We had a very productive operations planning & review conference 
call (aka. active members regular weekly call, when there is no 
scheduled event) today. Proceedings of the session can be found 
at: http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2007_02_01    (01)

A few particularly exciting items were announced. Among them:    (02)

1. Dr. Tom Gruber has accepted our invitation to join us in the 
"Ontology Summit 2007" organizing committee, participate in our 
virtual discourse, and be our keynote speaker at the April 2007 
summit face-to-face symposium (at NIST, Gaithersburg, Maryland, 
USA.) ... special thanks to Pat Hayes for putting me in touch 
with Tom.    (03)

2. W3C (the World Wide Web Consortium) is now officially a 
co-sponsor of the "Ontology Summit 2007" program.    (04)

2a. I, hereby, again, solicit our members to try to get the 
company/organization/institution they are affiliated with to 
endorse our cause, and allow us to list them as co-sponsors. See 
how we define "co-sponsors" last year, and who are among them 
last year and this year (respectively at: 
) ... we don't expect to change that definition this year. 
Therefore if your organization agrees to be a co-sponsor, please 
drop me a note to that effect. We need all the support we can get 
to make this a successful event.    (05)

3. In response to an earlier suggestion on providing better 
feedback to the community on how we are doing, members can now 
view our Ontolog-cwe (collaborative work environment) site 
statistics, like: who in the world is coming to our site, how 
many visitors or hits to our site are we getting a month, which 
"talk" is getting the most downloads, ... etc. etc. Do check out:    (06)

  o  the <ontolog.cim3.net> clustrMaps - 
http://clustrmaps.com/counter/maps.php?url=http://ontolog.cim3.net     (07)

  o  site traffic - http://ontolog.cim3.net/webalizer/
     [auth: ontolog-member/ontology]    (08)

Fyi ... we are getting approximately 60,000 visits (about a 
quarter of a million hits) per month, and amazingly, some talks 
have an amazingly 'long tail' (like getting hundreds of downloads 
a month, despite the fact that those talks were actually given 
more than 2 or 3 years ago.)    (09)

Don't miss the rest of the proceedings - see: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2007_02_01    (010)

Regards.  =ppy    (011)

P.S. for those who are unaware, we don't "announce" this regular 
weekly conference call on the [ontolog-invitation] or 
[ontolog-forum] lists. These operations planning & review 
conference calls are held on Thursdays (when we don't have an 
'event') starting at 10:30am PST / 1:30am EST / 18:30 GMT/UTC (or 
  10:30 AM PDT / 1:30 PM EDT / 17:30 UTC). They are typically 
one-hour sessions. You will always be able to see them scheduled 
at our http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?MeetingsCalls 
page. A post will probably be made under the the "News & 
Announcements" section on the wiki too (especially if the call is 
being canceled or rescheduled from the regular time slot!)  =ppy
