    - Provide a brief description of your background
      My bio is published in Diversity Careers Magazine Sept,2000.
      (scroll down to the middle of the article to read my bio)    (01)

    - Describe the personal goals and objectives that are
      driving your participation in Ontolog
      My responsibility at Boeing is in the area of XML Data Interchange
      which enables system interoperability and eBusiness.
      I participate in several standards groups, in particular,  I use the
      example to prove out the standards work and recommend improvements: 
      ebXML, UNCEFACT - Prove ebXML architecture, define standard 
                                      business process (BP), and core
components (CC)
                                      supporting the business process.
                                      common BP & CC in public registry for
                                      across industry. Boeing example
                                      is publicly available.    (03)

      OASIS-UBL - Define standard eBusiness documents by reusing ebXML
                          core components. Have completed purchase order and
                          order response documents.  Available from OASIS
UBL site.
                          An example from Boeing is in work, available in
Nov.    (04)

       OAG (Open Application Group) - provides a set of XML documents.
                                                       contributes to the
OAG extensions white
                                                       paper, it is
available from OAG site.    (05)

       AIA (Aerospace Industry Association) - moving towards XML.  Applying
                                                                to solve the
interoperability problem
different data element names
different standards.    (06)

       ATA (Air Transportation Association) - moving towards XML. ATA XML is
                                                               in the Boeing
ebXML example above.    (07)

    - List your areas of interest
      To achieve interoperability, there needs to be a "SINGLE" 
      standard, however,  XML language is so flexible, every
      standards group creates their own.  Developers needs
      to continue mapping to yet to another "standard".  Can 
      we apply ontology to align the different yet similar data
      elements defined in these standards?      (08)

    - List any ideas that you have for discussion topics
      1) The relationship and difference in ontolog, top maps, semantic
      2) For system interoperability, the focus is on data elements,  
      what is the right approach?  
      3) For document centric application, the focus is content, 
      what is the right approach?    (09)
