       Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG) 2008 Conference
          Friday 24th October 2008    Session 20: Wild Ideas

"Wouldn't it be cool if we had a tool to do...."
"Why don't we serve data like...."
"Check out this non OGC GIS system...."
"We need to copy the ideas of community...."
"This online data curation site is awesome...."
"Check what I can do with my super computer other than play World of  
"Cloud computing is allowing me to...."
"Google / Facebook / Flickr process data like this .... why don't we?"

We all have them - wild ideas - and now we all want to hear them.

Have you an idea that you could present for 15 minutes at the 2008  
TDWG conference in Perth?  Perhaps you have something that goes beyond  
the usual schemas, the usual harvesting model, the usual processing or  
visualisation?  There are no limitations, no boundaries other than it  
must relate somehow to biodiversity informatics.  Who knows, maybe you  
can generate some interest, start a working group and next year we'll  
be presenting a new working method.

If you have an idea, please mail Tim and Markus on trobertson at gbif.org  
and mdoering at gbif.org with a brief outline and we'll get back to you.

And if you have a presentation to give, but can't be there in person,  
maybe we can hook up a video link, you can ask someone else to present  
it for you or submit a video presentation?


Markus and Tim
