Great! thank you, Michael. (01)
This is Bill McCarthy's session, therefore, please direct any
pre-session content related question to him, if there is any. (02)
As for slides, please email them to Bill <mccarthy@xxxxxxxxxxx>
with a copy to me <peter.yim@xxxxxxxx> by end-of-day 6/29. (03)
If anyone has additional references to share, feel free to (a)
post them to the session wiki page directly (under)
Alternatively, you can also choose to (b) post them to the
[ontolog-forum] <ontolog-forum@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> or (c) email
them to Bill with a copy to me and specifying that they are to be
shared. [ALL: this is applicable to both pre- and post-session.] (04)
Bill and I have got the deck of George's 15 slides
<IPTF_for_Ontologists.ppt> from Steve already, but I believe I
still need a confirmation that that is the set to be posted (with
the understanding that only a couple of them will be used during
the session.) [George - please confirm.] (05)
This is exciting .. I'm really looking forward to next Thursday's
session now. (06)
Thanks & regards. =ppy
