Peter and all

thanks for organising this serie, which I will follow asynch
Is there such thing as 'asynchronicity' in a 3D virtual world btw?

With respect to 'decision making', games theory has underpinned much of the
thinking in modern social sciences

Today I am exchanging with Dr Wolpert at Nasa (checking some facts about entropy actually) and I think a pointer to the most current work in this area might be of interest to this forum, particularly in the context of the serie

The jist is that for the purporse of information theory, game theory and statistical physics
are analogous, Wolpert says


He has some interesting views on the role of information theory in the future of science etc

"Ontology in Knowledge Management and Decision Support (OKMDS)."
We take pleasure in announcing the first two sessions:

   --Thu 25 Oct 2007* - Ms. Jeanne Holm & Mr. Charles White from
NASA/JPL giving a pre-series Tutorial on Virtual Worlds - Getting
Ready for "Second Life"

  ******************** Details ************************

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."

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.

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

You are cordially invited to join us at the following two sessions:

*Thu 25 Oct 2007* - Ms. Jeanne Holm and Mr. Charles White from
NASA/JPL will be giving a tutorial to prepare all those who are
interested to participate in this mini-series through "Second
Life", or simply just to explore what the 'virtual world setting
has to offer - Please refer to details at:

*Thu 08 Nov 2007* - "OKMDS: Making Better Decisions" Launch Event
for the Series - hosted by Ms. Jeanne Holm (NASA/JPL), Mr. Andrew
Schain (NASA/HQ), and Mr. Peter Yim (Ontolog) - Please refer to

*RSVP* by by emailing Peter Yim at <peter.yim@xxxxxxxx> offline
so that we can prepare enough resources to support everyone.
