We had a great Panel Discussion session on August 10, 2006. 
Co-Moderators Mr. Duane Nickull (Adobe) and Mr. Rex Brooks 
(Starbourne Communications), SOA experts themselves, also put 
together a very knowledgeable panel that included Mr. Ron 
Schmelzer (Zapthink), Dr. Ken Laskey (MITRE) and Ms. Rebekah Metz 
(Booz Allen Hamilton).    (01)

The session was, again, very well attended. Our appreciations go 
out to our moderators and panelists who had put in all the work 
making this session happen, and for sharing with us their 
experience and insights. And, as always, thanks to all the 
participants who joint us and contributed their perspectives too.    (02)

Proceedings of today's session are captured at our wiki page, at: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2006_08_10    (03)

In particular, full audio recording of the session (along with 
the panelists' slides) is now available too - see: 
and are available as telephone playback (for 10 days), as mp3 
download and podcast. The latter will remain in our archives, 
contributing to yet another artifact of community's rich body of 
knowledge that we share with everyone. Thanks again, to all, who 
took part in this.    (04)

Best regards.  =ppy    (05)
