Thank you very much for the suggestions, Duane.    (01)

1. Not sure whether you meant to suggest these people for the 
10/27 session or for invited monthly speakers. However, we have 
not had anyone from Microsoft participating in Ontolog activities 
so far. Thank you for your recommendation. We look forward to 
having them with us.    (02)

2. Ref. discussion at our last (2005.08.04) call, program design 
and decision (that would include invitations) for discussion 
sessions shall be in the session organizer/moderator (who is 
"appointed" by the community). Therefore, in the case of the 
10/27 session, Nicolas is your man.    (03)

3. As a precedence, Bob Smith has been working closely with Rex 
Brooks (the appointed moderator) to put together the 8/25 
session; and that is working out real well. Therefore, you (or 
anyone else) might consider offering to collaborate with Nicolas 
to put the 10/27 program together. I'm sure having a "program 
committee" (of more than one) in a collaborative setting like 
ours would always make sense.    (04)

4. As for monthly invited speakers (if that is what you meant) 
... we already have a huge backlog ... therefore, we better talk 
about it during regular calls first, have some idea on scheduling 
before making the invitations.    (05)

5. Additionally, it is always nice if we can invite the candidate 
speakers to participate in some of the community's activities 
(come to our discussions, conference calls, ... etc.) prior to 
our inviting them to speak. That way, their presentation stand to 
be a lot more relevant too. Please extend the invitation to these 
people to join us at our sessions.    (06)

Regards.  =ppy
