Blood, Gold and Dinosaurs

On the 28th of March –

I enjoyed the first day of a very productive meeting of the Europeana Version 1 WorkPackage 3 in Vienna. Filled with discussions of Linked Open Data, Europeana Data Model and actual real-world implementation of philosophical and theoretically correct data models. Perhaps not everyone’s cup of tea, but I certainly enjoyed it.
At dinner we had sort of a brainstorm on potential themes for User Generated Content projects. Europeana is involved in the Erster Weltkrieg in Alltagsdokumenten project. How about less belligerent themes? We agreed that blood, gold and dinosaurs are the best ways of getting attention, as is common knowledge in programming news shows.

Therefore: here is some blood, some gold and some dinosaurs from Europeana.

Models Of Extinct Animals, The Iguanodon
By the way, inside this Iguanodon there was a restaurant (!), so that covers the culinary aspect as well.
