Thank you for your show of interest and support, Ken. (01)
You are probably one step ahead of us, though. (02)
Ref. Ray's post, the task is more on setting up the
infrastructure for: (03)
1. allowing protege ontologies to be served to thin clients, and (04)
2. providing a multi-user development platform to be available to
the community at large. (05)
We intend to have this setup be open and available to the larger
protege community, regardless where they are from (academics,
nih, ontolog, dao, sicop, ... etc.). (06)
What you are alluding to falls into what was discussed at our
Mar. 3, 2005 planning session, when Nicolas brought up the
"eating our own dog food" argument, and suggested we start a
project on "ontologizing" the ontolog content. (see:
). While the discussion, then, evolved around SUMO, I can clearly
see virtues of your suggested approach of having this done over
the protege platform too. (07)
We should continue a dialog on this .. and if there is enough
interest, having such project emerge from the community will just
be great! Please make sure you can join us when Nicolas'
suggested OntologDiscussion session on this topic comes around
(we don't have a date yet, as Nicolas is on vacation ... but stay
