The context is that one of the creator of the MO ontology has written to
us, but not to the list (to avoid spam).
Please, find below my answer already sent to him and now sent to the
list with his email removed ...
I will consider now that all discussion should take place on the list.



Dear Frederik,

I understand, but your email address already gives 6 results in google
[1] from your
post on the simile or the rdf-in-xhtml mailling lists.

The use case mentionned is currently drafted in the wiki page [2]. It
will be part
of a general document showing some interoperability problems when using
multimedia formats. In particular, this use case will try to show how
can benefit from using both high level metadata (a la ID3 tags) and
automatically extracted from audio files that might be represented using
ther kind
of formats (traditionally MPEG-7).

Then, stay tuned on [2] and more generally on the activities of the
Semantics Incubator Group [3].

Great, could you make an annoucement on the public mailling
once this ontology is available?

Thanks for your comment.
I will send it to the whole list after removing your email address, even
though it
think it is silly !
Best regards.
