Hi Sandro,

Congratulations to you and the team on the Ontaria 0.8 release. It looks
great. A very welcome addition to semspace.

This service is addressing some of the same challenges as schemaweb,
swoogle, etc, but in a rather different way.  

Please do look for your favorite ontologies.  If Ontaria doesn't know
about an ontology, give its URI for download in the "Search" box, and
it should be picked up soon.   (There's an automatic harvester which
might pick it up in a few seconds; I come along manually and look at
files it has trouble with.)
