Hi Scott (and others),

I will not be able to make it today.

And I think I found which telcon's are most interesting to me (LODD
and BioRDF), though several others have my interest too. Last two
weeks I have been working from home a bit more, with no option of
dialing in, so attending as much as possible from IRC. However, I
found it difficult to use this mechanism to report on the things I
have been up to...

So, I was wondering, what would be the best way to do this? Just send
an email to this list, and mention that:

- I converted NMRShiftDB.org into RDF, with NMR spectra for small,
drug-like molecules
- linked to that, Bio2RDF and to ChemSpider from rdf.openmolecules.net
- we are working on converting the StARLite DB into RDF, which holds
drug-assay-protein-proteinClass relations (though that will not get
online before summer)
- extending Bioclipse with RDF support using Jena, to allow
visualization of structural data, e.g. 3D protein structures, ligands
in 2D/3D

and just ask for feedback? (Thanx to those who already gave feedback
via other channels! And thanx to Kingsley for using the
rdf.openmolecules.net data in one of his applications.)

For the rest, I have the following on my todo list:

* write up my views on similarity of molecules in the RDF world
* write up what I think of SKOS with respect to OWL, and how we used
SKOS in MetWare for those reasons
* write up what my impresseion is of SWAN

It's been grant hunting season here, so been delayed with the above
things. Sorry about that.
