  1. Ontologies are a path to a goal, not the goal itself.
    • Ontologies are World Views
    • World Views are Hypotheses
    • Hypotheses are Queries
    • Queries are Disposable
    • Therefore Ontologies are (should be) Disposable!

  2. Reasoning is your problem, not mine!

  3. LSIDs provide a great way of solving the ontology-segmentation problem

  4. Ontological predicates can be thought of as, and mapped to, Web Service
