Subject: RE: [legalxml-econtracts] eContracts Date Change,Agenda and Request for Illustrations of Workproduct

Hey Dan,

This is a good agenda to start the ball rolling.

I think you may find support for a 5pm NY meeting. Not sure how many
people are in London but it's, relatively, respectable 10pm in London
and 7 am EST Australia. There does seem a lot of Australian interest but
midnight to 1 am is not a civilized hour for most people. 

I'm good for all the suggested dates or times.

Subject: [legalxml-econtracts] eContracts Date Change, Agenda and
Request for Illustrations of Workproduct

Dear Fellow eContracts Technical Committee Members:

This is just a quick note to welcome the subscribers on this list to the
newly formed OASIS/LegalXML eContracts Technical Committee.  Based upon
the lively and rich dialog on the Discussion List leading up to
formation of this TC, and the depth of our initial membership, I'm
confident that we're in a good position to make some real progress in
this arena.

We had tentatively planned our first meeting for this Thursday at 2:00
pm "New York Time", but I'm sorry to report that we have found that
scheduling around both coasts in the US and for our considerable
Australian contingent an insurmountable task for this week.  And so,
Jason Harrop, Eddie O'Brien and I would like to propose other date/time
options for our first phone meeting and to begin an e-mail discussion of
our agenda.  Please e-mail me back to let me know which, if any, of the
following dates at 10am "New York Time" do NOT work for you in October:

3rd, 11th, 14th (note: Columbus day, but works for us), or the 16th -

We realize the 10am in New York is only 7am on the left coast, but it is
3pm in London and 12 midnight in Melbourne.  One other possibility would
be to hold the meeting at 5pm "New York Time", if we are not able to
find an acceptable date/time at the 10am slot.

Upon consultation with my the co-vice chairs of this TC, we'd like to
propose the following draft agenda for our first call.  Please post to
the private work list for this TC any changes or additions you would
like to see to this agenda.  The list address is:

* Introductions and Statement of Background/Interests Regarding this TC
* Scope and Deliverables: Discuss in Depth and Reach Consensus on
* Final Requirements: Determine Consensus, Where it Exists, and Process
to Close Discussion
* Set Next Meeting Date/Time

In advance of our first meeting, while we are locking down the agenda, I
would also like to encourage members of this list to review the overall
Charter for this TC and begin to communicate your ideas for our work.  I
am partial, at the beginning phase of work like this, to coming to
consensus on a small number (say, 3-5) of simple, narrative scenarios
that illustrate how the final work product would be used and "fit" into
the broader environment.  These little vignettes should be broader than
a narrow technical "use case", but still brief, crisp visions of how the
work product will make something cheaper, faster and/or better.  I'll be
thinking of these illustrations and I encourage members of the TC to
post your own ideas to our list as a way to stimulate our discussions
and to achieve a consensus on our vision.

I am looking forward to getting to know you all better, and to
interacting again with many of you with whom I've had the pleasure of
working before.  Again, I did not expect the scheduling to be as
problematic as it turned out and apologize for any inconvenience the
reschedule may have caused.  From here on out, we'll be sure to keep our
time zones and logistics straight!

All the best,
 - Daniel Greenwood, eContracts TC Chair
