Meeting with Rod at SRI to Discuss Endorsement for SDS
2809 - ..
2810 - Summary/Objective
281101 - Follow up ref SDS 51 0000. ref SDS 48 0000.
281109 - ..
2814 - Administration
281501 - Sent Pat an email saying I am leaving for Menlo Park to meet at 1100;
281502 - will likely be a little late. Pat can get started by reviewing ideas
281503 - for a "blueprint for KM," reported on 030525. ref SDS 54 0001
281507 - ..
2818 - Discussion
281901 - 1. Endorse SDS and Com Metrics
281903 - During the meeting today, Pat seemed to confirm he is willing
281904 - to issue a letter based on the language in the draft he
281905 - approved on 020729, ref SDS 27 4K6G, and he related willingness
281906 - to issue a stronger endorsement, as discussed on 030521. He
281907 - has not done any work on this. We did not review today
281908 - concerns about the draft submitted on 030417, ref OF 11 0001,
281909 - which Pat raised in his letter a few days ago on 030520.
281910 - ref SDS 53 0001
281912 - ..
281913 - In particular, we did not discuss today Pat's concerns that
281914 - citing the record in SDS can be addressed by....
281916 - (1) reviewing SDS records. Click on a few links to assess
281917 - support for representations of fact in the knowledge
281918 - repository of organizational memory, as set out in
281919 - reviewing Pat's comments on 030520; ref SDS 53 WV4H,
281920 - and...
281922 - ..
281923 - (2) citing the SDS record as a "report," and not as a fact,
281924 - in the manner of citing any other authority for which
281925 - first hand knowledge is not available, as related, also,
281926 - on 020520. ref SDS 53 RJ39
281928 - [On 030805 these concerns cited as pending issues in
281929 - record of telecon with Pat. ref SDS 61 ZZ99
281933 - ..
281934 - 2. Blueprint for Advancing Knowledge Mangement
281936 - Apply planning on 030525. ref SDS 54 0001
281938 - ..
281939 - FCS proposal for joint report with Aerospace company and SRI
281940 - based on Gary's progress, per report this morning. ref SDS 55
281941 - 0001
281943 - ..
281944 - Pat advised that SRI has a small involvement in FCS, but not in
281945 - his department. He is familiar with the project, the scope and
281946 - importance of the undertaking. Pat feels combat is very
281947 - complex and still somewhat vague about deliverables. Most are
281948 - in the research phase, which is a good place for using Com
281949 - Metrics to help people "connect the dots" into a comprehensible
281950 - picture. Pat cited SDS support for OHS/DKR illustrated this
281951 - methodology. (examples are records of meetings at SRI listed on
281952 - 001017. ref SDS 11 1575) On 000725 Pat commented faborably on
281953 - SDS, ref SDS 10 F545, and feels today this would be helpful on
281954 - any major project.
281956 - [On 040221 Jack Park asks about getting access to Gary's
281957 - records using SDS on the job in order to study knowledge
281958 - management. ref SDS 62 7W33

610402 - 3. Selling New Ideas Frustrating People Just Don't Get It
610403 - Just Don't Get It Linking New Way of Working Intelligently
610404 - Give Up Disillusioned Selling Knowledge Management Frustrating
610406 - Pat explained frustrating experience working on OHS/DKR caused
610407 - reluctance for SRI to continue marketing research services on
610408 - developing Knowledge Management. For example, Doug's letter on
610409 - 000405 directed the team to add linking in email that
610410 - implements Knowledge Management with traceability to original
610411 - sources. ref SDS 5 2484 On 001027 Doug reported this failed.
610412 - Even when he provided explicit links in the OHS/DKR launch
610413 - plan, nobody cited content in the launch plan document for
610414 - collaborating with links, reported on 001027 0907. ref SDS 12
610415 - FK4F
610417 - ..
610418 - The team was somewhat handicapped by not having tools that make
610419 - linking fast and easy. Even Doug did not use links his email,
610420 - because he did not have tools that make creating links fast and
610421 - easy. There was no body of record for creating links. This
610422 - led Eugene Kim to propose that the OHS/DKR team use regular
610423 - email rather than SDS for performing Knowledge Management,
610424 - reported on 001126 2149. ref SDS 13 T63N
610427 - ..
610428 - Knowledge Management Difficult to Explain Without Experience
610429 - Experience Enables People to Understand Power of Knowledge
610430 - Linking Cause Effect Yields Power of Knowledge Requires Experience
610432 - SRI difficulty understanding Doug's work during the year 2000
610433 - reflects prior difficulty at SRI in the 1960s, reported on
610434 - 001220 1600. ref SDS 15 UG7K As well, in the 1970s IBM and
610435 - McDonald Douglas had difficulty understanding benefits of
610436 - linking computer files, reported on 001027 0907. ref SDS 12
610437 - GL3W "Understanding" largely rests on experience. Nobody at
610438 - SRI, IBM, McDonald Douglas, nor anywhere else has experience
610439 - using Knowledge Management to work intelligently, as set out in
610440 - POIMS, ref OF 1 1X6G, which includes connecting cause and
610441 - effect with links in computer files.
610443 - ..
610444 - Andy Grove explained challenge of change at Intel. Executives
610445 - "just don't get it" changing from selling memory to
610446 - microprocessor computer chips, reported on 980307 1614.
610447 - ref SDS 2 GW7H Andy and Gordon had executive authority at
610448 - Intel to change the people who could not be convinced about
610449 - urgency to improve, also, reported on 980307. ref SDS 2 1660
610452 - ..
610453 - 4. Sharepoint Presented for Collaboration to Improve Management
610454 - Engelbart SRI Lost Order for OHS/DKR to Microsoft Sharepoint
610456 - Pat and SRI supported OHS/DKR marketing efforts during the year
610457 - 2000 with many trips to Washington DC, to obtain government
610458 - grants for developing Doug's ideas, and indicated by the record
610459 - on 000419 1918. ref SDS 8 1540
610461 - [On 030625 Pat related that his boss has lost faith in KM,
610462 - and is hoping for better luck with AI, though without
610463 - explaining any difference between KM and AI. ref SDS 59
610464 - J864
610466 - ..
610467 - Pat advised today that on one of the trips he made with Doug to
610468 - Washington DC, during the year 2000 the National Institute for
610469 - Health (NIH) committed to invest $30M in the OHS/DKR project
610470 - starting the following year in 2001, and which would implement
610471 - Doug's ideas on Knowledge Management through tools that aid
610472 - collaboration, reviewed earlier on 991222. ref SDS 3 3696 This
610473 - aligns with the report on 001017. At that time, Doug and Pat
610474 - reported to the team meeting at SRI that the OHS/DKR project
610475 - would be funded by NIH. ref SDS 11 4877 A few months later,
610476 - Doug was honored at SRI for winning the national medal for
610477 - technology that cited his work in the 1960s developing the
610478 - mouse, and initial tools for the Internet, and related windows
610479 - capabilities, reported on 001220 1600. ref SDS 15 Y63L At that
610480 - time, Pat expected the OHS/DKR funding by NIH would soon be
610481 - received. ref SDS 15 BV3W
610483 - ..
610484 - Pat advised today, that funding was ultimately refused because
610485 - in early 2001, senior people at NIH saw Microsoft demonstrate
610486 - Sharepoint planned for release in 2002, and believed Sharepoint
610487 - would accomplish OHS/DKR objectives for sharing information to
610488 - improve collaboration in less time and at far cost than
610489 - developing OHS/DKR. This aligns with review of Microsoft
610490 - Sharepoint, reported on 020822 1404. ref SDS 31 H2YS
610492 - ..
610493 - Pat was still very disappointed today 2 years after NIH failure
610494 - to realize that Microsoft Sharepoint and similar tools, like
610495 - Lotus Notes, Groove, and Grove, do not accomplish goals for an
610496 - OHS/DKR implementing Doug's vision of "intelligence" support,
610497 - called CODIAC, reviewed o 991222, ref SDS 3 0786, which enables
610498 - "ABC" processes for continual improvement, also, reviewed on
610499 - 991222. ref SDS 3 5187
610501 - ..
610502 - Difficulty getting funding because of difficulty explaining to
610503 - NIH advantages of Doug's work aligns with similar problems at
610504 - SRI in the 1960s, cited at the event honoring Doug for winning
610505 - the National Medal for Technology, reported on 001220 1600,
610506 - ref SDS 15 UG7K
610509 - ..
610510 - Failure Creates Reluctant Warriors for Working Intelligently
610512 - As a result of this failed experience expending a lot of effort
610513 - in 2000 to promote KM through Doug's OHS/DKR, per above,
610514 - ref SDS 0 FS6H, Pat indicated today strong reluctance to make
610515 - significant efforts to support the combat project to strengthen
610516 - national defense by developing KM capability using SDS for Com
610517 - Metrics. Pat said he is willing to do some things, but not
610518 - another major effort.
610520 - ..
610521 - This aligns with Tom Munnecke's attitude about not doing
610522 - anything major to improve health care until the entire system
610523 - collapses, reported on 020911. ref SDS 32 KE5N Applying that
610524 - attitude to not doing anything major until the system of
610525 - management collapse has startling implications, since it
610526 - requires a major jolt, like a depression. Do we have to wait
610527 - for complete collapse, or is a major recession of the world
610528 - economy and collapse of notable firms like Enron, World Com, et
610529 - al, sufficient to get the ball rolling on improvement?
610531 - [On 030609 a lot of people have changed their attitude by
610532 - giving up because transformation from information to a
610533 - culture of knowledge takes time and meets with a lot of
610534 - disappointment. ref SDS 57 8B97
610536 - ..
610537 - [On 030624 Pat's attitude was supported by new evidence
610538 - that Aerospace company has a KM effort and wants to promote that
610539 - effort for the combat project rather than consider
610540 - improvements using SDS. ref SDS 58 FL50
610544 - ..
610545 - KM Marketing Requires Ongoing Effort Producing Work Product
610547 - SRI needs credibility to sell Knowledge Management by having a
610548 - "lab" that is performing the work to demonstrate that KM is
610549 - more than a theoretical exercise. This was explained to SRI in
610550 - a letter on 000407. ref SDS 7 0786
610552 - ..
610553 - Anyone proposing a new way of working must have the ability to
610554 - demonstrate better performance, otherwise people will fall back
610555 - on their experience with traditional methods, illustrated by
610556 - the resistance Pat relates that he and Doug encountered selling
610557 - OHS/DKR, per above. ref SDS 0 XD90

A00402 - Engelbart Dilemma Technology Evolved Away from Intellignece Support
A00403 - Case Study Pied Pipers of Fools Gold Lured Markets from OHS/DKR
A00405 - This record shows difficulties people have distinguishing
A00406 - advance from the siren song of pied pipers luring the innocent
A00407 - down the wrong path with the glitter of fools gold....
A00409 - 1. Executive at McDonald Douglas told Doug
A00410 - Engelbart in the 1970s that an IBM employee
A00411 - mentioned during a meeting with McDonald
A00412 - Douglas that linking in computer files for
A00413 - messaging, documents, and reports, like
A00414 - email, SDS records, etc., would not be
A00415 - useful technology, and so on the strength
A00416 - of chance conversation in a meeting, McDonald
A00417 - Douglas decided not to support a project
A00418 - to implement Doug's ideas for Knowledge
A00419 - Management learned through a decade of
A00420 - experience in the 1960s developing
A00421 - Augment NLS with a government
A00422 - grant at SRI....................... 001027, ref SDS 12 GL3W
A00424 - ..
A00425 - 2. Doug's boss at SRI in the 1960s had to
A00426 - fight very hard to maintain funding at
A00427 - SRI for Doug's work because nobody
A00428 - outside the project really understood
A00429 - the value proposition for using
A00430 - computers to create and
A00431 - manage information................. 001220 1600, ref SDS 15 UG7K
A00433 - ..
A00434 - 3. "Englebart Dilemma" PC industry changed
A00435 - technology environment eliminating foundation
A00436 - of computer operating system that supported
A00437 - Doug's tools; this prevented continuing
A00438 - progress to refine tools created in the
A00439 - 1960s and 70s; became dependent on people
A00440 - for funding and development who did not
A00441 - understand objectives and could not
A00442 - get experience in order to understand
A00443 - requirements because the tools
A00444 - did not exist...................... 001220 1600, ref SDS 15 NK6F
A00446 - ..
A00447 - 4. Morris at Intel reports that Microsoft
A00448 - has credibility offering capability
A00449 - that sounds similar to
A00450 - SDS................................ 010425, ref SDS 17 PJ4M
A00452 - ..
A00453 - 5. Jack Park at SRI reports email presents
A00454 - illusion of progress becasue hitting the
A00455 - "reply" button is so fast and easy that
A00456 - people are lured to respond on impulse
A00457 - attracted by the "fools gold" of saying
A00458 - whatever pops into the mind at the moment,
A00459 - and yielding impression that Doug's ideas
A00460 - for working intelligently by adding links
A00461 - to verify accuracy and expand
A00462 - context is unnecessary
A00463 - overkill........................... 010908 0938, ref SDS 21 YF5O
A00465 - ..
A00466 - 6. Morris at Intel reports SDS improves
A00467 - management better than other technologies
A00468 - because synergy between developing SDS
A00469 - code, and using SDS for daily work yields
A00470 - rising efficiencies with attention to
A00471 - ergonomics, including the keyboard
A00472 - that compounds productivity
A00473 - over a 20 year
A00474 - period............................. 010924, ref SDS 24 NK4J
A00476 - ..
A00477 - 7. Morris at Intel reports nobody uses
A00478 - software like SDS to lift the capacity
A00479 - to think, rememeber and
A00480 - communciate........................ 010924, ref SDS 24 XT5F
A00482 - ..

A00488 - 9. Murray Altheim reported people fail
A00489 - to use explicit links for
A00490 - linking content.................... 020820, ref SDS 28 UV6G
A00491 - because accuracy for communication
A00492 - takes too much effort without
A00493 - using SDS.......................... 020820, ref SDS 29 VN6H
A00494 - experts who promoted using "purple
A00495 - numbers" and other features of Knowledge
A00496 - Management all gave up adding granular

A00513 - 12. NIH refused $30 million grant to SRI
A00514 - for funding OHS/DKR development project
A00515 - because Microsoft planned to release
A00516 - Sharepoint, which NIH officials believed
A00517 - would accomplish OHS/DKR support for

A60810 - Pat had not reviewed the record on 030126 explaining IP issues
A60811 - per the letter sent this morning, see above. ref SDS 0 YK4M We
A60812 - took a few moments for Pat to open his email and click on the
A60813 - link to the record on 030126. After reading through the terms
A60814 - and conditions on IP, Pat advised that SRI most likely could
A60815 - not agree to protect Welch rights to SDS in exchange to
A60816 - granting SRI the right to use SDS for saving time and money and
A60817 - to learn KM and do research on KM for advancing the nation and

A80402 - Complaint SDS Not Installed Last Year
A80404 - Pat expressed disappointment that SDS was not installed on his
A80405 - computer in May of last year when we made plans for him to

B11308 - Today, Pat discussed installing SDS on his computer so he can
B11309 - start performing Communication Metrics as the "scribe" at SRI,
B11310 - similar to the way Gary working at Aerospace company, following up
B11311 - discussions on 010111 about using SDS at SRI. ref SDS 16 VT5N
B11312 - Today, Pat related benefits of helping the CEO, Curt Carlson,
B11313 - remember understandings at meetings and other communications.
B11314 - Pat seemed to indicate that Curt is often disappointed that
B11315 - understandings he recalls having been made clear on prior
B11316 - occassions, are forgotten and not acted upon by people who
B11317 - attend meetings. Pat indicated he can solve this problem by
B11318 - using SDS, based on experience showing SDS is helpful for
B11319 - capturing organizational memory and creating links that show
B11320 - alignment between the work people do and organizational
B11321 - objectives, requirements and commitments, including guidance
B11322 - and instructions received during meetings, as illustrated by

B11335 - Today, Pat recalled the eight (8) steps using SDS, listed in
B11336 - the record on 001219. ref SDS 14 4W4L This recollection shows
B11337 - some review was made from the draft endorsement where these
B11338 - steps are cited as part of the transformation from information
B11339 - to a culture of knowledge, set out in the record on 030417.
B11340 - ref SDS 39 FP4M Based on Pat's awareness of the steps using
B11341 - SDS for Com Metrics, we reviewed best practices initially means
B11342 - capturing a greater share of daily working information,
B11343 - described by Doug Engelbart in his 1972 paper setting goals for
B11344 - improving information technology, and which was reviewed on
B11345 - 000327, upon Doug's request to the OHS/DKR group meeting at SRI
B11346 - at that time. ref SDS 4 3971 This further means that every
B11347 - event does not require writing everything down, and every
B11348 - record does not require all eight (8) steps; rather, SDS
B11349 - provides an environment where creating records is faster and
B11350 - easier, and where adding "intelligence" by performing the eight
B11351 - (8) steps when time is available is faster and easier using
B11352 - SDS. Often time is not available to do all eight steps at
B11353 - once, and moreover a lot about what is important during events,
B11354 - is not evident at the time.

B11359 - Writing Showing Correlation between SDS and SRI Requirements
B11361 - Discussed idea of Pat developing a foundation of understanding
B11362 - for joining the SDS effort by submitting some writings that
B11363 - show common objectives with POIMS on Knowledge Management, as
B11364 - Gary at Aerospace company, and and Jerry Nord at CSG have both
B11365 - done. The endorsement of SDS was intended to provide an
B11366 - opportunity for Pat to perform this research. There is an
B11367 - implication from our meeting on 030527, which we did not
B11368 - discuss today, that Pat did not review supporting evidence
B11369 - linked in the draft endorsement in making his analysis on
B11370 - 030520. ref SDS 53 OF4F

B11374 - SDS 2 Tier Architecture Supports Privacy and Scalable Knowledge
B11375 - Internet Mistake SDS Records are Not Created on Web
B11376 - Erroneous Belief that SDS is Creature of Internet Because
B11377 - Everybody is Trying to Use Internet, But SDS Works Differntly
B11379 - Pat related today that Curt Carlson would not approve using SDS
B11380 - at SRI, reported on 010522, ref SDS 20 E688, because of worry
B11381 - caused by mistaken belief that SDS generates information only
B11382 - on the Internet, and this prevents control of confidential
B11383 - information.
B11385 - ..
B11386 - Looks like there has been a mistake at SRI for the past 2 years
B11387 - about the SDS design. We reviewed SDS 2-tier architecture that
B11388 - maintains local control for privacy, confidentiality, and
B11389 - secrecy, and uses the Internet for scalable knowledge, where
B11390 - useful and appropriate.
B11392 - [On 060211 Open Iris Java web-application SRI CALO project
B11393 - sponsored by DARPA, ref SDS 63 YY5K, seems conflicting with
B11394 - mistaken belief worrying on 030527 about confidentiality
B11395 - using SDS records that are not produced on the Internet.
B11396 - ref SDS 0 ZU3G
B11398 - ..
B11399 - Pat said that he, also, thought SDS work product was produced
B11400 - on the Internet, so it is understandable that Curt would have
B11401 - the same impression. Pat's understanding, however, appears
B11402 - conflicting with the demonstration of SDS he saw on 010527.
B11403 - ref SDS 19 KQ3G At that time, Pat saw SDS records created and
B11404 - edited entirely separate from the Internet.
B11406 - ..
B11407 - Curt's concern that SDS records are innately part of the
B11408 - Internt likely flows from the fact that on 010122 Curt received
B11409 - a letter with links on the Internet to an agenda, which in turn
B11410 - contained links to background to prepare for a meeting with Pat
B11411 - and I that day. The agenda provided links to relevant parts of
B11412 - prior meetings at SRI on the OHS/DKR effort. This experience
B11413 - using SDS records on the Internet, together with efforts by
B11414 - Doug, Pat and others on the OHS/DKR effort, aimed at doing
B11415 - knowledge management on the Internet, together with knowing
B11416 - that such technology is a common objective throughout industry,
B11417 - government and research circles, supports an inference that SDS
B11418 - works the same way.
B11420 - ..
B11421 - We reviewed briefly SDS advanced design that supports the
B11422 - binary structure of human cognition where conscious span of
B11423 - attention is expanded by connections into the full record
B11424 - managed by subconscious processing. This design necessarily
B11425 - requires facile support for Internet activity, while being a
B11426 - separate and more powerful resource for generating intelligence
B11427 - from daily working information, as called out in POIMS.
B11428 - ref OF 2 SV5N
B11430 - [On 030528 example of strong feelings that arise from loss
B11431 - of control even more than worry about the substance or what
B11432 - is disclosed. ref SDS 56 A67K

B11435 - Pat said he intends to review POIMS.

B11439 - KM Full Time Job Front-end Investment to Transform Culture
B11441 - Pat asked about income using SDS? He said something about
B11442 - using SDS in a spreadsheet of some kind, which I did not
B11443 - follow, other than to gather that Pat is aware that generating
B11444 - revenue is important for advancing the effort on SDS, and that
B11445 - Pat is wondering how to finance the effort. Previously, on
B11446 - 000406 Pat asked about a "day job" that sustain SDS development
B11447 - because other people work part time to develop Knowledge
B11448 - Management capabilities, and earn a living by using
B11449 - conventional skills in engineering, medicine, government,
B11450 - education, the military, agriculture, business, etc.
B11451 - ref SDS 6 6783 Today, we recalled discussing at that time on
B11452 - 000406, that experience shows civilization cannot be advanced
B11453 - with part-time effort. Transformation from information to a
B11454 - culture of knowledge is a full-time job that consumes about 36
B11455 - hours per day, because few people are available to help. Last
B11456 - year during our meeting on 020729 we noted slow progress on KM
B11457 - using part-time open source methods. ref SDS 27 T43A
B11459 - ..
B11460 - This record suggests that continued progress requires full-time
B11461 - work on KM. One approach is to fund a KM lab, as proposed in
B11462 - the draft endorsement. ref OF 11 ZT6M
