Ooops - I wrote this e-mail early yesterday before I realized Eric N  
is here as well!

I would say both Eric N, Eric M, John, and Elizabeth have been doing  
a wonderful job helping to inform the discussions here regarding the  
value and appropriateness of semantic web technologies and best  
practices as they relate to the issues of scientific discourse,  
publishing and data sharing being discussed at this meeting.

Cheers,
Bill
