Hi Marc, Peter, Everyone,    (01)

I'm writing a report article on the Semantic 
Technologies Conference, where the Ontolog Forum 
was very well represented, to the extent that our 
members may have comprised the largest contingent 
from a single source, though most of our members 
are also members of other constitutencies, too. 
However, as I started work on this I found that I 
must necessarily include the UOS, which I have 
arranged to handle as a sidebar to the SemTech 
overall article on: March 2006: Watershed for 
Semantic Web.    (02)

So I am at my limit for new projects with both 
the NCOR to HITOP briefing, the April 18th 
Collaborative Expedition Workshop piece and the 
upcoming OASIS Symposium Speaker Session, all of 
which center on the Health Informatics Registry 
our SIA Pilot group is developing. However, in 
the course of these activities, I will keep this 
in mind, as well, and I am certain that a 
particular focus will emerge that I can suggest 
to you, Marc.    (03)

Right now, of course, there is just a lot of 
plain old fashioned work and study that has to 
happen before that focus emerges. However, as I 
work through this, I suspect that a specialized 
viewpoint on Blackford Middleton's CITL analytic 
framework of the 4 levels or stages of IT 
evolution in the healthcare field will prove to 
be the key focus.    (04)
