Re:   Comments on KM Paper (correction)

for the response [in
SDS record
January 26, 2001, to my paper
also, on January 26, 2001...]

I'm not sure what your issue is with PDFs. They're a universal print format, you can copy text from them, and their non-editability is an advantage in distributing potentially protectable work like this.

My paper was written in LaTeX, and if I have anything to say about it no Word version will ever be available ( 1/2 ;-> ).

Beyond that, I was looking for specific comments in your respsonse:


...about my paper, rather than your theory of KM.

You noted I didn't speak to temporal representations, and that I agreed that it was critical for KM. It is, and is representable in semantic hyperwebs as a link type with the property of having a total order. This can be called out in a future version.
