Lately I have been just lurking in this group, but if I see any of you in Guangzhou I will take the oportunity to inquiry about your progress. I think you are doing a great job!

Other thing: being now an outsider, I think that maybe Florian is right and the scope or the mission statement should be rewritten or extended. The current text may not be enough and perhaps not completely accurate.

The mission of the Media Annotations Working Group, part of the Video in the Web Activity, is to provide an ontology and API designed to facilitate cross-community data integration of information related to media objects in the Web, such as video, audio and images.

Thanks Victor.


I am personally quite agnostic. OWL 2 is an option but the question is still the same in terms of acceptance and penetration. How do you see this?


We can chat over this in Guangzhou in 2 weeks.

Will not be OWL 2.0 directly used?
Problems could be overcome if the right profile is chosen...

I don't have to justify myself and give names. I am reporting what I hear from discussions on different reflectors dated yesterday (not browsing all chats).
If people have concerns about the compatibility of OWL FULL, that's enough for me to ring a bell.  I need  more than what you said to reassure me on the choice (although as I inferred in my previous mail some OWL FULL features are attractive).
What would tell me that OWL FULL is well supported? References please...

On the other hand, there are voices/concerns about the support of OWL
FULL by current implementations of OWL APIs.
Old and useless debate.
What are these voices/concerns? References please ...
