431308 - ref SDS B0 0001
431310 - a. 010924 arrangements can be made for SRI to participate in
431311 - ownership of SDS, ref SDS A6 V54J, to encourage productive
431312 - partnership on deploying SDS for "analysis" capability to fill
431313 - the gap in national security intelligence. ref SDS A6 0001 and
431314 - ref SDS A6 QW9F
431316 - "Intelligence" advantages of SDS are listed in the record on
431317 - 010924. ref SDS A6 OC5J

431329 - Management. ref SDS 92 0001
431331 - Today, Pat met with the person he wants to help him prepare an
431332 - endorsement, and discussed other matters, but he forgot to mention the
431333 - SDS endorsement issue.
431335 - This is an example of the problem that SDS helps solve by providing
431336 - timely intelligence. Action Items are assigned at the touch of a key,
431337 - and can be assembled just as quickly, so we meet, make a call or
431338 - write a letter, we are prepared to be effective, using clear, concise
431339 - and complete communication.
431340 - ..
431341 - Pat apologized for slow progress. He has been very busy with a
431342 - hectic schedule.
431344 - Pat indicated he would send an email today making the assignment for
431345 - helping him prepare the SDS endorsement, and request that the person
431346 - review the proposed draft endorsement, ref DIP 4 UP8V, and send a

431349 - can be contacted to expedite review and understanding of the

431353 - ref SDS B0 0001
431355 - [On 011102 met with Pat - no progress on making this assignment;
431356 - will try pilot testing SDS to make progress. ref SDS B1 AD4F
431358 - I asked Pat if he feels I am being too burdensome?
431360 - ..
431362 - Pat indicated he would prefer someone else be the point person on SDS,
431363 - because his schedule does not have a lot of extra time.
431365 - SDS is a software program.
431367 - Pat is Director of Computer Science at SRI.
431369 - SDS is a new kind of capability, as noted by Morris on 911123,
431370 - ref SDS 5 0477,
431372 - The letter to Morris, ref DIP 8 FV7N, earlier today points out
431373 - that even Justice Mosk, ref SDS A9 KO4G, recognized SDS is a
431374 - new way of working in the meeting on 911130. ref SDS 6 ST7G
431376 - SDS advances literacy that enables moving from IT to a culture
431377 - of knowledge by adding intelligence to strengthen alphabet
431378 - technology for the first time in over 2,000 years. This
431379 - supports SRI's mission for advancing civilization and the
431380 - nation, as discussed on 000725. ref SDS 51 0008
431382 - On 000716 Professor Ransdell at Texas Tech University pointed
431383 - out that SDS applies a theory of management based on a
431384 - communication process that has eluded discovery since the 17th
431385 - century, so it is an ambitious effort. Professor Ransdell
431386 - anticipated slow progress, and urged staying the course,
431387 - because this is a path that can lift civilization. ref SDS 50
431388 - 7838
431390 - On 010730 Stuart Harrow at DCMA noted SDS is a new way of
431391 - working, ref SDS 97 N49N, that presents paradigm shifts which
431392 - are illusory barriers, like "deer traps", that make it
431393 - difficult for people without experience with SDS to grasp,
431394 - explained on 010712. ref SDS 93 2O6I
431396 - On 010924 Morris explained why SDS and the new way of working
431397 - is hard for people to grasp. ref SDS A5 NK4J
431399 - Since SDS is a computer initiative, and is hard for people to
431400 - grasp because it advances present practice, and since Pat has
431401 - experience working with SDS records that has enabled him to grasp
431402 - that SDS is an important advance, and since nobody else at SRI has
431403 - this experience, Pat is the only person at SRI who can facilitate
431404 - progress on SDS at SRI.
431406 - We are working on expanding the people at SRI who can consider
431407 - SDS, and this takes starting with the people who currently
431408 - understand it.
431410 - Pat said he will send me a copy of the letter making the assignment,
431411 - per above. ref SDS 0 U78M

SDS Work Product Difficult Out of Reach Beyond Grasp Sour Grapes Givi
520701 - ..
520702 - SDS Work Product Seems Out of Reach So Called Overkill, No Faith
520704 - We considered psychological pressure people feel when encountering SDS
520705 - records, and sensing work product in SDS cannot be done by anyone
520706 - else.
520708 - Morris noted on 010924 that nobody else has experience producing work
520709 - product for organizational memory like SDS. ref SDS A5 XT5F This lack
520710 - of experience prevents belief and faith in ability to do the work. On
520711 - 921205 faith is a major factor in improving work practice. ref SDS 9
520712 - 8493
520714 - Without faith, the tendency is to attribute Rod with extra gifts or
520715 - merely willingness to do extra work, and then give up on improving
520716 - email and conversation, as Jack Park reported on 010908, due to the
520717 - overwhelming attractiveness of "feel good" management that encourages
520718 - bad management, ref SDS A2 YF5O, by calling good management overkill.
520719 - ref SDS A5 LZ6F and ref SDS A5 L17F
520721 - Pat feels that our goal is to get other people using SDS so they have
520722 - the tools to produce effective analysis as reported on 950204.
520723 - ref SDS 12 4995
520725 - Sent email linked to this record confirming understandings.
