Great, Mike! "Ontology applications in intelligent social
networks" sounds exciting. I, for one, wouldn't want to miss it.
That fits it nicely into Ontolog's charter, as well as the
Rex/Bob current endeavor on emergency response which they are
continuing with. (01)
I'm am copying this to [ontolog-forum] so see if the topic
resonates with others in the community as well. (02)
Please continue to explore possibilities on the forum ... and
when you guys are about ready, join us at one of the operational
planning and review sessions (these are the regular weekly calls
when we aren't featuring an event) and book a date for it. (03)
Thanks & regards. =ppy
