introducing: The Fishnet Organization
these are temporary (or semi-permanent) hierarchies, that emerge out of the CoP's, which capitalize on distributed capabilities to achieve specific purposes; when those purposes are achieved (or when the opportunities no longer exist), they disband, and the resources (people, knowledge, skill sets) are returned to the CoP's where they come from.

Activities are community driven; we are neutral, open, and we are not answerable to any authority or institutional structure, except for (explicitly) our charter & IPR policy, and (implicitly) our professional integrity.
We are adamant about collaboration, sharing and open knowledge… and are trying to spur organic or emergent behaviourin the community and our project teams
… but, we all know, this is VERY important, and we are passionate enough about it, to want this to work out
... this is NOT a “zero-sum game”!
one last conjecture:
… it might just depend on
‘our attitude toward collaborating to bring ontology into the mainstream’
The Dao that can be articulated is not the eternal Dao
The Name that labels is not the eternal Name
In the beginning there were no Name
Through Names all things come into being
from the“Tao Te Ching” - Lao Tzu (circa 500 B.C.)
