Brand,    (01)

Thank you for making the concrete (and actionable) suggestions to 
FHA-ONCHIT. This is wonderful!    (02)

Brand, we already have a planned "invited speaker" session today. Maybe 
we can make this discussion the key agenda item for next week's call 
(i.e. the 2005.02.03 ontolog call that starts 1:30pm EST / 10:30am PST), 
if that is OK with you. If you prefer that even sooner (or have a 
conflict), please suggest one or two time slots that would work for you.    (04)

That said, since we have Conrad Bock from NIST speaking today, and 
Conrad has been NIST's representative on the HL7 Clinical Decision 
Support Technical Committee, we would likely touch upon some 
health-related discussion anyway. (However, that might not happen until 
the "open discussion" segment of the session, which probably would be 
after 2:15pm your time. Unfortunate!)    (05)

More specifically, since your suggested examples will be in SUMO, I'd 
like to find out about Adam Pease's availability too [attn: Adam: please 
advise, as I remember you saying that you may not be available for a few 
weeks at our last call.]    (06)
