Dear Doug,

Confirming our discussion this evening, the record on December 20, honoring your technology award at SRI, reports that Jack Park and Brian Lincoln are translating your Augment NLs program into JAVA. As we discussed, to expedite developing an architecture for Hyperscope, consideration might be given to asking Jack and Brian to work on Hyperscope instead of translating Augment at this time.

Your support for the Communication Manager role is greatly appreciated. This can help SRI with coordination issues Pat commented on in a letter today, and it, also, provides experience to guide SRI research in learning about KM.
