DanC: Foundational Web Model(s)
DanC: from Massimo; a call for formalism in Web Architecture writings
DanC: the cyc context vocab seems like a good treatment of logic-meets-communicaiton-protocol
DanC: i.e. a reasonable approach to "flattening" a model like my HTTP larch model
DanC: meanwhile, cyc's logic is pretty far out in the weeds (higher order, nonmon, not much specification)
DanC: hmm... "PRA seems adequate once we are committed to a syntactic approach to verifying translators." --
DanC: yes... fundamentally, we communicate thru the web with documents. (i.e. syntax)

larsbot: In the long run it could; depends on what there's interest in
DanC: see also W3C WebOnt WG

DanC: ok... updated cwm with no problem
DanC: sent a msg to www-rdf-calendar
