We had a really wonderful presentation and discussion session 
entitled "Sky Captain and the Service Oriented Architecture 
Reference Model of Tomorrow" by Duane Nickull of Adobe Systems, 
UN/CEFACT & OASIS earlier today.    (01)

Thank you, Duane. Thanks to all those who were able to join us at 
the session in person, and for the stimulating discussion we had.    (02)

The archive of the session is available at our wiki session page 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2005_02_17#nid022    (03)

information have now been posted too, for those who missed the 
session, or those who would want to revisit all or part of the 
session again. (See:

> Presentation & Discussion, by Duane Nickull
> Abstract:
> This presentation is divided into two distinct parts, the latter 
> building of the first. Session one is designed to promote a discussion 
> around what Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) really is. Many people 
> are talking about SOA and most define it by relating it to a concrete 
> implementation such as web services. The session justifies a new 
> approach chartered by the OASIS SOA Reference Model Technical Committee 
> to define SOA abstract of any specific implementation. If SOA is

> attempt to distill out those elements into a SOA reference model will 
> likely be a stimulating topic. Ontologist's point of view will be

> distributed SOA infrastructure and how mechanical intelligence could be 
> bestowed upon applications that someday may acquire true cognitive 
> capabilities.
