[Responding to Eric's letter today on defining OHS and DKR...]
Just for fun, I called Doug to see if he could shed light on the definitions of these terms. Here's what I got:
Dynamic Knowledge Repository:
OHS to me now seems almost like the term "MS Windows", which contains the operating system, the look and feel, the philosophy, as well as a set of included tools such as the web browser or media player. But it appears OHS does not represent the content of the knowledge repository or containers (documents).
Doug was thrilled to be asked about it and was happy that we are having dialogs about this because he emphasized how working through terms is an essential part of cooperative knowledge work.
