[ppy] just so we are clear ... ONTOLOG (a.k.a. Ontolog Forum) is a
community of practice (see:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?CommunityofPractice ) in the
sense John Seely Brown describes it. We are only supposed to be having
good "drinking fountain conversations"    (02)

Therefore, we don't do standards here -- we will, of course, spin off
a good potential standard project and have that done in a proper SDO
venue (as in the case of the UoM Ontology Standards discussion that
later morphed into the OASIS QUOMOS TC - ref.
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?UoM_Ontology_Standard - which,
by the way, Pat Hayes and I are planning to revive some time soon.)    (03)

That said, we do advocate the adoption of Ontology and semantic
technology into mainstream applications and international standards;
and we do so by collaborating with other communities to move that
agenda forward. The recent joint "OntologyBasedStandards" Initiative
is trying to do exactly what's being discussed now (although, W3C is
conspicuously missing from the roster of our collaborators in this
- See: http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologyBasedStandards
... and for those who missed the Oct-25 Launch and the Nov-8 events,
it's definitely worth catching up from the proceedings at:
-- http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2012_10_25 and
-- http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2012_11_08    (04)
