Subject:   Proposal for DKR and SDS

Dear Jack,

Thanks very much for your ideas on moving ahead with the DKR project. I sent Eric a letter asking him to call about a proposal for using SDS as the core capability of knowledge management. I have not yet heard from Eric, but hope to visit with him soon.

The basic elements, phasing, time and business issues are set out in the record of the discussion between you and I earlier today.

My feeling is that preliminary ground work should be done on receptiveness by key people in advance of a formal filing. Please let me know what you think, when time permits.
