Dear Ontolog Participant,    (01)

First, let me (individually) and us (collectively) thank all of you 
for joining the reconstituted Ontolog discussion group.  If the 
timing of this posting is right, it will be the first message you 
receive through the list.    (02)

I am quite encouraged by the volume of the responses.  We sent the 
invitation out to 41 people; so far, 19 of that group have 
joined.  Another 19 have also joined, giving us a total of 16 active 
participants and 25 observers.  We expect a few more to trickle in 
over the next week as word-of-mouth continues and the UBL committee 
members get back from their meeting in Massachusetts.    (03)

In order to get the conversation started, please:    (04)

1) Reply to this message to help us verify that the new
    infrastructure is working correctly    (05)

2) Include in your reply a short introductory statement:    (06)

    - Provide a brief description of your background
      (if you have a bio/resume/cv available online, kindly
      provide us with a link to it.)    (07)

    - Describe the personal goals and objectives that are
      driving your participation in Ontolog    (08)

    - List your areas of interest    (09)

    - List any ideas that you have for discussion topics    (010)

While the conversation of late has been rather light, Leo posted a 
very informative comparison of DAML-S and BPEL4WS that came out of 
Stanford's Knowledge System Laboratory.  It can also be accessed
