We had a most thought provoking presentation from Dr. Mark 
Greaves of DARPA this morning. We had a fantastic turnout.    (01)

Thank you very much, Dr. Greaves, for sharing with us the history 
of the DAML projects, how it is leading up toward the Semantic 
Web of the future, and what it takes to move a program like this 
forward.  Thanks also, to all who called in today, and 
contributed to a very lively discussion after the presentation.    (02)

Material from Mark Greaves' talk is available on our session wiki 
page at:

... in particular, the digitized (mp3) audio recording of the 
entire talk and the ensuing discussion has now been posted. That 
will be archived in our knowledge repository for reference and 
download by anyone interested. Additionally, for the next 10 
days, telephone playback will also available. See details at:
