Subject:   Pilot Test SDS to Improve SRI Management and Research

Meeting at SRI on January 22, 2001

Dear Curt,

Checking on progress with the review you planned for POIMS, from our meeting on January 22, when we discussed pilot testing SDS as a strategic technology for advancing the nation and civilization.

There are a lot of reasons for SRI to look into SDS. As earnings and stock markets continue to fall, urgency grows for capability to strengthen competence. Shrinking portofolios foster enabling conditions that encourage people to overcome denial, and look for new answers. Maybe this is a good time to look at SDS. Can we schedule a demonstration?
