ERRATA - (with thanks to JohnGraybeal for help catching the errors)    (01)

In all my haste last Thursday (trying to get ready for the
OntologySummit2008 launch event) I made a total mess toward the end of
the message below (timestamped: Feb 7, 2008 7:58 AM PST). Therefore,
please ignore the second half of that message and read the following
instead ...    (02)

Now that we have put this exercise behind us, let us go ahead and do
some *real* work. In particular:    (03)

1. we are still looking for people to tell us what they can/will bring
to the table on this initiative. Please enter them into the wiki page
at: http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OOR/ActiveMemberContribution    (04)

  [... no update.]    (05)

2. Besides studying some very well thought through inputs (say, from
Farrukh, Leo, etc.), we still need your input into a few key areas -
see: http://ontolog.cim3.net/forum/oor-forum/2008-01/msg00041.html    (06)

  [... a wrong link was supplied in my original post.]    (07)

3. do note that our next call is scheduled for Wed 2008.02.13 - 1.5
Hr. starting at: 12:00pm EST / 9:00am PST / 17:00 GMT/UTC. Please mark your
calendars now and refer to details at the wiki session page (closer to
the time) at: 
( ... I am still waiting for RSVP's)    (08)

  [... the date was correct on my post, but the time was wrong. Please
use the time shown above, or the ones posted in the wiki session
page.]    (09)

4. The OntologySummit2008 Launch Event is coming up in about an
hour-and-a-half (from now). Since it was this team that originally
proposed the main theme for this year's Summit, I hope everyone can be
there at the Launch and voice how they want the Summit to proceed. See
you there shortly!
Details at: http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2008_02_07    (010)

  [... this, of course, has come and gone. Full proceedings of the
session can be found at the session page cited above now.]    (011)

With my apologies.  =ppy
