To the www-talk Group:

I would like to invite interested parties to participate in the Human Markup Language Initiative.

Humanmarkup is an open non-proprietary endeavor, open to the contributions of all parties interested in helping define human XML standards.  These standards define various aspects of *human* communication process through markup, including 'gestures', 'thoughts, 'emotions', and 'attitudes'.  Our focus will be in determining both the organizational layers, and individual units, of human communication.  The ultimate aim is to develop a standard that will reduce human misunderstanding, and enrich human communication, through HumanML-XML.

An OASIS Discussion List and Technical Committee (www.oasis-open.org) is on target to begin in the near future.  All OASIS members interested in formally participating in this discussion, please contact me directly.

We have created a Yahoo Group which precedes, and will work in conjunction with, this Technical Committee.  All parties interested in contributing to the process may want to join the group.  The link is: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/humanmarkup .
(*This Yahoo group is open to all interested parties...please jump into the discussion head first with your perspectives.)

Our initial support proposal is located at our website sent out to xmldev mailing list is at http://www.humanmarkup.org/proposal/oasisprop.htm.  If there are any concerns as to what is done, and what needs to be done, contact me directly.

My role is to ensure proper coordination of contributions, at this initial stage.  We will be working with different organizations which span the field of human communications and XML.  There would be much value in contributions of ideas and directions from experts in various areas of XML and human expression/communication.

Please feel free to forward this information to anyone else who may be interested in participating in this endeavor.

Regards,
Ranjeeth Kumar Thunga
