[14:24] Ken Baclawski: Housekeeping: The web pages look fine.

[14:25] ToddSchneider: Here's another meeting that may be of interest: http://stl.mie.utoronto.ca/fomi2019/home.html

[15:12] Ken Baclawski: We discussed setting up a SWAO Resource on TLO and Ontological Commitment considerations. It is easy to create a blog on the IAOA website for this purpose. Not much seems to be happening in the Education Committee, and it is unclear that such a blog would need to be related to them.

[15:13] Ken Baclawski: As for Upper Ontologies, Barry Smith has a textbook on BFO which is available for free online (apparently not with Barry's permission) that has lots of examples and advice about building ontologies based on BFO.
