Hi All,    (01)

Great virtual meeting today! Proceedings are available 
at the wiki session page: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2006_11_02    (02)

1. The testing of the new conferencing service went 
real well. Thanks to all who came to help out on the 
testing, we were able to satisfactorily exercise all 
the features of the system with participants from the 
USA (West Coast, Central and East Coast), the UK, 
Austria & Turkey. Looks like HighSpeedConferencing.com 
will be the service we'll start using from the next 
session onwards.    (03)

2. We had a good community planning session too. A 
whole bunch of good ideas emerged. The participants 
made suggestions on how we could do a better job 
evangelizing ontological engineering, on what we could 
do to engage institutional support, and help ensure our 
sustainability. See highlights captured in the 
proceedings at: 
... among others, we are soliciting support froim all 
existing members to help spread the word (by mentioning 
the Ontolog Community and the rich body of knowledge 
that we have in our repository) in their future 
conference and speaking engagements. We'll try to 
prepare some stock material for use by any member who 
needs it ... but, before that is made available, please 
contact me offline, if any of you would need such 
material in the mean time.    (04)

3. We had a wonderful sync-up with Carl Mattocks 
regarding the ONION project startup. Carl will be 
officially announcing, and making a call for 
participation in the ONION project shortly. Please be 
on the lookout for that.    (05)

4. We have also decided to do a session on Thu 
2006.11.16 4:00pm~6:00pm EST to familiarize members 
(especially new members and potential ONION team) on 
how to effectively make use of our collaborative work 
environment (archived mailing list, wiki and 
shared-file workspace.) ... This will be on the same 
day as our 2nd  "Database & Ontology" mini-series event 
(but half an hour after that session is over. We'll be 
announcing that event in a separate message shortly. Do 
mark you calendars now!    (06)

If you couldn't make it to our call, but is interested 
in how it went, I have posted three (3) recorded 
segments of the conference call. They will serve, both 
as a test on the quality of the conference recording 
service, as well provide a next level of details on of 
our work/discussion today. Check out:
