I am interested in participating from both an Amazon.com perspective and from 
an ebXML / UNCEFACT perspective.      (01)

Note that there are groups from UCC/EAN, OAG, and several other vertical 
industry initiatives that are at the same time monitoring, participating, and 
paralleling the UBL work (OAG is focused on automotive and aerospace, UCC/EAN 
is retail, PIDX is petroleum, RosettaNet is IT industry (Note that Jon Bosak is 
part of the architecture team for RosettaNet which is a division of 
EAN/UCC...), and UN/CEFACT is creating a subset of reusable information 
elements (Core Components) and superset of semantic business objects (business 
entity library) for use by all of these groups.    (02)

An independent ontology effort could either help normalize these efforts, or 
could be seen as repetitive.  Done right it could be quite useful.    (03)

Wonderful! I'm in.    (07)

1. To facilitate virtual team work, I can make our (CIM3.NET) tools
available to the community.    (08)

2. Essentially, we (CIM3) provide a basic suite of both asynchronous
and synchronous tools, and the processes to support distributed
community and project work. Our collaborative work environment may
include:    (09)

  (a) archived email forum (with fine grain linking/access)
  (b) wiki (with fine grain linking/access)
  (c) document repository/file sharing workspace
  (d) Community of Practice (CoP) portal/website
  (e) full-text search
  (f) voice conferencing
  (g) screen/application sharing
  (h) instant messaging
  (i) real-time chat session
  (j) access control
  (k) plus customization to cater to the CoP or project team needs.    (010)

3. We are already using (a) and (e) (at least the part that allows
search on the message archive) now. I can set up any or all of the
above tools, if and when they may become useful to our work.    (011)

4. Yes ... I agree with Farrukh on "open-source" -- that is consistent
with our charter (as an "open" forum, see
and that of OASIS/UBL. Thank you, Farrukh, for offering the ebXML
registry as an option too.    (012)

5. This is exciting ... as soon as we have a reasonable number of
people (say, within the next few days) that are willing to dive in, we
could continue the discussion on the broader base ... but then, a
small team can focus on reaching a shared commitment and understanding
to getting the project started. Therefore please identify yourselves.    (013)

6. Question: who has working proficiency with protégé and is willing
to provide some working guidance/leadership there? Please indicate so.
Based on our earlier survey, protégé is definitely a candidate
tool/platform where we can build the ontology on.    (014)

7. That, obviously, re-opens the whole tools/platform discussion
again. Which is great ... we now have a better, and more focused
reason to talk about that again. (try starting a new thread, though.)    (015)
