Hi all,

... in case you're wondering about the "it will all end in tears" bullet, that's a *joke* :) ... I began the talk with a 
story about a project I worked on a while ago where everybody would argue all the time, sometimes getting extremely 
frustrated - the point of the story was just to say that, in my experience, most disagreements are not disagreements at 
all, and arise because people are actually trying to solve different problems or answer different questions - the moral 
of the story being that we need to be absolutely clear about what problem we want to solve with SKOS!
