We had an absolutely marvelous virtual session today with 
Professor Barry Smith from the Philosophy Department of the 
University at Buffalo (and Director of the newly established 
National Center for Ontological Research). Professor Smith's talk 
was on "The Ontology of Documents." The perspectives Professor 
Smith shared with us, his thesis of a "document act" in 
particular, as well as the ensuing discourse we managed to have 
during the session, were most thought provoking indeed.    (01)

Thank you very much, Barry, for sharing your work and insight
with us. Thanks are also due to Professor Bill McCarthy for 
suggesting and inviting Professor Smith to speak for us. And, as 
always, appreciations to all who came, participated and helped 
contribute to yet another great Ontolog session.    (02)

The digitized (mp3) audio recording of the entire 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:

Thanks & regards.  =ppy    (04)    (04)
