Subject: [ontolog] Position Paper Question Set #01
Based on my conversations with Peter and today's conference
I've offered to lead a discussion exploring possible ways to
integrate ontological principles into the UBL effort. The
from this exercise is expected to be a position paper.
The approach that I'm going to use is based on a strategic
model called AtStake. While this approach is normally used in a
group setting, I think that we can make good progress via the
list and conference calls which have been set up.
Periodically, I will post a set of questions for each of us to
answer. I will then monitor the discussion, summarize the
and post the next set of questions, as appropriate.
Please post your responses to ubl-ontolog@xxxxxxxxx
The first set of questions deal with basic alignment:
What's your background? Please provide a brief description.
System and test engineering specifically requirements analysis,
exercise and system level test, and information systems architecture
(plus extensive background in communications - newprint journalism and
Why are you motivated to participate in this discussion?
Understanding the new concepts that will enable more effective
communication and the presentation/transmission of information using
web-enabled technologies. Understand if other complementary options
exist to increase UBL's success factor.
What would you, personally, like to get out of this?
Understanding of the Semantic Web and its utility in standards
What one result would please you the most?
As Lisa, unknown at this time.
