I don't.  But maybe people who subscribe to Ontolog Forum
have some serious problems that they are actively working on
(or would like to work on if they had a suitable ontology).    (02)

As we have been discussing, the concept of self interest is
related to many issues in organizations.  Such organizations
would range in size from a family, to a tribe, to a country.    (03)

The original thread started with governments, but it could
just as well apply to businesses:  a "mom and pop" store,
a small business with a few dozen employees, or a large
multinational corporation.    (04)

Before we can consider forming a start-up company to solve
problems, we should try to find at least one problem that
we could solve -- or at least generate a draft of a proposal
for solving it.    (06)

Does anybody have any suggestions?    (07)
