Hi folks,
I've made an annotated list of companies and other institutional 
organizations that I believe to be interested in a potential semantic web 
rules W3C standard.  It's intended to aid discussion around 
developing/proposing the charter for the Rules Working Group, and start the 
of providing evidence to the W3C Advisory Committee that there is 
sufficient interest to justify forming a Rules WG.

I suggested to TimBL yesterday the idea of making and propagating such a 
list, and he was very positive about it which helped motivate me to do it.

The list includes a bunch of current W3C members, both large and small, as 
well as other organizations that are not W3C members.
It's based in considerable part on the participants and contacts that I and 
my co-conspirators (esp. Said Tabet and Harold Boley) have developed in the 
RuleML Initiative and in the related efforts in DAML, Joint Committee, and 
SWSI (Semantic Web Services Initiative).

I've attached MS Word version and plaintext version.
Unfortunately, I can't access my webserver til early next week due to some 
security glitches.
The list will then be posted on my site, at
