Topic map is an intelectual asset we can be proud of. TM is the best solution for PSI. I don't really see any alternative. Let's make them folks currently ouside our "realm" integrate TM into their own thinking. They have nothing equivalent. Sure they have other important contributions we should learn from and use, but they have nothing like topic maps.

I see no chasm - to me it looks like a green valley, nice place to stroll around.
Well, if there is a canyon in between, let TM be the bridge!
