[ppy] don't apologize, but instead, please allow us to get back in
focus, and run a high quality, high signal-to-noise collaborative
environment by heeding some of my earlier suggestions (e.g. the
statements that I started with "Please: ..." under:http://ontolog.cim3.net/forum/ontolog-forum/2010-01/msg00207.html#nid07

[ppy] that would depend on what one would like to share. If it is
relevant to the list, share it on the list. If it belongs more to a
network setting, share it on facebook, linkedin, ... etc. ...
Ref. that book you were posting about, I trust you have done some
further reading, and maybe after the first 20 pages, you might already
have discovered that this is more relevant to, say, "Knowledge
Management," "Knowledge Economy" or even "Technology and Society" than
to "practical issues and strategies associated with the development
and application of ontologies," then you should find the more
appropriate community to share your insight (*after* you have gain
some insight) with the relevant community. On your post, your cited:
"Rating: (not yet rated) 0 with reviews - Be the first" ... so, there
you go! ... Amazon.com carries this book too, and has only one review
so far. You can try there too, it has communities built around various
subject matters, and can definitely offer you a much larger audience
[PdM] I did not have the time to write up a commentary yesterday, and
> wanted to capture the reference as I was on it and before it got lost ...
[ppy] Try keeping a notebook (paper of electronic), start a blog, ...
do something else, don't do it at the expense of the entire Ontolog
community, please. ... Maybe the majority of us don't like to hear you
"think out loud" and that is causing much of the tension, and Ontolog
is losing highly respected members of the ontology community because
of it. Can't you see that I am fighting you because you are hurting
this community (and not because of "mind control" or whatever you
suspect i am doing)?
> [PdM] Collaborative knowledge creation starts with sharing resources...
[ppy] sure ... but you should be mindful that Ontolog Forum has a
mission. As an extreme example, sharing cooking recipes with a
community would foster
"collaborative knowledge creation" and result
in better cooking for many (I'm certain,) but it would be totally
PAOLA ... you are a very smart woman, actually too smart for me to
know how to handle, as the convener of this forum. If you are asking
simple questions like the ones above, and cannot respect even very
straight forward requests, it is either:
(a) you genuinely don't know better ... which I don't think is the case,
(b) you think it's funny ... which I doubt; the rest of the
community probably doesn't think this is amusing either,
(c) you feel you have a right to do whatever you like here, at the
expense of everyone else, and you have no respect for the hosting this
(d) you are being disruptive ... and if that is truly the case, you
had better leave the party.
While you enjoy being the center of attention. Personally, I just
to quietly support a community of practice that wants to move the
Ontolog Charter forward; therefore, please don't try to make me repeat
my position over and over again. The only sure way to get to be the
center of attention in this community is to be *really* good
ontologist. Being rowdy will just get you kicked out.
Please take note: being a part of this community is a privilege (that
goes for *everyone* in the community), not a right!
