Hi Ian and all,

interesting compilation.

What I found interesting is that you obviously don't plan to use 
discrete (basic) emotions. Is that intended? Not that I'm a fan of 
those, but I think there are some works in which basic emotions have 
been used. But fine if you came to the conclusion that's not a good 

Second, to the output events: This list seems to be reduced to 
agents. But emotional output will also be generated by other 
applications, for instance by choosing an appropriate background 
colour, sounds, skin of the GUI, or fine-tuned phrasing of text 
messages. If we also want to include ambient intelligence or so 
called smart environments, then there is even more "emotional 
output" thinkable, like dimming the lights, calm or stimulating 
background noise, or odours.
I wonder if the output events class should be generic? There will be 
ever new affect influenceing outputs available to systems.

Or are those applications too far off the intended goal of this project?
