I sent a note about Cyc in what I thought was a private
conversation with Doug Skuce.  But I did not realize that
there was a cc to Ontolog Forum in the note he sent me.    (01)

In my note, I made a comment about Pat Hayes that was based
on a private conversation in 2004.  I apologize for sending
that info to a public forum.    (02)

Among other things, Skuce and I were discussing some issues
about Cyc and the reviews we had each written in 1993. That is
what led me to send him a note that AI Journal articles could
be downloaded for free.  I also sent a shorter version of that
note to Ontolog Forum, but Skuce replied to the copy that went
to Ontolog.  Then I replied to that.    (03)

For the record, following is a copy of my review.  Even though
it's over 20 years old, the points in it are still relevant, and
they apply equally well to many current projects in ontology:    (04)

In a conversation about my review, Doug Lenat said that it was
"fair but painful".  What was painful is that the weaknesses
I criticized were ones that the Cyclers were still working on.    (06)

Sad to say, researchers in AI and the Semantic Web are still
working on those same weaknesses today.    (07)
