391069 - Foundation of Thermodynamical Behavior..." describes knowledge
391070 - as a mathematical proposition of predictability, ref SDS 44
391071 - K134, and extends view that quantum mechanics reduce to
391072 - classical mechanics at the macro level with mathematical proof
391073 - that locality, uncertainty, the 2nd law, and gravity all derive

391087 - presented in lecture #1, reviewed on 040312. ref SDS 34 YH4G Linear
391088 - thinking arises from the irreversibility of time, causing entropy to

391098 - The agenda today for a Knowledge Management seminar in New York, per
391099 - above, ref SDS 0 XN5M, advocating solely for a task of conversation,
391100 - ref SDS 0 LZ6O, incorrectly rejects complementarity to verify context
391101 - and accuracy, reviewed on 040312. ref SDS 36 X66I Information from
391102 - conversation requires intelligence support that manages knowledge of
391103 - chronology, context, and connection, essential to make sense of
391104 - complex objectives, requirements and commitments, explained in POIMS.
391105 - ref OF 6 8555 "Meaning" is routinely constructed with connections
391106 - that associate one thing people know with another, noted by Campbell
391107 - reviewed on 900303. ref SDS 1 4456 On 960321 review of Laundauer's
391108 - paper on LSA defines "meaning" based on association. ref SDS 10 2882
391109 - Professor Laundauer, also, explains "context" sets boundaries of
391110 - "meaning," shown in the record on 960518. ref SDS 11 3374 However,
391111 - "meaning drift" dissipates the power of knowledge that makes complex
391112 - systems productive, when connections relating cause and effect fail,
391113 - see again 960518, ref SDS 11 3734, see also locality and the 2nd law
391114 - of thermodynamics, reviewed on 040312. ref SDS 34 YH4G Rising entropy
391115 - transforms complexity from an asset leveraging intelligence into a
391116 - crushing liability of constant bumbling, panic, conflict, crisis,
391117 - chaos, and calamity, reviewed on 040312. ref SDS 35 1D6I NWO presents
391118 - this balance of opportunity and risk in complexity theory. ref OF 13
391119 - JU8O
391121 - ..
391122 - The alphabet improves sole reliance on human memory and orality for
391123 - connecting cause and effect by several orders of magnitude, reported
391124 - on 991108. ref SDS 18 4505 Havelock says the alphabet was an
391125 - explosive technology that lifted civilization. ref SDS 18 5628 On
391126 - 010622 Doug Lenant says that alphabet technology makes people
391127 - superhuman. ref SDS 23 N668
391129 - ..
391130 - John's proposal today rejecting Newtonian mechanics using technology
391131 - that leverages the power of human thinking, ingenuity, and creativity
391132 - for controlling the future, based on the predictive power of knowledge
391133 - under the locality principle, does not explain the replacement nor how
391134 - it will yield improvement. ref SDS 0 K47Q
391136 - ..
391137 - John's comment that managerial control, dominance, and technocracy are
391138 - obsolete, ref SDS 0 K47Q, is not supported by the record. Managers
391139 - routinely use cars, trains, planes, telephones, pens, pencils, paper,
391140 - books, computers, chairs and other instruments of technocracy.
391141 - Command and control of the work is essential for focusing great minds,
391142 - willing hands, and capital equipment into a productive force under the
391143 - second law of thermodynamics. (see POIMS, ref OF 7 1113) Without
391144 - command of the record nobody can find anything in time to be
391145 - effective, as reported by Bill Gates on 021108. ref SDS 32 EF5I
391146 - Without energy from experienced management to control connections of
391147 - cause and effect, work devolves into random loss of energy, paralyzing
391148 - productivity leading to loss of lives and earnings, and to conflict,
391149 - crisis, and constant calamity, instead of continual learning, shown by
391150 - events on 010911 from failure to allocate resources for good
391151 - management. ref SDS 24 0001 See, as well, explosion of Columbia Space
391152 - Shuttle because NASA ignored requirements for good management,
391153 - reported on 030826. ref SDS 33 8K4G Enron's collapse into bankruptcy
391154 - from failure to use good management connecting daily work with
391155 - objectives, requirements, and commitments, reported on 020204.
391156 - ref SDS 27 4N6F These anecdotes reflect a broader study on 020504
391157 - showing that when management fails to use technology for command and
391158 - control to dominate the work, ref SDS 28 NS6F, then authority becomes
391159 - a crushing weight of responsibilty that drives management toward
391160 - ignorance, fear, denial to cover up failure to meet expectations of
391161 - creditors, investors, and pensioners all counting on income from a
391162 - productive enterprise.
391164 - ..
391165 - John's press release eventually gets around to "showing the goods" --
391166 - what he proposes to replace good management.
391168 - ..
391169 - "Authentic-conversation" proposed by the seminar, ref SDS 0 LZ6O, can
391170 - be complemented with command and control of the work using linear,
391171 - mechanistic literacy, explained in POIMS, ref OF 7 3742, and called
391172 - out in professional standards for clear, concise, complete
391173 - communication that makes management effective. Complementarity is
391174 - accomplished with Knowledge Management measurement and performance
391175 - processes listed in the record on 011102, reviewing Larry Prusak's
391176 - article explaining the original purpose of Knowledge Management.
391177 - ref SDS 26 XN9H
391179 - ..
391180 - Good management requires "continual learning," ref SDS 9 2846, through
391181 - accurate understanding from authenticating conversation with
391182 - traceability to original sources, reviewed on 950721. ref SDS 9 1740
391183 - John's rejection of accuracy in favor of immediacy and expediency of
391184 - conversation that seems fast and easy, as related in POIMS, repeats,
391185 - and incorrectly presents as "new" long disproven, and ancient
391186 - arguments in 400 BC framed by Plato. The Phaedrus dialog argued
391187 - against linear, mechanistic literacy in favor of reliance on orality
391188 - for accurate memory, reported on 991209. ref SDS 19 0877
391190 - [On 050325 "continual learning" is associated with "Knowledge

391196 - discussed the role of leadership to overcome ignorance, fear and
391197 - denial that resist converting information into knowledge for saving
391198 - lives, time and money. ref SDS 12 4011 Leadership can empower folks
391199 - to rely on the record, rather than conversation in order to avoid
391200 - accountability. ref SDS 12 PY40
391202 - ..
391203 - "Knowledge Leadership" describing John's new seminar is another new
391204 - buz word, along with "authentic conversation, discussed below,

391207 - Management comments on consultants promulgating new buz words for
391208 - marketing hype. ref SDS 25 SZ7O
391210 - [On 050325 "knowledge leadership" is associated by one pundit with
391211 - Senge's phrase of "organizational learning," and further with an
391212 - even newer buz word, "presencing." ref SDS 43 GP4O
391214 - ..
391215 - Since we are barely 4 years into the 21st century, seems like jumping
391216 - the gun to make judgements about the entire 20th century. We need
391217 - some time in order to draw useful distinctions between 20th and 21st
391218 - century ideas, methods and tools?
391220 - ..
391221 - "Linear thinking" rejected in John's press release, ref SDS 0 K47Q, is
391222 - driven by the irreversability of time that drives the clock of human
391223 - biology from life to death, per above, ref SDS 0 3T9F, and so deserves
391224 - attention for getting things done before time runs out, noted by Jim
391225 - Pinker in his book, "How the Mind Works," reviewed on 990329.
391226 - ref SDS 14 FF70
391228 - ..
391229 - Chronology, context, and connection described in POIMS technology,
391230 - ref OF 6 1105, are the core of intelligence support using mechanized
391231 - linear thinking for understanding cause and effect, and maintaining
391232 - alignment for accuracy which otherwise fails due to meaning drift,
391233 - also, explained in POIMS. ref OF 4 049O
391235 - ..
391236 - Disparaging "good management" practice defined in published standards,
391237 - e.g., PMBOK, ISO, reviewed on 950721, ref SDS 9 1740, and defined in
391238 - POIMS, ref OF 3 1X6G, in order to sell customers on attending a
391239 - seminar to "improve" management by giving up on accuracy understanding
391240 - cause and effect demonstrates how severely people have lost their way
391241 - and given up, reported initially by Peter Drucker on 931130.
391242 - ref SDS 4 3851
391244 - ..
391245 - Rejecting linear, mechanical thinking and management methods of
391246 - command and control aided by technology reflects rejection of the
391247 - foundation of civilization using alphabet technology reviewed on
391248 - 991108. ref SDS 18 YX4M Further supports study on 020504 showing
391249 - people simply ignore and refuse to perform requirements for good
391250 - management to document accuracy of communications. ref SDS 28 NS6F
391251 - Giving up on alignment, accuracy, communication, and requirements for
391252 - good management reflects frustrations and despair because these have
391253 - proven beyond reach using popular tools people like. On 030826 Sean
391254 - O'Keefe testified before Congress that continual disasters at NASA
391255 - occur because requirements for good management are applied as
391256 - suggestions, so that people do what feels good rather what is
391257 - required. ref SDS 33 8K4G The press release today seems to reflect
391258 - Sean's testimony. ref SDS 0 K46M

490402 - Reengineer Mistakes in 1990s Caused By Abandoning Newtonian Thinking
490403 - 19th-century Newtonian Thinking Unsuitable for 21st-century Leadership
490405 - John's invitation letter continues...
490407 - b. Much of the orthodoxy of 19th-century Newtonian thinking is
490408 - unsuitable for 21st-century knowledge leadership. A recent
490409 - example of this organizational pathology is the
490410 - reengineering fiasco of the 90s. This mechanistic,
490411 - cost-reduction management fad destroyed capabilities,
490412 - competencies, trust and value. Even today some managers
490413 - still use machine metaphors to describe their knowledge
490414 - leadership efforts! ref DRT 1 C57H

490432 - 1727) with the 19th century, as stated in John's press release.
490433 - Newton developed his famous "thinking" in the 17th not the 19th
490434 - century. ref OF 14 497F Of courses "sources," "chronology," and

AZ0401 - ..
AZ0402 - Letter Recommends Positive Agenda for Knowledge Management
AZ0403 - Object to Giving Up on Advancing from Information to Knowledge
AZ0405 - Submitted ref DIT 1 0001 a letter to John, responding to the notice of
AZ0406 - a seminar, ref DRT 1 0001, and as reviewed above, ref SDS 0 RF6O, and
AZ0407 - further saying to John...
AZ0409 - 1. Glad to hear in your notice today, shown below, ref SDS 0 K465,
AZ0410 - that you will be gathering top minds in New York city later
AZ0411 - this month to discuss knowledge management. ref SDS 0 RF6O
AZ0412 - These events take a lot of work, and we all applaud your
AZ0413 - stellar efforts. At the same time, I object to the negative
AZ0414 - tone of the announcement that spends a lot of time saying what
AZ0415 - will not be presented, and prescious little in the way of
AZ0416 - saying what will be presented. ref DIT 1 0001
AZ0418 - ..
AZ0419 - I further object to the opprobrium directed toward
AZ0420 - "mechanistic" solutions for implementing hard won knowledge
AZ0421 - from experience over the past two (2) millennia, ref SDS 0
AZ0422 - K47Q, that guides the practice of management to empower people
AZ0423 - with command and control of the work, as explained in POIMS.
AZ0424 - ref OF 7 1113
AZ0426 - [On 040621 John responds explaining that rigid analytic,
AZ0427 - mechanistic thinking is not suited for knowledge-based
AZ0428 - economies; proposes 1 dimensional approach using only
AZ0429 - conversation without textual approach to verify accuracy.
AZ0430 - ref SDS 39 2U4U
AZ0432 - ..
AZ0433 - [On 040622 John's letter seems to recognize the support
AZ0434 - role for technology in Knowledge Management verifying
AZ0435 - accuracy of communication by authenticating
AZ0436 - conversation. ref SDS 40 MR8H
AZ0438 - ..
AZ0439 - 2. It was disappointing when your group met on 991217 with
AZ0440 - professionals from around the world saying they did not
AZ0441 - understand the meaning of "knowledge," ref DIT 1 2U7J, and
AZ0442 - hoped to find an answer by attending your KM event. ref SDS 20
AZ0443 - 9030
AZ0445 - ..
AZ0446 - 3. It was again, sad to hear three (3) years later in your letter
AZ0447 - on 020608 that knowledge management remains a mystery, i.e., a
AZ0448 - failure, to prominent thought leaders, ref DIT 1 FV8I, which is
AZ0449 - simply glossed over by substituting "knowledge" for
AZ0450 - "information" in professional papers, events and product
AZ0451 - specifications. ref SDS 29 JA4L
Dimming the Lights Experts Give Up on Enlightenment Reject the Power

BS0402 - Dumbing Down Knowledge Management with Conversation Fast Easy Solution
BS0403 - Dimming Lights Experts Give Up on Enlightenment Power of Knowledge
BS0404 - Experts Give Up on Enlightenment Dimming Lights Knowledge Management
BS0406 - Letter to Colabria on KM event continues...
BS0408 - 4. Now, two (2) years hence, rather than educate to enlighten,
BS0409 - professional events are still dimming the lights. The current
BS0410 - fashion seems to be following the path of SAT for college
BS0411 - entrance by dumbing down the meaning of "knowledge,"
BS0412 - ref DIT 1 QX9H, evident from the complete loss of direction in
BS0413 - the announcement, shown below, ref SDS 0 XN5M, for a
BS0414 - professional event in New York city on knowlege management.
BS0415 - Peter Drucker notes, from decades of experience, that people
BS0416 - have given up on improving communication, because the task is
BS0417 - complex, reviewed on 931130. ref SDS 4 3851
BS0419 - [On 040621 seminar marketing appeal to "learn from the
BS0420 - future" dumbs down Knowledge Management; over zealous
BS0421 - salesmanship defies logic, locality principle,
BS0422 - irreversability of time. ref SDS 39 7X5F
BS0424 - ..
BS0425 - [On 040621 case study of Knowledge Management rhetoric
BS0426 - shows experts and professionals have given up on improving
BS0427 - communication with synergy from complementarity of a
BS0428 - multi-disciplinary approach, and instead offer a single
BS0429 - solution of conversation. ref SDS 39 W63K
BS0431 - ..
BS0432 - [On 090623 1341 report that 15 years after first conference
BS0433 - on Knowledge Management "experts" have not devloped a firm
BS0434 - basis for transformation from information to a culture of
BS0435 - knowledge, and essentially have given up hope. ref SDS 45
BS0436 - UH8P
BS0438 - ..
BS0439 - 5. For retreat to now be presented and advocated as a "new
BS0440 - solution" in the greatest city on earth, signals that the
BS0441 - entire culture has lost its way, sailing without rudder nor
BS0442 - compass. ref DIT 1 7E4K
BS0444 - ..
BS0445 - 6. Perhaps this explains how a few guys with box cutters defeated
BS0446 - the entire "intelligence" apparatus of a great power to bring
BS0447 - down the World Trade Center, ref DIT 1 PD4L, and strike at the
BS0448 - heart of western defense in Washington DC on 010911.
BS0449 - ref SDS 24 0001
BS0451 - ..
BS0452 - 7. Sprinkling in a few truths, e.g., that "reengineering" was
BS0453 - largely misapplied in the 90s, ref SDS 0 MQ7M, and that
BS0454 - improvement requires temporarily setting aside disbelief,
BS0455 - ref SDS 0 MQ50, in order to test more useful beliefs, by
BS0456 - experimenting to acquire new experience, cannot, however,
BS0457 - overcome the disconnect between the notice for the KM event in
BS0458 - New York on 060625, ref SDS 0 K47Q, and any reasonable notion
BS0459 - of "knowledge," ref DIT 1 ZQ5J, as a process that continually
BS0460 - refines accuracy of understanding, i.e., mentally associating,
BS0461 - and remembering, cause and effect, based on experience and
BS0462 - history of people taking action, as set out in analysis today.
BS0463 - ref SDS 0 K47Q This seems to be the opposite of what is
BS0464 - proposed for the event in New York, as shown below (e.g.,
BS0465 - "mechanism" typically implies process, efficiency and
BS0466 - productivity by saving time, money and lives, but is used
BS0467 - throughout the event notice as an odious epithet, ref SDS 0
BS0468 - K47Q and ref SDS 0 MQ7M), and so underscores research on 020812
BS0469 - indicating that people, who claim to advocate advance from
BS0470 - information to a culture of knowledge, in fact, cling to the
BS0471 - old ways of relying on talk to avoid accountability, as
BS0472 - observed by Andy Grove, reviewed on 980307, ref SDS 13 1657,
BS0473 - and noted earlier by Plato in 400 BC, commenting on tensions,
BS0474 - still evident today in your announcement advocating reliance on
BS0475 - conversation to build the job, ref SDS 0 LZ6O, and avering the
BS0476 - linear mechanics of literacy (see again, ref SDS 0 K47Q), much
BS0477 - less advancing to knowledge tools that strengthen accuracy by
BS0478 - an order of magnitude, reviewed on 991209. ref SDS 19 3416
BS0480 - ..
BS0481 - 8. Accordingly, there is no basis to eschew, as Colabria's seminar
BS0482 - notice does, ref SDS 0 K47Q, critical connections between
BS0483 - people, process and time, as set out in POIMS, ref OF 3 015M,
BS0484 - aided and applied through alphabet technology, see again POIMS,
BS0485 - ref OF 3 ER3G, since that is the mechanism of the locality
BS0486 - principle, reviewed on 040312, ref SDS 34 YH4G, which drives
BS0487 - civilization by making people superhuman, observed by Doug
BS0488 - Lenat, reviewed on 010622. ref SDS 23 N668
BS0490 - ..
BS0491 - 9. There are many well meaning and talented people working along
BS0492 - side you in knowledge management, as there are in medicine,
BS0493 - engineering, government, education, et al. Hopefully, some will
BS0494 - come to New York and help adjust course toward integrating
BS0495 - management science, computer science and cognitive science,
BS0496 - generally called out by Drucker in his article published in the
BS0497 - Atlantic Monthly to solve the core problem he identified
BS0498 - earlier, reviewed on 991025, ref SDS 16 0207, and supported by
BS0499 - luminaries like Engelbart, Conklin, Gelernter, Landauer, and
BS0500 - others.
BS0502 - ..
BS0503 - 10. Since there is no lack of good ideas, please focus on making
BS0504 - good use of them in future events. Don't tell us what you're
BS0505 - not doing -- tell us how KM can help people ask the right
BS0506 - questions to innovate and improve objectives, requirements and
BS0507 - commitments for getting things done correctly, on time and
BS0508 - within budget to save lives, time and money.
BS0510 - ..
BS0511 - 11. Tell us how KM can add intelligence to information that grows
BS0512 - knowledge for solving gridlock in transportation, technology,
BS0513 - leadership, health care, national security. This is a big,
BS0514 - important, urgent agenda. Let's get to work.
BS0516 - ..
BS0517 - 12. Good luck with your event.
BS0519 - [On 040621 John responds explaining that rigid analytic,
BS0520 - mechanistic thinking is not suited for knowledge-based
BS0521 - economies; proposes 1 dimensional approach using only
