Hey Scott,
I'm not sure if you've been CCed on any of the developments around the
GeoLexicon project that we are kicking off?

As you can see from the participants in the manifesto linked in the thread
below, Rob, Reese and Ron are already involved.
Beyond their contributions, I think the OGC could really help by lending
your name to the project, and inviting OGC member organisations to stand up
their own glossaries as part of the pilot.
This could potentially start with a blog post that one of our tech writers
(CCed) could pull together, based on our project manifesto.

What do you think?
