Holger, all,

First of all, my complements to whoever took the minutes.  They were  
wonderful, I had a great sense of your discussion.

And, my apologies for not being there, in my new job it seems I am not  
so much in control of my schedule as I would like. It is my intent to  
reconnect, at least in reviewing and adding value from an offline  
position.

I would like to introduce a topic to discuss at the next appropriate  
meeting (you may have discussed it a bit today).  The MMI device  
ontology has a fair amount of material that is complementary, and  
maybe some material that is contradictory, with the W3C device  
ontology.  I think there is a lot to be said for pushing hard to align  
the two as fully as possible.

There are multiple approaches to alignment (one ontology, one master  
ontology with two extensions, two overlapping and non-conflicting  
ontologies, two entirely separate ontologies), and while I have a bias  
about which is most desirable, I don't have a firm opinion.  I do see  
a lot of advantages to a clear alignment, which I can list at the  
meeting, or in the email thread.

If you haven't already covered this topic, can it be added?  While  
neither of the next two weeks works great for me, I will make time to  
attend as soon as it is on the agenda. And of course am happy to  
provide more information via the list.

Thanks,

John
