Hi All --    (01)

Congratulations to Peter Yim for arranging an excellent discussion with 
Jim Hendler today.    (02)

In the discussion, I asked Jim for his thoughts about how to work 
towards interoperability of rules systems for reasoning over ontologies 
and the semantic web.   Part of his reply (if I recall correctly) was 
that one should start with something simple that works, and then 
incrementally extend it.    (03)

The question of interoperability of rules systems was the subject of a 
recent W3C workshop [1].   In a paper in the workshop [2], I floated the 
idea that, since there are diverse commercial and other rules systems -- 
that are unlikely to be replaced by a single standard any time soon  
--   one could start simply by  working towards a standard for message 
based interoperation.  The paper [2]  suggests that there would be 
significant advantages in  making the messages readable by non-technical 
folks.    (04)

There was  some post-workshop online discussion about this, starting at 
[3] with the suggestion that there are three different kinds of 
semantics that could work together to make the SW more meaningful.    (05)

Would the Ontolog community be interested in continuing a discussion on 
this kind of topic?  If so, there's a presentation available,  and/or we 
could Wiki-ise it.    (06)

Thanks in advance for your thoughts about this.    (07)
