Yes, I remember how much work was involved in writing last year's BMC-TR 
paper. I didn't mean we're immediately ready for writing another big 
paper. I'm more looking to the future. If we can establish a high 
quality of work/collaboration, we can then aim at writing paper(s)  for 
submission to top journal(s). I hope this will also serve a motivational 
force for people (not just academic people) who're interested in 

I agree that semantic web needs actions now. For example, as mentioned 
in the SenseLab note (future directions), we are interested in working 
with the community to expand "entrez neuron", which was started as a 
collaboration with CCDB (SenseLab and CCDB are part of NIF), to query 
and integrate multiple semantic web datasets provided by different 
neuroscience data sources.

Just my 2 cents ...
