Daml PIs -

but now let me rephrase it to you folks -- the fact that we have not 
had new ontologies added or new pages found by the crawler since the 
last DAML meeting does not bode well for any of your continued 
existence in this program!!  If you're not using DAML - then go find 
someone else to fund your work.  If you are, make sure you are 
letting us know about it by registering ontologies, or by creating 
more DAML out there and linking you stuff to the web site.
  Let me re-emphasize this -- if I somehow didn't make it clear in the 
past that I want you to be creating ontologies/using DAML - then here 
it is now.  No DAML, no funds.  As simple as that.
