  • explain that the 3/15am UO Application Dialog session was NOT intended to be a vendor parade, but rather an opportunity to convince developers of ontological applications the merit of extending from axiomatized (common) public upper ontologies rather than reinventing their own, and convert them to "adopters" of the deliverable UO we are working toward
  • revert back to the focus of the 3/15am session to be the place where we are going to have dialogs between UO custodians and stakeholders, potentials funders and potential adopters, where they can explore issues of mutual concern, especially around application issues.
