I am working closely wih (and am being funded by) DARPA's HPKB Jumpstart
effort here at ISI to create a "real" standardized Upper Ontology of a few
thousand nodes from Sensus/Pangloss, MIKROKOSMOS, and possibly CYC (with
Fritz's help), and to make that available to (at least) the Jumpstart

The first release date, of just a few hundred concepts, is later this week.

The next release date, of a few thousand, is later this month.

This may be of general interest...

Also, I having fun with the alignment algorithms, which might be interesting
to people who want to try their own (?).

Does all this mean we do have enough for a one-day meeting in November?
