Re: [TaxoCoP] Cimino's Desiderata
- I ran across this list when I worked at Alberta Heath Services and was able to deliver on all of Cimino's requirements (plus a few that he didn't include, like applying the same principles to Person, Place and Physical Assets).

Now I'm doing the same for oil and gas...not nearly as 'terminology oriented' as Healthcare but it's a living! :D
