In compiling this list, I am acting as a "DKR" by:
0.8 More contributions 0.7 Contributions, additions from notes, organizing Two new sections: "Ongoing Initiatives" + "Teaching and Learning" 0.6 More additions, including a booklist (WHAT'S A GOOD READING ORDER?) 0.5 Evaluations section, plus list feedback 0.4 Knowledge Management Links 0.3 A couple of corrections, one addition 0.2 Added bootstrap links, changed title 0.1 Initial version
This page provides a collection of references, starting with:
Wicked Problems (
"Back up one directory and you get all the papers from KAW98. Back up another directory and you get all the archived workshops. What a gold mine :-)" ("Especially note the work of Brian Gaines and a project called Sysiphus, as well as others with an underlying notion of ontology") Current favorite book is John F. Sowa, Knowledge Representation.
Category Theory: Mathematics of Relationships
___: Beyond Calculation: The Next Fifty Years of Computing
(Eugene Kim recc's David Gelertner's essay.)
Doug recommended these:
Two public sites that demonstrate the tool:
Discussion following a workshop on multi-cultural design of collaborative environments. Includes search capability.
By David Gelernter ( who originated Linda, which became TSpaces, JavaSpaces, and now Jini and a couple of great books)
...and Don Mikulecky's home page for deeper discussions of knowledge representation in complex domains:
...), as well as "CIM3" (Computer Integrated Man-Machine Manufacturing), a framework I started developing in the mid eighties.
Follow the references and links from there...
E-mail, calendaring, group scheduling, Web access and information management
Distance learning platform integrating live, asynchronous, and self-paced content delivery
Real-time collaboration software solution with chat, whiteboarding and application sharing
Programmable using Java.

WBI (web browsing intermediary) and Java development kit for same:

The CRIT system (some open hyperdocument features using existing technology)
___TBD___ (server location is changing)
Collaborative email/HTML (Berekely startup)

...in particluar the paper on the Arrows system by Brian Rice. IMHO this is the software project closest to the Rosen's ideas (which use Category Theory as a Mathematics of Knowledge)
gIBIS is a graphical implementation of the IBIS concept.
Here is background on IBIS:
Here is an abstract of Jeff Conklin's ACM paper:
This page has a link that appears to go the paper, rather than the abstract, but it wasn't working when I followed it:
A nice diagram of gIBIS concepts:

A potentially valuable paper on system called "Grassroots" that unfortunately has had the line-endings squeezed out of it:
