Subject: Invitation to join Emergency Management Community/CollaborativeWork Environment

Hi Everyone,

I want to extend an invitation to all recipients of this message to 
visit a wiki page I have set up to facilitate building an Emergency 
Management Community as part of a larger Public Service Preparedness 
Portal that my company Starbourne Communications Design is building 
for the Non-Profit 501(c)(3) Corporation, Humanmarkup.org, Inc.


I want to note immediately that this effort is in no way intended to 
provide for the kind of work that can be done in the OASIS Emergency 
Management TC wiki. This wiki and community and is intended to 
provide for efforts that either extend beyond what is appropriate for 
the OASIS TC wiki or that are inappropriate for that wiki altogether, 
such as building applications, conducting collaborative research or 
working with companies, non-profits or individuals who are not 
interested in standards work, per se, but which seek to collaborate 
with partners in the Emergency Management community.

As a way to show the kind of facility this portal and wiki and 
mailing lists can evolve into, I suggest you visit the federal 
collaborative work environment that has evolved over the last few 
years in service to the communities of practice that now exist to 
extend beyond the traditional agency boundaries, encouraging the 
effort in the federal government to increase information sharing, 
and, incidentally, demonstrate ways in which consolidating 
information will increase performance, and reduce costs associated 
with maintaining the voluminous data archives of the government.


As most of you know, I am still recovering from a bout of pneumonia 
with a slight apparent dose of congestive heart failure thrown in for 
good measure, though that proved much less of a factor than 
originally thought, thanks be. However, even six days out of the 
hospital, I still tire easily, and I am not up to sustained work yet.

So, I am taking what advantage I can of this situation to put this 
effort in motion. So, if you would like to use this facility for more 
of the work that can extend our efforts in the EM TC and in the 
HumanMarkup TC, please drop me a reply, and I will start building a 
mailing list for this community, and we can schedule some time for a 
teleconference to give you a brief introduction to the wiki and get 
you started on having another environment in which to build projects, 
particularly collaborative efforts such as extended testing of 
implementations of the standards we are producing.
