Ontology Development with Protégé

Does anyone reading this use the Protégé Ontology Editor and Knowledge Acquisition System from Stanford? If so, what do you use it for, and what do you think of it? Also, do you specifically do anything using Protégé-OWL?

I have used it, mostly under duress. I found it easy to use, but it scaled terribly and the database backend was laughable. It's ok if you're going to be using it temporarily to scale things up, or once for a project, or recommend as a compatible tool for something you are using. I'd think very carefully before making it part of your long-term infrastructure, though.

Protégé: thanks for your reply
Of all the folks who would know, I definitely want to hear from you, Duane, Tim Wake, etc. I don't plan to make it a part of my long-term infrastructure per se, but I know Tom Russ at ISI and he seems to use the reasoner (not the DB back end AFAIK) and the editor.

Re: Protégé: thanks for your reply
The primary issue you're going to have to worry about for most tools is scalability. If I were you, I'd look to tools where scalable triple-stores is an explicit goal. Unfortunately, I don't have any specific recommendations.

Although it's not on topic per se, I'd like to highlight that neither Duane or I are at RG, and that presumably Tim still is. I can catch you up on email if you'd like some more context.

RG
Yes, I know you went to Mathematica and that Tim is still at RG. Last I heard, Duane is at NCSA. E-mail is good.
