I am starting to participate in a non-naralo-related working group, which 
is requiring me to fill out the SoI form. I have been given a username and 
password. There lots of people listed already, most not part of what I am 
involved with.

Evan's observation is correct, it is confusing, because the term (SOI) is 
used for two different things. Moreover, the other one is really a 
statement of potential conflicts of interest and what it is you do outside
