Go for it Joe!

I've also touched base with Mark McGillivray who did a lot on the JISC
Bibserver project and copied Dave Flanders who was program manager in JISC.
Dave has been a great supporter of Open Scholarship. See
http://openbiblio.net/p/jiscopenbib2/, http://openbiblio.net/p/jiscopenbib2/.

This is how I think projects should develop - someone enthusiastic picks up
where the last initiative finished. Don't be constrained by any of our
visions if they don't fit. A lot has happened since the end on
OpenBibliography and the world's attitude has changed. Then , bibliography
was seen as closed or uninteresting; now it's seen as Open and I think most
GLAM institutions are positive about releasing their metadata.

I have always believed in communities and I hope one grows round you,
MiTar, JimP and other people. We really need Open Bibliography for
scholarship. To the extent that contentmine.org produces exhaust
bibliographic data we'll be happy to help.
