Very likely so.    (03)

But there is also the claim that Azamat makes that links whatever he 
means by "universal ontology" to success of the Semantic Web or 
artificial intelligence.    (04)

But what happens in a case where the results from using a "universal 
ontology" don't agree with a clients view of the world? Telling a client 
their "model" of the world is simply wrong doesn't look like a winning 
strategy to me. Particularly since the "universal" model is itself 
simply *a* view of the world.    (05)

Hope you are having a great weekend!    (06)
