoping that it may be possible to create a "citizen-bibliographer"
approach to this where each volunteer clones a toolkit and then applies it
to a bibliography (or assigned subset). Is this realistic? If so we should
put some effort into making technical bibliography accessible through
examples and tutorials. Things like:
* convert a MARC bibliography to N3
* visualize the N3 bibliography
* annotate entries in an N3 bibliography.
