2213 - Summary/Objective
221401 - Follow up ref SDS 25 0000, ref SDS 24 0000.
221403 - In a telecon yesterday, Morris asked about progress on OHS/DKR
221404 - project.
221406 - This evening submitted ref DIT 1 0001 confirming discussion that
221407 - progress on OHS/DKR is slow. Curt, like many CEOs has been even
221408 - busier than usual as a result of the slowing economy, per telecon with
221409 - Pat on 010403. ref SDS 26 0001
221411 - Advised of call today to Jo McKensie, ref DIT 1 KQ6J, to schedule
221412 - meeting following up meeting on 010122 with Curt Carlson and Pat
221413 - Lincoln at SRI. ref SDS 27 0001 Letter to Jo confirms understanding
221414 - about scheduling a meeting. ref DIP 3 0001
221415 - ..
221416 - Mention current work on OHS/DKR to develop a linking capability
221417 - called "Plink." ref DIT 1 4V7I This feature was requested by Doug
221418 - Engelbart in a letter on 001025, ref SDS 18 00VU, reflecting earlier
221419 - report on 000824 that OHS/DKR architecture reflects SDS design.
221420 - ref SDS 17 PU5N
221422 - Morris demonstrated MS Word can link web pages in a meeting on 000624.
221423 - ref DIT 1 PW4F see the record. ref SDS 16 D45H On 010122 BrowseUp
221424 - was demonstrated at SRI showing it can link web pages on the Internet.
221425 - ref SDS 21 FT9W
221427 - Explain code is open source and is available for him to examine, if
221428 - time permits. Ask Morris to let me know if he sees anything in Plink
221429 - that seems like it could support SDS. ref DIT 1 PW4F
221431 - Advise Plink work product adopts procedure Doug's people at SRI
221432 - created in the 60s for a program called Augment. The result is, what
221433 - seems like, a link at the end of every para that goes to an anchor at
221434 - the beginning of every para. ref DIT 1 S29I This was useful in the
221435 - 60's as a navigation aid, but doesn't seem needed at this time.
221437 - Plink tries to identify, or, otherwise associate, links with a variety
221438 - of parameters, including version control. ref DIT 1 Y89O
221441 - ..
221442 - New Technology Demonstration Event
221444 - Explain John Deneen has been working on marketing for SDS, trying to
221445 - develop an event he says is planned for two years hence to demonstrate
221446 - technology of the future, presumably a KM-based thing. ref DIT 1 XA5F
221447 - Sounds like the kind of event Intel was planning to support in 1996. I
221448 - tried to get Dave to promote SDS at that time, but he was not
221449 - comfortable with the idea. At Asilomar he said IT causes problems,
221450 - and the problems will get worse, but he would not support a solution
221451 - using SDS. ref SDS 1 1552 A year later on 970603 he wanted to use SDS
221452 - but couldn't get it approved, ref SDS 2 5803, then 2 years later he
221453 - wrote me a letter on 990907 saying SDS does everything I claimed it
221454 - did in 1996. ref SDS 4 0149 Earlier on 990422 he asked "Where to take
221455 - SDS from here?" ref SDS 3 4590 The point is that it seems to take a
221456 - long time to educate people about this thing we call SDS.
221458 - John has the SDS record on the web to demonstrate SDS capability.
221459 - However, the latest discussion with John on Sunday, indicated this
221460 - initiative is not moving very fast, ref DIT 1 WS3F, could have
221461 - something to do with the economy, reported on 001207. ref SDS 19 V54M
221462 - Connecting the dots, a weak economy should be an aid to sell SDS for
221463 - improving earnings, but have to get technologists to quit focusing on
221464 - games. ref SDS 19 MZ7G
221466 - [On 010425 reviewed Morris' comments on SDS Typical Day Scenario.
221467 - ref SDS 28 0001
221469 - [On 010426 Morris asks if people are ready for Windows version of
221470 - SDS? ref SDS 29 0001
