Hi,

Here are some news re. the Info Service Ontology:

It has now an own repository [1] + mailing list [2]. Feel free to join 
the developing process or leave comments/suggestions/critics. You are 
welcome ;)

Cheers,

Bob

PS: Please also note that there is a new links to the ontology and its 
graphics/examples [3,4,5].
