Andreas,    (01)

Many thanks for saying this. I am pleased that others appear to be 
thinking along similar lines. Patrick Durusau and I conducted an ontolog 
telecon a last year [1]; perhaps we are close to beginning a larger 
discussion on what it really means to federate world views.    (02)

Evolving conceptual spaces that permit combinations of "system" and 
"people" learning from each other and from federated articulations of 
heterogeneous world views seems a worthy goal. Perhaps all of that is a 
different focus for the ontolog community, one I would certainly endorse 
and participate in.    (03)
