Eli,    (01)

Thank you for your message. It's great to learn of your effort.    (02)

As Jon mentioned, we started the [ontolog] effort back in May 2002 
within UBL, and then reconstituted it as an open international forum 
in September 2002. We now have over 60 members in the community -- 
coming from countries like Canada, China, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, 
Korea, Russia, Singapore, UK, US and industries sectors like 
government, manufacturing, ebusiness, technology, standards 
organization, academia ... etc.    (03)

If you are interested to find out more, take a look at:
and the rest of the forum archives:
or the community wiki:
   http://ontolog.cim3.net/wiki/    (04)

Among other things, we are just embarking on a business ontology 
project ("UBL-Ontology") that will attempt to put the most recent 
release of UBL (0p70) into an ontology.    (05)

You are most welcomed to join the community and participate in that 
project (if you like what you see navigating the above links).    (06)
