351101 - Follow up ref SDS 86 0000, ref SDS 84 0000.
351103 - Tom Munnecke requested information on network bookkeeping to research
351104 - transformational information systems, evidently from having bumped
351105 - into an SDS record. He did not link the source record; a reply to Tom
351106 - reminds that creating connections to expedite the work only takes a
351107 - second using SDS explicit links. Found and forwarded information that
351108 - looked promising for addressing Tom's inquiry. Tom responded noting
351109 - that links are generally good practice. He is a VP with SAIC where
351110 - Roy Roebuck worked when Roy inquired about doing an NSF proposal on
351111 - SDS in 1999, which invites questions based on fascinating references
351112 - in Tom's second letter. ref SDS 0 1N7I Tom submitted information on
351113 - his work in health care and philanthropy, including ideas related to
351114 - Knowledge Space, ref SDS 0 1M9I He asks interesting questions that
351115 - reflect professional advice to "study what works," based on 20 year
351116 - record of SDS and Com Metrics improving the practice of management.
351117 - ref SDS 0 E63H Tom's background developing architectures to support
351118 - health care systems for DOD and the VA, ref SDS 0 1N7I, may relate to
351119 - his questions about SDS, ref SDS 0 U14K, and shows common ground to
351120 - advance technology emobdied by a core idea in a paper Tom cites: Can
351121 - what counts be counted? ref SDS 0 J484 As well, the entire GameSpace
351122 - group demonstrates a lot of good ideas for making a big difference in
351123 - the lives of people and communities. Tom's letters today offers a

351544 - On 020131 DOD is striving for transformation, ref SDS 73 QF4H, but it
351545 - is a big challenge, ref SDS 73 KW9N, that requires ingenuity and
351546 - persistence. ref SDS 73 6L5K
351548 - ..
351549 - An example, is difficulty people have linking the record to create
351550 - sequence of cause and effect, reported on 020610, ref SDS 82 6M6G, and
351551 - discussed further below. ref SDS 0 TV9K

351605 - within reach. People using work product from SDS indicate transition
351606 - from information to a culture of knowledge lifts civilization, shown

351608 - the magic of alphabet technology makes people "superhuman," reported
351609 - on 010622. ref SDS 59 N668 USACE reported on 971007 that using SDS
351610 - for Communication Metrics to add "intelligence" to information created
351611 - with traditional ways of using alphabet technology, saves time and
351612 - money at the rate of 10:1. ref DRP 2 7400 A return of 10:1 points to

710908 - Inquiries without a link or a reference date to the original source
710909 - that makes it fast and easy to understand context, and facilitates
710910 - timely response, reflects cultural inertia that slows progress on
710911 - transformational systems, as noted recently on 020723. ref SDS 87 6K5F
710912 - citing earlier analysis on 020530. ref SDS 79 WK4H
710914 - ..
710915 - Submitted ref DIT 1 0001 to Tom saying...
710917 - 1. Responding to your letter on 020725, it helps to get a link to
710918 - the record for context in responding to inquires. Click on the
710919 - double dots showing an explicit link and copy the address from
710920 - the location bar, then paste it to your letter, as related in
710921 - the record on 020320. ref SDS 76 0001 It only takes a second
710922 - and this small investment saves a lot of time and money for
710923 - others to understand communication and take appropriate action.

710926 - On 020608 KM experts fail to provide links. ref SDS 81 YL8I
710927 - Review on 020610 indicates cultural barriers to creating a
710928 - connected record for managing context. ref SDS 82 6M6G
710930 - [On 020812 another KM expert made same mistake. ref SDS 92
710931 - TV9K
710933 - ..
710934 - On 020618 growing evidence shows that investing 10 seconds to
710935 - create links for a knowledge repository of organizational memory
710936 - that saves time and money using addressability that is provided
710937 - free by SDS is resisted by cultural inertia that lacks a
710938 - tradition of creating a connected record. ref SDS 83 1383
710939 - Cultural resistance to improvement aligns with Andy Grove's
710940 - comments at Intel that people like to work on familiar things in
710941 - familiar ways, reviewed on 980307. ref SDS 29 3740 If we can
710942 - make familiar work faster and easier, people are pleased, like
710943 - speeding up a car or a truck on the highway, or an aiprlane in
710944 - the sky. But, as Grove's colleagues noted on 990718, empowering
710945 - people with a new of way working "intelligently" at first sounds
710946 - funny, foreign, and alien, and so is resisted by cultural
710947 - viscosity of ignorance, fear and denial, ref SDS 38 1767, and,
710948 - ref SDS 38 2150, until leadership empowers people to gain
710949 - experience with a new way of working for a sufficient time to
710950 - discover that working intelligently is safe and effective, also
710951 - noted by Grove commenting on Intel founder, Gordon Moore, on
710952 - 980307. ref SDS 30 1660
710954 - [On 020730 report that Intel discovered that positive
710955 - incentives complement negative encouragement for empowering
710956 - people to discover that a new way of working saves time and
710957 - money. ref SDS 91 RS5N
710959 - ..
710960 - It greatly increases the chances of getting a response by
710961 - lowering the level of effort, and experience using explicit
710962 - links changes attitudes about saving time and money, also
710963 - reported on 020618. ref SDS 83 MU6H

710972 - 90 Seconds to Find Information in Relevant Context Without Link
710975 - ..
710976 - 2. For example, today, it took about 90 seconds to get the records
710977 - you seem to have in mind. This effort entailed interpretation,
710978 - and then looking up a subject and calling a report. ref DIT 1
710979 - 8I6L What if I made a mistake interpreting what you said, the
710980 - time could have doubled, tripled or worse, taken up to 5 minutes
710981 - using SDS where everything is in the right place at the right
710982 - time, as reported on 010425. ref SDS 58 EP7F Some people might
710983 - have said, "Hey, I don't have five seconds, to do a favor, must
710984 - less 5 minutes, and as a result, give up because it is too hard
710985 - to find anything, as reported on 011003, ref SDS 66 EC5N, and
710986 - earlier on 010916. ref SDS 64 KA6H just days after the nation
710987 - was attacked on 010911, because it was too hard for the national
710988 - security team to find relevant information in time using the
710989 - methods everybody likes. ref SDS 62 UP5K When communication is
710990 - not fast and easy, people give up because the task is too
710991 - complex, noted by Drucker, reviewed on 931130. ref SDS 8 3851
710994 - ..
710995 - Transformation to Good Management Aided by Explicit Links
710996 - Links Enable Transformation Information to Save Time Money
710997 - Attitudes About Good Management Transformed by Big Cost Savings
710998 - 900% Cost Savings Encourage Invest 1 Second for Good Management
711001 - 3. If you had supplied a link, as shown below, it would have taken
711002 - only one second or maybe 2 or 4 seconds, if the system is slow
711003 - today. ref DIT 1 TT9F That's within the worse case scenario for
711004 - even the laziest, inconsiderate, apathetic interlocutor to
711005 - respond. In other words, good technology reduces the amount of
711006 - diligence needed for good management to nearly zero. When good
711007 - management takes nor more time than bad management, attitudes
711008 - suddenly change. A lot more people say, "Hey, why not do it
711009 - right and look it up instead of guess. After all, it doesn't
711010 - take a lot of diligence to click a link."

711023 - In addition, look at cost savings of 900%, 450% or, at worst,
711024 - 250%. ref DIT 1 SA5M Any way you look at it, multiplied across
711025 - the nation of people looking things up, that's a lot of savings,
711026 - particularly when combined with the cost of fixing mistakes when
711027 - people try to get by relying on remembering only the gist of
711028 - things, because they don't have time to find correct
711029 - information, reported on 011003, ref SDS 66 EC5N, and earlier on
711030 - 000927. ref SDS 49 PO4F
711032 - ..
711033 - 900% savings on using SDS just from taking 10 seconds to create
711034 - a link, and 2,000% to 3,000% savings over traditional methods
711035 - everybody likes, ref DIT 1 LE5N, aligns with ROI of 10:1 found

981455 - Double-Entry Bookkeeping
981458 - ...is a word document, so will not take time to format it for
981459 - full review. The introduction is instructive....
981460 - ..
981461 - 1. Double-entry bookkeeping (DEB) was developed during
981462 - the fifteenth century and was first recorded in 1494 as a
981463 - system by the Italian mathematician Luca Pacioli .
981464 - Double-entry bookkeeping has been used for several centuries
981465 - in the accounting systems of the market economies throughout
981466 - the world. Incredibly, however, the mathematical formulation
981467 - for DEB is not known, at least not in the field of
981468 - accounting. ref OF 6 CQ5G
981469 - ..
981470 - 2. Mathematical basis behind DEB (algebraic operations on
981471 - ordered pairs of numbers) was developed in the nineteenth
981472 - century by Sir William Rowan Hamilton as an abstract
981473 - mathematical construction to deal with complex numbers and
981474 - fractions [Hamilton 1837]. The particular example of the
981475 - ordered pairs construction that is relevant to DEB, called
981476 - the "group of differences," is the one used in undergraduate
981477 - algebra courses to construct a number system with negative
981478 - numbers ("additive inverses" in technical terms) by using
981479 - operations on ordered pairs of positive numbers (including
981480 - zero). on ordered pairs of positive numbers (including
981481 - zero). All that is required to grasp the connection with
981482 - DEB is to make the identification: ordered pairs of numbers
981483 - in construction of positive and negative numbers = two-sided
981484 - T-accounts of DEB (debits on the left side and credits on
981485 - the right side). ref OF 6 PR6I
981487 - ..
981488 - Mathematics of "ordered pairs" is a model of binary
981489 - structure that dominates existence, explained in NWO,
981490 - ref OF 3 5846, and discussed in POIMS. ref OF 1 O87L
981491 - Double-entry bookkeeping is a form of the verification
981492 - methodology SDS enables to strengthen understanding,
981493 - ref OF 1 18F8, that occurs along a continuum between
981494 - binary structure in cognition commonly described as
981495 - subconscious and the conscious mind, also, noted in

AB0809 - I have been working on notions of HealthSpace and GivingSpace
AB0810 - for health and philanthropy, respectively. The basic theme is
AB0811 - that we have "transactional" systems which attempt to manage

BO0805 - Heather Wood Ion wrote a thoughtful paper on...
BO0807 - "Can What Counts be Counted?"
BO0809 - ....referenced in Tom's letter. ref DRT 2 G48L
BO0811 - http://www.givingspace.org/papers/may2002/Heather1.doc
BO0816 - ..
BO0817 - This is a powerful idea for proactive efforts to prevent
BO0818 - problems embodied in Com Metrics, per Tom's background in major
BO0819 - procurement programs, noted below. ref SDS 0 IX5M
BO0821 - ..
BO0822 - Heather presents background on the title of the piece formulated
BO0823 - to discuss prenatal care that is not counted using traditional
BO0824 - metrics that focus on transactions of sickness and treatment,
BO0825 - rather than prevention.
BO0827 - [On 020911 Tom explains GivingSpace is a transformational
BO0828 - space on the Internet using open source software to improve
BO0829 - philanthropy by increasing public accountability maximizing
BO0830 - humanitarian uplift for generosity and compassion.
BO0831 - ref SDS 95 J85F
BO0833 - ..
BO0834 - A big question that arises in Communication Metrics is how to
BO0835 - formulate useful "metrics," as seen by discussion on 950204,
BO0836 - ref SDS 13 0937, and later on 950223. ref SDS 14 5567 and
BO0837 - ref SDS 14 8896
BO0839 - [On 020911 Tom recalls challenge of creating meaningful
BO0840 - metrics for communication that counts the most to advance
BO0841 - civilization. ref SDS 95 5X6H
BO0843 - ..
BO0844 - Accurcy is the weakness of communication that SDS improves by
BO0845 - adding alignment to avoid mistakes. This might be measured by
BO0846 - counting the number of links that reflect the potential for
BO0847 - errors.
BO0849 - ..
BO0850 - Good management to prevent problems is an issue that arises in
BO0851 - Com Metrics where executives will pay any amount to fix
BO0852 - problems, because that shows up on the balance sheet, but are
BO0853 - unable to pay anything for proactive management to avoid
BO0854 - mistakes, because prevention and deterrance bring deferred
BO0855 - rewards that are hard to count. see...
BO0857 - Deferred rewards.................... POIMS, ref OF 1 SK7L
BO0859 - ..
BO0860 - Calculating savings not easy........ POIMS, ref OF 1 LE6L
BO0861 - ..
BO0862 - Communication predicate to action so
BO0863 - savings from improving communication
BO0864 - much greater than measuring cost
BO0865 - and schedule metrics.................. NWO, ref OF 3 29G5

BO0868 - Executives lack faith to try....... 890809, ref SDS 2 8211

BO0877 - Planning to count what counts
BO0878 - most............................... 020607, ref SDS 80 0001
BO0880 - ..
BO0881 - Literacy is presented by Heather for transforming education,
BO0882 - which fits the model of advancing toward a culture of knowledge,
BO0883 - where the practice of literacy using alphabet technology is
BO0884 - strengthened by SDS for "intelligence" support to "connect the
BO0885 - dots" for understanding cause and effect, per POIMS. ref OF 1
BO0886 - 6649
BO0888 - ..
BO0889 - This group might therefore take up the larger problem of
BO0890 - cultural forces in the work place that suppress literacy,
BO0891 - developed in the record on 991108, ref SDS 40 7380, and
BO0892 - consequent need for continual learning posed on 011029,
BO0893 - ref SDS 68 MT6G, that transforms the frenzy to graze on
BO0894 - information into a powerful culture of knowledge, noted in
BO0895 - POIMS. ref OF 1 MQ6J and ref OF 1 SK7L

BU0918 - Tom may have met Roy Reobuck at SAIC who asked about SDS in a letter
BU0919 - on 990215, ref SDS 32 3510, and later on 990417 submitted ideas for a
BU0920 - proposal to NSF. ref SDS 33 6897 Recently, on 020217 Roy's views on
BU0921 - SDS demonstrated advantages of transformation from bad management to
BU0922 - good management, which seems evident in Tom's letter today.

BU0926 - [On 020729 Tom called, and sent letter presenting these action
BU0927 - items. ref SDS 89 LR4M
BU0929 - ..
BU0930 - Roy's work with DOD and expertise with large scale procurement issues,
BU0931 - fits the model of Tom's work on large scale architecture for DOD, so
BU0932 - they might have touched base at SAIC, and this would provide
BU0933 - orientation for Tom in understanding SDS and Com Metrics.
BU0935 - ..
BU0936 - What is Tom's take on Roy's proposition that Com Metrics, enabled by
BU0937 - SDS, enables people to make...
BU0939 - communication count the most
BU0941 - ...in human affairs, as related on 020217, ref SDS 75 9360, even

BU0955 - FAR DCMA DOD Present Large Scale Management Challenges
BU0957 - Tom's work on architecture for large scale DOD and VA projects would
BU0958 - have interacted with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR). This
BU0959 - experience enables comment on challenge to use good management under
BU0960 - conditions of chronic information overload, noticed recently in review
BU0961 - of defects in FAR requirements. ref SDS 77 IY4I

BU0968 - ..
BU0969 - Tom's goals to strengthen large scale transformations aligns with
BU0970 - concern that all systems degrade to entropy, absent proactive methods
BU0971 - to maintain alignment between daily communication on work in progress
BU0972 - and objectives, requirements and commitments, reported on 970707.
