261003 - Jack submits planning for an architecture with SDS as core content
261004 - generator of OHS, which seems to be the DKR data base, ref SDS 0 1X4O,
261005 - with functions for IBIS and ontology. ref SDS 0 0S9F  Jack proposes
261006 - two SDS products:  one personal, and another for OHS. ref SDS 0 RG6M
261007 - He indicates proprietary improvements can be made. ref SDS 0 008P  A
261008 - "meme pool" is proposed for a Knowledge Repository and discussion

261010 - submitted previosly on 001130. ref SDS 0 F76O  Jack suggests reviewing
261011 - SDS uses cases during the meeting with Pacific Consultants next week.
261012 - ref SDS 0 00HQ  Jack is in Texas next week delivering a paper on topic
261013 - maps and IBIS technology to improve education. ref SDS 0 WW6G  Topic
261014 - maps may be part of "ontology" discussed today for OHS planning.
261015 - ref SDS 0 I56H Jack's presentation to a professional conference is a

261446 -
261447 -     ...think of SDS as two different products, each with precisely the
261448 -     same front end, but each with a different backend. ref DRT 1 X26N
261449 -

261461 - Jack proposes today.....
261462 -

261464 -
261465 -         •  user interface,
261466 -         •  content generation
261467 -         •  browsing interface
261468 -
261470 -      ..
261471 -     Backends do 2 separate things....
261472 -
261473 -        1.  interface with the OHS core engine. ref DRT 1 H67N
261474 -
261475 -        2.  scaled-down standalone version of the OHS engine (or
261476 -            whatever database structure you choose, including web
261477 -            publishing, as SDS presently does).
261478 -
261480 -  ..
261481 - Jack continues...
261482 -
261483 -     A dual design for SDS, where two products have the same front end,
261484 -     but different "Backends," per above, ref SDS 0 C58M, allows.....
261485 -
261486 -
261487 -         1.  SDS for Personal and work off line.
261488 -
261489 -             In fact, they never need to go online unless they choose
261490 -             to co-mingle some or all of their records with a larger
261491 -             OHS.  There will always be users of SDS that will need to
261492 -             keep their records private. ref DRT 1 008M
261493 -
261494 -             ..
261495 -         2.  SDS for OHS provides much larger environment.
261496 -
261497 -               [On 010329 Jack proposes SDS - Structured Dialog System
261498 -               for OHS. ref SDS 94 XZ4K
261500 -              ..
261501 -             Hopefully, this is not promoting the mainframe idea where
261502 -             people are forced to work online, and depend on others to
261503 -             maintain the record, reviewed on 960304. ref SDS 9 9007
261504 -             If the design merely permits working online, when helpful,
261505 -             and anything online that turns out be useful can be
261506 -             captured so it can be managed and protected from bumbling,
261507 -             then point 2 for the OHS might be doable.
261509 -              ..
261510 -             We must, also, respect binary forces that establish
261511 -             knowledge is a personal survival resource, i.e., "me" and
261512 -             "them," and so it is only shared to the extent momentary
261513 -             circumstances calculate an advantage.  This means it must
261514 -             be flexible to accommodate variability in emotional
261515 -             perspectives, which are a powerful fact of life.
261516 -
261517 -
261518 -     ..
261519 -     Front end would be a core SDS engine.
261520 -
261521 -         Core SDS engine would have an API that allows Backends to be
261522 -         built either way. ref DRT 1 PE8I

451041 -                   complex problems is to improve personal competence,

451129 -                   augments human intelligence.  But that innovation
451130 -                   needs to be provided with stable technology that

AS1305 - Jack suggests identifying use cases that SDS can play a role in for
AS1306 - whatever metaphor you choose.  Should you choose the Lexus/Nexus
AS1307 - arena, there could be lots of fun playing with use cases.  Why mess
AS1308 - with use cases?  That's a fair starting place for writing a white

AS1323 -     This is a good perspective because it leads to a new idea of

BB1138 -
BB1139 -      The Semantic Web initiative offers us an opportunity to examine
BB1140 -      applications of web technologies in the light of many diverse
BB1141 -      domains, an important domain being education. In this paper, we
BB1142 -      examine ways in which the collaborative and ontology-based nature
BB1143 -      of e-commerce solutions can be combined with new technologies
BB1144 -      that support constructivist epistemologies to further enhance the
BB1145 -      many ways in which the Semantic Web will benefit education. We
BB1146 -      explore ways in which the new XTM Topic Map standard can be
BB1147 -      combined with Issue-based Information Systems (IBIS) and features
BB1148 -      of the Semantic Web to provide opportunities for the development
BB1149 -      of critical thinking skills to classrooms everywhere. We further
BB1150 -      outline an approach to enabling classrooms to provide such
BB1151 -      learning experiences in a worldwide collaborative fashion,
BB1152 -      enabling learners to become world-class thinkers.
BB1154 -  ..
BB1155 - The paper focuses on applying "collaboration" with topic maps and IBIS
BB1156 - tools to strengthen critical thinking skills, which is presented for
BB1157 - improving formal education and learning.
BB1158 -
BB1159 -      This follows up Eric Armstrong's letter on 000212 calling for the
BB1160 -      Internet to improve education with a DKR. ref SDS 28 4380

BB1171 -      No examples nor scenarios are provided to illustrate or otherwise
BB1172 -      demonstrate that topic maps, IBIS or collaboration improves
BB1173 -      thinking.  No explanation is given of "thinking" that indicates
BB1174 -      how tools can improve this innate faculty.

BB1178 -         diagrams and screen shots for Nexist. ref SDS 98 LI7H

BB1181 -      Collaboration is promoted by KM people to explain objectives that
BB1182 -      are not well understood, reported on 000615 at SRI. ref SDS 40
BB1183 -      6271  An example is the meeting on 001017 reporting SRI plans to
BB1184 -      help NIH improve collaboration, ref SDS 52 014M, which SRI itself
BB1185 -      is unable to accomplish, reported on 010111. ref SDS 64 EF6M

BB1188 -      POIMS explains "collaboration" is supported by KM; primary
BB1189 -      objective is adding intelligence that converts information into
BB1190 -      useful knowledge. ref OF 2 K84L

BB1200 -      Topic Maps are an effort to use pictures for navigating
BB1201 -      complexity that occurs in life, which is called "ontology." see
BB1202 -      the record on 000221. ref SDS 30 2622  Pictures are a good method
BB1203 -      for learning, based on findings in cave dwellings that show
BB1204 -      people used this method before developing alphabet technology
BB1205 -      about 5,000 years ago.  Jack proposes ontology for OHS
BB1206 -      architecture, per above. ref SDS 0 I56H
BB1208 -       ..
BB1209 -      IBIS is a set of rules for making communication productive by
BB1210 -      adding rigid structuring that nobody wants nor can use for more
BB1211 -      than 5 minutes. Jack proposes this method for the OHS
BB1212 -      architecture, reviewed above. ref SDS 0 0S9F  It was reviewed
BB1213 -      previously on 001130. ref SDS 58 AZ7J

BB1263 -      School work sometimes requires making book reports.  The record
BB1264 -      on 980307 shows how book reports can be improved by an order of

BB1266 -      ref SDS 13 0001  Many other books and articles are reviewed the
BB1267 -      same way, with an added benefit of integrating what is in the

BB1269 -      vital investment to grow intellectual capital.
