Subject:   Communication Metrics
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Report March 28, 1997


  1. Intel letter May 12, 1997
  2. Welch letter May 9, 1997

Dear Dave,

I would like to talk. As you recall, Communication Metrics is not job-specific, but rather it is a generic utility like the alphabet and the microprocessor.

If you feel it is a good approach, I would like to provide you a copy of the government's report covering some of the ideas you and I discussed last year for Asilomar. My experience has been that Communication Metrics fits into any existing structure, but of course we need to discuss specifics.

Let me know a convenient time to come by and deliver the report and we can have an initial review. Or, if you prefer, I will send it to you, or drop it off on a day when I visit Morris Jones at Chips and Tech. down the street.

Thanks for your interest.
