Mr. Anders W. Tell presented to the Ontolog community a most 
comprehensive survey of pertinent ontological issues relating to 
the eCommerce and electronic business collaboration domain. The 
set of slides he prepared for the session (a shorter version 
which he presented, and full version which included background 
material as well) is something we'd probably want to go through 
time and again.    (01)

Thank you very much, Anders, for the talk and the slides. Thanks 
are also due, as always, to those who participated at the session.    (02)

Material from today's event is available on our wiki 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

days, telephone playback will also available. See details at:
