I'm involved with the Linked Pasts initiative , part of Pelagios. It seems to me that our groups have similar, or at least complementary, goals. Specifically, we want to develop Interconnection Formats which will facilitate the virtual merging of Linked Data authorities for entities such as people, places and events. I am urging the group to use the CIDOC-CRM to express these Interconnection Formats, although that battle is not yet won. :-)
Sadly I already have commitments for 23-24 November, but I'll keep in touch with your work through this forum, and will let you know of any substantive progress that we are able to make.
