Hi Folks, 

Here is a replay of some bits of email in case any of you are interested in
ADEPT and our ontology problems.

>> At the Peirce Project Workshop at ICCS-94 I gave the
>> presentation for the "CCAT" (Conceptual Catalogue) group
>> If you are interested in creating or using "ontologies",
>> this group is the relevant part of the Peirce Project.  Anyone who
>> has created a widely valid or useful type-lattice, graph-base or
>> canonical basis may want to contribute something to CCAT.  Please
>> let me know if you are interested ...

Thanks for your prompt reply Fritz
