180703 - Gary reports problem linking to another user's SDS record.  Need some
180704 - details to trouble shoot the problem, since normally the procedure
180705 - that Gary seems to report having used that didn't work, should work,
180706 - ref SDS 0 6S9X, and the method of starting from the Schedule, which
180707 - evidently solved the problem, is not clear how it relates to the
180708 - evident objective. ref SDS 0 JF8J  Gary offers helpful analysis
180709 - showing that developing, maintaining and applying organic subject
180710 - structure, ref SDS 0 7K5G for contact management to organize the
180711 - record by is a complex task. ref SDS 0 7L59  SDS uses the Subject
180712 - Index and Communication Metrics practices require a new professional
180713 - role with training, skills and time dedicated for tending the garden
180714 - of knowledge. ref SDS 0 7L73  Gary offers new ideas for improving the
180715 - existing system. ref SDS 0 0079  New ideas are further offered for

180717 - tip of the day explains SDS supports navigation to different levels
180718 - within the SI by clicking between organic structures in the Control
180719 - Field. ref SDS 0 WL38  A search feature is suggested to help find
180720 - subjects; some of this is currently supported. ref SDS 0 WL3R  Gary
180721 - explores other technologies for managing context, which will be
180722 - helpful for making improvements. ref SDS 0 5T8S  We need to develop
180723 - tool support for avoiding errors in the narrative, both spelling and
180724 - omitting words, using the wrong word, etc. ref SDS 0 PU8Q  Another tip

181101 - Linking to Other Users Records Occurs in SDS Record
181102 -
181103 - Gary's record on 030530 explains procedures for creating a link to a
181104 - record created by another user, ref SDS 40 0001, and says...
181105 -
181106 -     I wanted to link to one of Rod's records, so I tried to create a
181107 -     Diary to access it from the current Diary record. ref SDS 40 0001
181109 -  ..
181110 - This explanation is a little unclear.  Linking to another user's
181111 - records generally occurs in two ways.
181112 -
181113 -             [On 030601 Gary clarifies the problem is that the code to
181114 -             construct a diary summary is broke. ref SDS 43 NL7H
181115 -
181116 -       a.  While working in a record on a particular task, the mind
181117 -           recognizes a potential association with something in a
181118 -           record of another user.  There can be a flash of memory that
181119 -           a related subject was discussed that is relevant, or there
181120 -           can be a general sense that such a record exists, and the
181121 -           User does a subject report to find the record.
181123 -            ..
181124 -       b.  The user may be looking through another user's records and
181125 -           recognize something that is relevant and so decide to create
181126 -           a link.  This is what I did today, reviewing Gary's record.
181128 -            ..
181129 -           This scenario "b" also sounds like what Gary is describing,
181130 -           but not sure.
181132 -            ..
181133 -           In this case, after reviewing Gary's record I wanted to
181134 -           submit training comments, and so rather than send an email,
181135 -           another SDS record was located where instructions were
181136 -           issued on using SDS, and it was used to create a new SDS
181137 -           record for reviewing and commenting on Gary's record,
181138 -           because that record has a subject structure that is similar
181139 -           to what is needed for doing the current record.  Subject
181140 -           management takes the most time, so using a prior related
181141 -           record saved time, rather than starting from a blank record.
181142 -           After creating a new SDS record for doing this task, which
181143 -           took maybe 20 - 60 seconds to find a good template record,
181144 -           because there are quite a few records over the past few
181145 -           weeks on training and learning, I did the following to
181146 -           create the links shown in this record, which are similar to
181147 -           what Gary seems to be indicating, above, ref SDS 0 0001,
181148 -           that he wanted to accomplish....
181150 -                ..
181151 -           1)  I then updated the subjects for the Control Field and
181152 -               added new subjects in the SI on this particular subject,
181153 -               which is generally described as...
181154 -
181155 -                          Linking to another user's records.
181157 -                ..
181158 -           2)  The User and Billing field are held constant in Control
181159 -               Fields when an existing record is used to create a new
181160 -               record.  So, after assigning subjects, the only other
181161 -               task for the Control Field is to enter a function.  This
181162 -               was assigned as a Marketing op to help users, i.e.,
181163 -               training and correcting records.
181165 -                ..
181166 -           3)  After setting up Control Fields, created sentence shown
181167 -               above. ref SDS 0 0001  With the cursor at the end of the
181168 -               sentence, opened the menu.....
181169 -
181170 -                   File   Edit   Contacts    Diary   Subjects...
181172 -                ..
181173 -           4)  Moved the cursor to Diary, and entered....
181174 -
181175 -                   File   Edit   Contacts    5 ^gljdy█
181177 -                ..
181178 -           5)  With the cursor at the end of "gljdy," which is Gary's
181179 -               user ID, pressed Enter.
181181 -                ..
181182 -           6)  This produced a list of Gary's records for the past 5
181183 -               days.
181185 -                ..
181186 -           7)  Moved the cursor to the target record and opened it by
181187 -               pressing Enter.  The cursor always starts on the default
181188 -               anchor at the top of the narrative, so merely pressed
181189 -               Enter again.  This created the link shown above.  Once
181190 -               the decision is made to create a link, the entire
181191 -               exercise takes 3 - 5 seconds to fumble with the keys in
181192 -               steps 1 - 7.

181196 - Gary continues in his record on 030530...

181198 -     I always got my diary for that day. ref SDS 40 JF8J
181200 -  ..
181201 - This sounds like a problem, but not sure why.  Need more details on
181202 - what Gary actually did.

181205 - Gary continues in his record on 030530...
181206 -
181207 -     On a hunch, I tried it from the schedule, and it worked as
181208 -     expected. ref SDS 40 JF87
181210 -  ..
181211 - What was "it" tried from the Schedule?
181213 -      ..
181214 -     Conclusion: Diary searches are different from the schedule than
181215 -     they are from an SDS record. ref SDS 40 JF90
181217 -      ..
181218 -     Unless there is some stron motivation that I don't grasp, this is
181219 -     an error. ref SDS 40 JF94
181221 -  ..
181222 - Gary is correct, there is an error in the above procedure.  Diary
181223 - searches from the Schedule should be the same as from an SDS record,
181224 - per the explanation above. ref SDS 0 L43K
181225 -
181226 -             [On 030601 Gary clarifies the problem is that the code to
181227 -             construct a diary summary is broke. ref SDS 43 NL7H

521107 - Another record Gary created, also, on 030530 says in part...
521108 -
521109 -    1.  Most Diary records are created from an existing record.  This
521110 -        preserves the thread that unites a chronology, and carries
521111 -        forward both referenced SDS records and the primary set of
521112 -        Subjects.
521114 -         ..
521115 -        While some of the subjects will likely apply to the new record, some
521116 -        of the more detailed ones won't.
521118 -         ..
521119 -        It seems that, in general, the subjects in the new record will
521120 -        need editing.
521122 -  ..
521123 - This analysis is correct, per example above, ref SDS 0 6S44, on
521124 - implementing step 2 of performing Com Metrics set out in the record on
521125 - 001219. ref SDS 10 QZ4K
521127 -  ..
521128 - Gary continues in his record on 030530...
521129 -
521130 -        As the list of subjects entries grows, it becomes difficult to
521131 -        match control lines to their text descriptions, particularly if
521132 -        you have to page to see all of both lists. Knowing which
521133 -        control line to delete can be tricky. ref SDS 41 Q39N
521135 -  ..
521136 - Context Management using organic structure in record segments was
521137 - reviewed on 030111. ref SDS 21 IH4F
521138 -
521139 -      [On 030605 reviewed requirements for flexible structure to manage
521140 -      files. ref SDS 44 0001
521142 -  ..
521143 - Generally, context management is "tricky" because assigning subjects
521144 - is complex, explained in POIMS, ref OF 2 525M and reported on 000221,
521145 - ref SDS 6 7455, and necessary in order expand span of attention and
521146 - identify multiple paths for finding relevant history, and assemble
521147 - multiple views to improve understanding for the Com Manager, which, in
521148 - turn, empowers others to understand what happened in meetings, as
521149 - reported by Dave Held at Aerospace company on 030527. ref SDS 39 0001  This is
521150 - critical to the 3-layer architecture reviewed on 020820, ref SDS 17
521151 - 0001, that bridges the gap between the two (2) worlds of IT and a
521152 - culture of knowledge, discussed on 030512, ref SDS 28 RX5O, and posed
521153 - by Gary in a letter on 030410. ref SDS 24 LC4L
521155 -  ..
521156 - Not sure what "match control lines to their text descriptions..."
521157 - means?  Need to observe Gary's work to grasp what is occurring that
521158 - yielded the explanation "...if you have to page to see all of both
521159 - lists."  What two lists are being observed?

521162 -     ..
521163 -    Professional Role Required to Tend Garden of Knowledge
521164 -    Context Management Needs Professional Role for Organic Structure
521165 -
521166 -    Tending the garden of knowledge to strengthen understanding implies
521167 -    a new professional role explained in POIMS, ref OF 3 HO4H and
521168 -    ref OF 5 1110, and called out by KM experts. (see Michael Zack
521169 -    reviewed on 010121. ref SDS 11 Q47K)
521170 -
521172 -  ..
521173 - Gary continues in his record on 030530...
521175 -         ..
521176 -        Must edit subjects to get good searches
521177 -
521178 -        The primary reason to care about editing subject lists is the
521179 -        central function of subject searches in SDS. If there are more
521180 -        reference records than needed in a record, all that happens is
521181 -        that we get long lists. If the subject listings are wrong, we
521182 -        get false hits on subject searches and fail to find what we
521183 -        want quickly and easily. ref SDS 41 0079
521185 -  ..
521186 - Good analysis.  We don't want to overlook relevant information, and we
521187 - don't want to be overwhelmed by irrelevances.
521189 -  ..
521190 - Recently on 030518 mark and return was improved to making editing
521191 - Control Fields faster and easier. ref SDS 31 0001
521192 -
521194 -     ..
521195 -    Improve Subject Index with New Format and Editing Approach
521196 -
521197 -    Gary continues with an "approach" to editing Control Fields that
521198 -    says in part....
521199 -
521200 -           Keep the control line and the text description in pairs.
521201 -           This would allow deleting both lines at once. It would
521202 -           complicate reading them a bit because of the interleaved
521203 -           formats. It would help with using control lines for document
521204 -           references and such. Sorting would be a bit more difficult,
521205 -           but would entail only joining lines before the sort and
521206 -           breaking them afterwards.  It also eliminates the need for
521207 -           conforming subjects, which would allow the use of any
521208 -           matching description in a record. ref SDS 41 VE3G
521210 -     ..
521211 -    This is the kind of analysis needed for improving use of organic
521212 -    structure in the SDS subject index, i.e., someone is thinking about
521213 -    the matter.
521215 -     ..
521216 -    Need clarification of the first sentence....
521217 -
521218 -           Keep the control line and the text description in pairs.
521219 -
521220 -    ...cannot envision what Gary has in mind. ref SDS 0 4D8G
521222 -     ..
521223 -    Possibly Gary could layout the new format showing how it compares
521224 -    to the existing approach. ref SDS 41 WL39

791317 -    interim basis, this feature could be extended to support the same

791321 -    While this is not a complete solution, experience has shown that
791322 -    typically navigating within the organic structure takes seconds
791323 -    using this method.  Typically, decisions about where to access the
791324 -    SI depends on the context of the narrative being considered, and
791325 -    this occurs within the record.

AA0908 -    manipulable, structure; and, he would like to see full text search
AA0909 -    supported in the SI. ref SDS 41 LX9J  Earlier on 020618 Gary
AA0910 -    reviewed the importance of organizing the record, and at that time
AA0911 -    considered ontology, topic maps and refactoring. ref SDS 16 2Q4H
AA0912 -    On 030208 Gary developed the common use case and related scenarios
AA0913 -    for using organic structure to manage the evolving context of daily
AA0914 -    work. ref SDS 23 0001
AA0916 -     ..
AA0917 -    Based on this background, Gary seems to recognize that SDS is a
AA0918 -    powerful, unique method for organizing and integrating personal and
AA0919 -    organizational memory that enables effective intelligence support,
AA0920 -    as set out in POIMS. ref OF 2 0367  On 021016 Gary notes that
AA0921 -    context management is essential for SDS. ref SDS 18 SYRQ  This was
AA0922 -    re-stated on 021120. ref SDS 19 MZ6H  Gary's analysis aligns with
AA0923 -    Doug Engelbart's report on 001027 finding that SDS offers the best
AA0924 -    support for knowledge management Doug has seen. ref SDS 9 KC5I
AA0925 -    Later on 020128 Doug explained that SDS support for organic
AA0926 -    structure to make finding information fast and easy is a new
AA0927 -    concept that was not part of his work at SRI on developing Augment
AA0928 -    NLS. ref SDS 15 YS9N
AA0929 -
AA0930 -         [On 030709 Gary reported further experience that disclosed the
AA0931 -         SDS Subject Index system is unique; there are numerous
AA0932 -         indexing schemes used in other applications, but nothing like
AA0933 -         the Subject Index in SDS. ref SDS 45 YK8L
AA0935 -          ..
AA0936 -         [On 030710 Gary considers making the Subject Index a separate
AA0937 -         program, ref SDS 46 0124, and evaluates improving Microsoft
AA0938 -         software to support SDS capabilities. ref SDS 46 JN5N
AA0940 -          ..
AA0941 -         [On 030812 Gary reviews the value added that SDS provides that
AA0942 -         interests customers, ref SDS 47 JS48, and cites the Subject
AA0943 -         Index again as an essential capability that makes SDS
AA0944 -         effective. ref SDS 47 JT41
AA0946 -          ..
AA0947 -         [On 030929 Gary says the Subject Index is a sophisticated
AA0948 -         method for managing context that takes time like a librarian
AA0949 -         organizes books and magazines so customers can find a
AA0950 -         publication quickly by looking for a subject. ref SDS 48 0429
AA0952 -     ..
AA0953 -    Gary contrasts the SDS design of flexible structure using organic
AA0954 -    subjects, discussed on 890523, ref SDS 2 P13O, with graphical
AA0955 -    methods, like topic and dialog maps, ref SDS 41 2550, which Eric
AA0956 -    Armstrong reviewed on 010914, ref SDS 12 UU8N, and citing prior
AA0957 -    analysis. ref SDS 12 SN78
AA0959 -     ..
AA0960 -    Gary also notes difficulties trying to formulate a common and
AA0961 -    universal "ontology," ref SDS 41 759H, which Jack Park proposed on
AA0962 -    000623, ref SDS 7 SH5J, for a 3-layer architecture to serve as an
AA0963 -    interlingua to all possible users, ref SDS 7 1998  At that time
AA0964 -    Jack proposed supplementing the universal onotlogy with an "engine"
AA0965 -    to automatically create topic maps. ref SDS 7 2915
AA0967 -     ..
AA0968 -    Earlier this year on 030116 Gary noticed that context management is
AA0969 -    a complex, difficult task. ref SDS 22 PU3I  More recently, on
AA0970 -    030521 Gary's experience working with the Subject Index supports
AA0971 -    the need for a professional role, similar to an accountant or a
AA0972 -    librarian to support the process of segmenting the record for
AA0973 -    developing "intelligence" on the job every day. ref SDS 36 WV6H
AA0975 -     ..
AA0976 -    As a result, yesterday, on 030530 Gary plans to investigate how
AA0977 -    people can be more effective using an organic subject structure
AA0978 -    that represents the unique life experience of someone else for
AA0979 -    finding information of interest in the moment.  Gary further notes
AA0980 -    that bridging the gap between empowering people to construct
AA0981 -    representations of their unique life experience, and universal
AA0982 -    commonality so that everyone can find any information they feel is
AA0983 -    important to their life based on the context of another life
AA0984 -    presents a knowledge management dilemma. ref SDS 41 TK3K
AA0986 -     ..
AA0987 -    SDS addresses this dilemma by providing multiple tools for finding
AA0988 -    information based on context.
AA0989 -
AA0990 -        1.  The subject index provides a comprehensive method for
AA0991 -            organizing information, as Gary notes.
AA0993 -             ..
AA0994 -            Currently, there are four (4) ways to search the SI....
AA0995 -
AA0996 -            a.  Open the index and scroll through the subjects; many
AA0997 -                indexes are organized with a date component that
AA0998 -                provides orientation for finding a particular subject.
AA0999 -
AA1000 -            b.  Sort the accounts for a particular subject and scroll
AA1001 -                through the list alphabetically.
AA1003 -                 ..
AA1004 -            c.  F1 F4 within an index opens the standard search and
AA1005 -                find screen where a zone and string can be entered.
AA1007 -                 ..
AA1008 -                Use Ctrl F6 to switch back to the SI and then press
AA1009 -                Shift F4 to execute the search.  This can be done
AA1010 -                multiple times to find all instances of the search
AA1011 -                string.
AA1013 -             ..
AA1014 -        2.  SDS records are organized chronologically so people can
AA1015 -            open a list of records in a diary summary and look for
AA1016 -            records with descriptions that appear relevant to current
AA1017 -            needs.
AA1019 -             ..
AA1020 -        3.  SDS records can be searched for a keyword in the
AA1021 -            description field by specifying a diary summary.
AA1023 -             ..
AA1024 -        4.  Documents and other files can be specified to search SDS
AA1025 -            records.
AA1027 -             ..
AA1028 -        5.  Document log search can be used to locate records.
AA1030 -             ..
AA1031 -        6.  Contacts can be specified to search for SDS records where
AA1032 -            particular people and organizations are reported.
AA1034 -             ..
AA1035 -        7.  Links to other records enable people to set up a subject in
AA1036 -            their own records for finding information in records
AA1037 -            created by other people, illustrated by Gary's record
AA1038 -            yesterday that discusses his analysis of the SDS Subject
AA1039 -            Index. ref SDS 41 XJ5G
AA1041 -             ..
AA1042 -        8.  Keyword Locator in the Editor.
AA1043 -
AA1044 -            Open the Editor and open the menu, and in Tools, select
AA1045 -            the first choice for Keyword Locator.
AA1047 -             ..
AA1048 -            In Keyword Locator the cursor is located where a
AA1049 -            specification can be entered.  To search the Subject Index
AA1050 -            for Gary enter...
AA1052 -                      ..
AA1053 -                     h: sd 06 gljdy
AA1055 -             ..
AA1056 -            Press the space bar twice to enter an argument or string
AA1057 -            for locating something in the SI, per this example...
AA1059 -             ..
AA1060 -            h: sd 06 gljdy  multiple views
AA1062 -             ..
AA1063 -            Press Enter.
AA1065 -             ..
AA1066 -            This opens a file where all lines in the SI with this
AA1067 -            string are listed with some context.  The cursor can be
AA1068 -            moved to a specific line in the listing, and pressing Enter
AA1069 -            opens the SI file at the location where the string is
AA1070 -            located.
