Hi all again. Last week we had some good idea exchange about what we
should put into the next HCLSIG charter, i.e. what we tell the world
we are doing. We agreed that we weren't done and that we'd like to
meet in one week. I invite all to meet tomorrow, Thursday 2 June.
Details at the bottom of the message.

>   LODD - curation of compounds, clinical trials and outcomes.
>   BioRDF - modeling of biological processes and actors.
>   Scientific Discourse - representation and tracking of the changing
>   landscape of scientific knowledge and the driving theora and
>   experiments.
>   Translational Medicine - the oversight and high-level ontology that
>   connects these disciplines together in order to meet immediate and
>   long term needs from pharma, health care and other vested parties.
