Members (or potential members) of the [CCT-Rep] project team:    (01)

I would like to invite your review, input and response to the following:    (02)

1. Please provide input on our "project mission statement" (or, 
project charter, as some may call it) and provide your suggestions, 
comments, wordsmithing, ... etc.    (03)

see: http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?CctRepresentation#nid010    (04)

Let's open this up for review and comments for one (1) week, and then 
the team can finalize and adopt it. [If no additional input is 
received, the mission statement will be automatically adopted, "as 
is", one calendar week from now.]    (05)

2. To really pace the project and keep its momentum, I would suggest 
that we run a regular, but optional weekly conference call. The email 
forum will still be the normative medium of communications (unless 
otherwise stated) , but the weekly calls can provide a realtime 
interaction for core team members and should improve on the 
effectiveness of project progress (even if the exchange during the 
call is not definitive). I suggest we aim at a 30 minute call (1 hour 
max) each week for the core team members to sync up. Based on the good 
turnout of the last call, may I suggest the two following time slots 
as candidates:    (06)

   (a) Thursdays 4:00 pm Pacific Standard Time -- this would mean 4:00 
pm in California; 7:00 pm in Washington DC (EST); 0:00 midnight in 
London; 1:00 am in Berlin; and, 8:00am in both West Australia and 
Beijing; or    (07)

   (b) Thursdays 3:00 pm Pacific Standard Time -- this would mean 3:00 
pm in California; 6:00 pm in Washington DC (EST); 11:00 pm in London; 
0:00 midnight in Berlin; and, 7:00am in both West Australia and Beijing.    (08)

Please respond and advise which would work (hopefully both) and which 
would you prefer. If neither works for you, but you do want to 
participate regularly, please propose some alternatives for consideration.    (09)

3. All: As we plan to move this project forward quickly, I am hoping 
that we can have some decent email traffic around it. I would like to 
hear from both team members and non-members, whether they feel we 
should start a separate mailing list for this project, or whether we 
should  just keep the discourse on our regular [ontolog-forum] (at 
least for now, until we see a real need to separate it.)    (010)

P.S. may I take the opportunity to welcome Lisa Colvin 
(http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?LisaColvin) for signing up 
with the project team as an observer. Welcome to the team, Lisa. -ppy    (012)
