The third AIS SIGSEMIS bulletin (v1n3, October 2004) is available. SIGSEMIS is the official quarterly newsletter of the Association for Information Systems Special Interest Group on Semantic Web and Information Systems. It features an interview with Tom Gruber, whom the interviewer calls the Ontology Man, who has some interesting perspectives on what kinds of ontologies are really needed to support useful systems. It’s shaping up to be a useful venue for information and news on applications of semantic web technologies to building information systems. While the format looks great and probably requires publication in pdf, it would be even better if SIGSEMIS can eat from the common dog food bowl and publish the bulletin in HTML, maybe even annotated in RDF. After all, tomorrow is another day.
