As I feared, I've got to go to other meetings so I won't be in the conference call today.

Thanks, Norma

We did receive a few feedback (not a lot, but see
on regular conference call time preferences.

We also briefly discussed the matter during our 3.12.03 conference
call. A recap of that and the follow-up is as follows:

1. We, as a community, will be transacting business mainly over the
email list and the wiki, and NOT the conference calls, as
participation (in view of the highly internationalized distributed
membership, ... etc.) will never come close to that of the archived,
async "meeting" that is constantly going on over the [ontolog-forum].
Therefore, our REAL working meetings are always in session, in
asynchronous mode, among all members.

2. We should, however, do short weekly conference calls (say, 30 min.
nominal, 1 hour max.) anyway, to build rapport; sync up; distribute,
assign or arbitrate virtual ownership of tasks; and use it to deal
with emergencies. (see

3. Of the few feedback received, Wednesdays, seemingly, is NOT a very
popular time (at least for those who responded.) It was suggested that
we should just name a time, and let people juggle their schedules to
participate, when they feel the need to.

4. May I, therefore, propose the two alternatives below:

(a) Tuesdays, Start Time: 10:30 AM Pacific Std Time
(b) Thursdays, Start Time: 10:30 AM Pacific Std Time

fyi, time (a), for other locations can be referenced at:

5. Kindly feedback by noon PST tomorrow (3/17) if you have a
preference for (a) or (b) above.

6. Upon the feedback, I will schedule the conference call (like last
time) and route the invitations to people who were already on my list,
plus new respondents, indicating interest in joining the calls. I will
also post the time/access details to the forum for everyone else.
