Our scheduled Technical Discussion for Thu 2005.06.30, moderated
by Bill McCarthy, is on the subject of "Service Sciences". That
would be an ideal platform to "discuss" this - WSMO & SWSF - if
someone attending the session can talk about it intelligently.

Do we have anyone who can do that, and is planning to come to the
6/30 session? Any suggestion? (02)
P.S. ... just helping keep track of the acronyms: (04)
WSMO = Web Service Modeling Ontology -
SWSF = Semantic Web Services Framework -
