Hello,    (01)

I am Bob Smith, an Ontology and Semantic Web guy currently on a trip into
the rather remote parts of Utah.    (02)

My background involves 30 years as a University Professor in Management
Science-Ops Research, AI, Expert Systems, HazMat Response, business
strategy, and the many legal economic issues in software engineering.    (03)

The vision of an intelligent web service as a strategic support 
element for
small and medium sized business is compelling. Actions expanding this 
demand attention and project execution.    (04)

More when I return to "civilization".    (05)

Regards,    (06)

Bob Smith, Ph.D.
Professor Emeritus, Cal State University
Tall Tree Labs

Dear Ontolog Participant,    (08)

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.    (09)

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.    (010)

In order to get the conversation started, please:    (011)

1) Reply to this message to help us verify that the new
     infrastructure is working correctly    (012)

2) Include in your reply a short introductory statement:    (013)

     - Provide a brief description of your background
       (if you have a bio/resume/cv available online, kindly
       provide us with a link to it.)    (014)

     - Describe the personal goals and objectives that are
       driving your participation in Ontolog    (015)

     - List your areas of interest    (016)

     - List any ideas that you have for discussion topics    (017)

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
