Subject:   Towards a summary of documents

I haven't seen any volunteers regarding this, so I thought I'd throw in my two cents. Doing a regular summary of unrev-ii and ohs-dev would be an excellent exercise in knowledge management. They are already used effectively on a number of open source mailing lists. For example:

This would be a tremendous way of making our list more accessible and meaningfully indexing our archives. I'd encourage people who are looking for ways to contribute to the bootstrap efforts to volunteer.

At today's meeting with Henry and other bootstrappers at SRI, Henry advanced the concept of a web site that, itself, would become a kind of DKR. That concept involves many different but interrelated ideas, including an online e-zine related to OHS development.

One of the most important ideas is that of a kind of summarization of the many threads/themes that have passed through the Unrev2 mailing list. It seems that this could be handled in several ways, all of which includes necessity of passionate editorial volunteers. If I recall rightly, has all threads archived in hypermail (or words to that effect).

I have been asked to begin the process of solicitation of interest and action in the direction of producing topical summaries. This could be the effort of one, lone, towering individual, or it could be a kind of collaborative comprised of several towering individuals who divide up the territory, say, by thread, and accomplish the task.

Given that there really does exist the framework by which the entirety of Doug's vision as expressed in the Unrev2 series at Stanford may become a reality, let me take this opportunity to suggest that those readers of this post who are capable of taking on some aspect of this summarization task please notify either this list (click reply, type YES, click send) or forward a YES to, say... ...or me at

Profound thanks in advance.
