On Thursday 25-October-2007, Ms. Jeanne Holm and Mr. Charles 
White from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California 
Institute of Technology, gave their talk on: "Sharing Knowledge 
in Second Life" in preparation for the NASA-Ontolog "Ontology in 
Knowledge Management and Decision Support (OKMDS)" mini-series, 
as the pre-OKMDS-series tutorial on getting people ready on the 
Second Life virtual world.    (01)

An overview and the strategic significance of virtual worlds were 
wonderfully covered in the talk. Our presenters actually 
delivered their talk both in an augmented conference call setting 
(which most of our community members are quite familiar) as well 
as at their virtual world auditorium in Second Life (which most 
of our members weren't quite familiar.) Our more than 40 
participants at the session were given a demonstration, and 
provided with details on how to get set up for the latter. This 
dual delivery mode (in both 'real world' and 'virtual world' 
settings) is actually going to be how the upcoming OKMDS 
mini-series seminars and panel discussion events are going to be 
presented. The talk was ensured by a very lively discussion.    (02)

Again, thank you, Jeanne and Charley, for giving the session, and 
for initiating some of us (myself included) to the excitement of 
virtual worlds. And, as always, our appreciations go out to all 
who joined us at the event; especially for their contributions to 
the rich discussion we had during the last segment of the session.    (03)

Proceedings of the session are captured on our wiki page, at: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2007_10_25    (04)

In particular, full audio recording of the session, as well as 
the podcast of it, are now available - see: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2007_10_25#nid1519     (05)

As mentioned, the 'Launch Event' for the "Ontology in Knowledge 
Management and Decision Support (OKMDS)" mini-series is coming up 
on Thursday 8-Nov-2007 (see details on the announcement below). 
Mark your calendars, and register you attendance now, if you 
haven't already.    (06)

Best regards. =ppy

******************** Details ************************    (013)

This "Ontology in Knowledge Management and Decision Support 
(OKMDS)" mini-series is a collaboration between NASA and Ontolog, 
and is co-organized by a team of individuals from various related 
communities passionate about creating the opportunity for an 
inter-community, collaborative exploration of the intersection 
between Ontology, Knowledge Management and Decision Support, that 
could eventually lead us toward "Better Decision Making."    (014)

The mini-series will span a period of about six months (Nov-2007 
to April-2008), during which we will be featuring Talks, Panel 
Discussions and Online Discourse on pertinent issues. We expect 
all the talks and panel discussion events to be offered in both 
'real world' (augmented conference calls) and 'virtual world' 
(Second Life) settings.    (015)

Please refer to details about this mini-series on the OKMDS 
project homepage, at: http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OKMDS    (016)
