Hi all,

I am the head of the Knowledge Media Institute at the Open 
University, http://kmi.open.ac.uk.  I have been working on knowledge 
engineering for about 15 years, focusing especially on reusable 
problem solving methods, see 
http://kmi.open.ac.uk/people/motta/book/, and the use of knowledge 
technologies (esp. ontologies) to support knowledge management 
solutions.  I have extensive 'across-the board' experience, having 
worn several 'hats' over the years, as developer of KR languages, 
domain-generic reasoning systems, ontologies, KB applications and 
also as a direct user of these technologies - some of our 
knowledge-based services support activities in our lab, so we don't 
just inflict KB technologies on innocent outsiders...:). Moreover, 
our research group has been developing semantic web applications 
since 1995 and we have a lot of technology which is relevant to 
semantic web activities - see for instance our WebOnto ontology 
server, http://webonto.open.ac.uk.

So, I hope some of this experience may be useful to WebOnt. More 
information can be found on my home page at 
http://kmi.open.ac.uk/people/motta - see also projects AKT, IBROW and 
ScholOnto on the KMi projects page -  http://kmi.open.ac.uk/projects/
