Good question, Bob. My take is ...    (03)

1. The answer is "no", though a good number of the people in the 
ontolog community are actually OASIS members, or work for Institutions 
that are (which gives these individuals OASIS membership privileges, 
if they so desire.)    (04)

2. In fact, that may not be a bad idea, given their annual membership 
fees being:    (05)

Organization Membership:    (06)

1. Sponsor: $ 13500.00
2. Contributor > 10 employees: $ 5750.00
3. Contributor < 10 employees: $ 2750.00
4. Contributor: Non-Profit: $ 1000.00    (07)

Individual Membership: $ 250.00    (08)

Presumably, we qualify for the $1000 fee, and if we have four or more 
individuals, we could make it less expensive for people. I think we 
should start considering this, if we start collecting membership fees.    (09)

3. If your questions is whether or not we are an OASIS TC (Technical 
Committee) then, the answer would be "it wasn't intended to be."    (010)

OASIS is chartered to be an open eBusiness (originally XML) 
interoperability/standards body. "OASIS is a not-for-profit, global 
consortium that drives the development, convergence and adoption of 
e-business standards ..." (see 
Their core strength and focus remains in the XML space.    (011)

Ontolog has a different mission, but meshes well with theirs, 
especially in the 2nd clause of our charter (see: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl#nid011).    (012)
