1004 - Summary/Objective
100501 - Follow up ref SDS 40 0000, ref SDS 39 0000.
100503 - Eugene Kim explains an upcoming professional seminar on creating and
100504 - applying a DKR to aid collaboration. ref SDS 0 ZS5T DKRs can, also,
100505 - be applied more broadly to refine accuracy of knowledge on everything
100506 - through continual learning, ref SDS 0 ZS5P, based on Peirce's work
100507 - developing semiotics. ref SDS 0 ZT3S Triangulation applies experience
100508 - effectively to improve accuracy of knowledge. ref SDS 0 ZT5V The
100509 - model of an encyclopedia with knowledge for performing daily work is
100510 - presented to illustrate how SDS is used. Constructing a knowledge base
100511 - requires writing skill that integrates expert analysis with daily
100512 - experience more than expert knowledge in a particular field.
100513 - ref SDS 0 ZT7T Tools that support dynamic linking are essential for a
100514 - dynamic knowledge repository (DKR), ref SDS 0 ZT9R, in order to
100515 - provide precision access based on time and context management.
100516 - ref SDS 0 IB9I Jack Park comments that learning is "deeper" than
100517 - refining truths. ref SDS 0 OW9L Jack seems to recognize POIMS support
100518 - for context is useful and unique, yet objects to this support.
100519 - ref SDS 0 EI4X Jack further notes SDS fits requirements for personal
100520 - and organizational memory, and feels the open source issue requires
100521 - Fleabyte to continue searching for other tools. ref SDS 0 EI5T A
100522 - letter responds by citing importance of tools to improve memory for
100523 - augmenting intelligence. ref SDS 0 QA5W An example from medical
100524 - practical illustrates poor memory in the work place, with tragic
100525 - consequences, and opportunity to improve productivity all around by
100526 - using available tools for augmenting intelligence. ref SDS 0 QA8W
100527 - Henry expresses appreciation for vigorous view, and reports favorable
100528 - evaluation of SDS. He feels SDS might support editorial memory as part
100529 - of personal and organizational memory and management (POIMS).

100902 - Innovation Loop Using DKR for Seminar to Improve Seminars on DKR
100903 - DKR Aids Collaboration for Seminar of Using DKRs for Better Seminars
100905 - Submitted ref DIT 1 0001 letter to Henry and others explaining
100906 - innovation loop in planning presented by Eugene Kim on information
100907 - technology engineers using a DKR to capture a record on a professional
100908 - event to explain application of a DKR which will only be used to plan
100909 - another seminar on DKR development.
100911 - ..
100912 - Background on Eugene's work with Blueoxen is reported on 030314.
100913 - ref SDS 31 5545
100915 - ..
100916 - Letter to Henry and the team says...
100918 - 1. Eugene makes a good point in his letter on 050114, shown below,
100919 - on conducting a professional event that aims for synergy
100920 - between a dynamic knowledge repository (DKR) and collaboration.
100921 - ref DIT 1 0001
100923 - ..
100924 - 2. An initial question Fleabyte can address might define the
100925 - purpose of a DKR that augments thinking and facilitates
100926 - collaboration, but, which also grows through collaboration and
100927 - a wide variety of other means. ref DIT 1 CR6G
100929 - ..
100930 - 3. For example, Eugene plans to generate a DKR for an upcoming
100931 - professional event, which will yield lessons learned for doing
100932 - future events, and which in turn will contribute to the DKR.
100933 - ref DIT 1 CL6K Does a DKR then relate to particular subjects,
100934 - like learning to conduct professional events; or, might a DKR
100935 - provide guidance on matters presented during a professional
100936 - event? One can imagine that experience and lessons learned on
100937 - conducting professional events would indeed bear directly on
100938 - future similar events, but what of the content in the events?
100939 - Can we truly say that "learning" occurs from a presentation,
100940 - and if so is it "knowledge" or is it mere awareness that
100941 - someone said something and offered evidence relevant to
100942 - particular contexts? This seems like a critical factor
100943 - applying lessons stored in a Dynamic Knowledge Repository
100944 - (DKR). What makes it "dynamic" and what makes it "knowledge."
100945 - Eugene's letter offers that continually adding new information
100946 - from follow on events makes a repository "dynamic." Sounds
100947 - "good to go."
100949 - ..
100950 - 4. To illustrate, on 000518 Jack introduced Professor Marry Keeler
100951 - during a meeting at SRI to define "knowledge" toward designing
100952 - a DKR. ref DIT 1 JL8J Professor Keeler cited the work of
100953 - Charles Peirce, who developed semiotic theory of knowledge in
100954 - the early 20th century. ref SDS 16 8439 Peirce's work on
100955 - semiotic philosophy has recently gained renewed interest for
100956 - guidance on using technology to aid "knowledge" formation. How
100957 - so? Earlier, on 000515 Jack submitted a paper Mary prepared on
100958 - her study of Peirce which disclosed that experience drives
100959 - formation of knowledge, and this means the accuracy of
100960 - knowledge in the human mind is continually refined by new
100961 - experience. ref SDS 14 7380
100963 - [...below, research on Peirce defining knowledge as
100964 - justified true belief. ref SDS 0 9X94
100966 - ..
100967 - 5. Eugene's model of using experience from past professional
100968 - events to refine knowledge for conducting future events appears
100969 - to align with Peirce's ideas on human mental metrics. Might
100970 - this be a good model for a DKR, i.e., we are all equipped to
100971 - grow knowledge, and so can we configure technology to augment
100972 - the intelligence process for dynamically generating,
100973 - connecting, storing, and retrieving knowledge, in the same way
100974 - that an automobile augments physical strength to move about
100975 - with heavier loads by some significant order of magnitude?
100976 - ref DIT 1 ON9L
100978 - ..
100979 - POIMS explains components of Knowledge Management, ref OF 6 0367, and
100980 - discussed further below reviewing definition of knowledge based on
100981 - philosophy. ref SDS 0 9X94 and ref SDS 0 SF5K

Triangulate All Information Streams to Leverage New Knowledge Knowle
130501 - ..
130502 - Triangulate All Information Streams Leverage New Knowledge
130503 - Knowledge from Seminars on DKR Should Integrate All Information
130506 - Letter to Henry and circle of advocates continues...
130508 - 6. How then to expand the model for using a DKR to collaborate on
130509 - professional events, to further include content of such events,
130510 - and all other events? ref DIT 1 XN4M
130512 - ..
130513 - 7. One way would be to triangulate new information in a
130514 - professional event with related experience from all events,
130515 - like reading a book, attending meetings, getting and sending
130516 - email, seeing a movie, etc. ref DIT 1 TN5H The challenge
130517 - becomes how to make dynamic connections between disparate
130518 - events that accumulate evidence with sufficient weight that
130519 - justify a conclusion of a "lesson" which can be relied upon for
130520 - future conduct? This suggests a DKR supports dynamics between
130521 - learning and taking action, described as "thinking" and "doing"
130522 - in POIMS. ref OF 6 2050

360608 - Letter to Henry and circle of advocates continues...
360610 - 8. The suggestion that a DKR requires input from experts is not
360611 - entirely supported by experience. Mark Twain defined an
360612 - "expert" as "Some guy from out of town." ref DIT 1 1K5O
360613 - Setting humor aside, while credentials are helpful and
360614 - important, ultimately the critical factor that grows
360615 - "knowledge" is experience, also called history. The notion of
360616 - an "encyclopedia" that organizes experience based on the
360617 - structure of knowledge, some might call a taxonomy, or ontology
360618 - fits this model. It should seek out experts, make appropriate
360619 - attribution, and present competing views on open questions, but
360620 - conclusions must ultimately be grounded in experience that
360621 - establish reliable belief in causation. [see review of
360622 - philosophy that defines "knowledge" as "justified true belief."
360623 - ref SDS 0 SF5K] Thus, in my view, an effective DKR requires a
360624 - generalist, not an expert. This means that people like Eugene
360625 - and Henry are ideal for the task of growing knowledge using
360626 - skills of reporting, and journalism. Other skills are also
360627 - needed, but history begins with writing the story.
360629 - ..
360630 - Background on the evolution of encyclopedia extending the power of
360631 - alphabet technology is reported on 940510. Getting finance and
360632 - selling the first encyclopedia encountered resistance, ref SDS 4 8403

360634 - knowledge, discussed on 041118. ref SDS 36 KU85

360637 - Encyclopedia is a metaphor that builds an intellectual bridge from

360640 - Space, explained in POIMS, ref OF 9 6649, and reported beginning on

360642 - metaphor for SDS discussed at Intel on 950927, ref SDS 6 51HP, citing
360643 - POIMS beginning in 1989. ref OF 9 4662 Expanding the power of
360644 - encyclopedia to support daily work is part of the scope for
360645 - intelligence support listed in NWO. ref OF 15 18UQ POIMS explains how
360646 - SDS extends the traditional static encyclopedia into a dynamic source
360647 - of knowledge for getting things done. ref OF 9 4662 This fits the
360648 - model of language driving transformation to a culture of knowledge,
360649 - discussed in research Gary submitted on 040508. ref SDS 35 568F
360651 - ..
360652 - A list of "intellectual bridges" from present practice to SDS is

370409 - 9. Fleabyte might then look for tools that empower a broad base of
370410 - people to work "intelligently" by "connecting the dots" with
370411 - dynamic links from daily experience that continually refine the
370412 - accuracy of knowledge in a personal "encyclopedia." ref DIT 1

370418 - ..
370419 - Dynamic linking is mentioned initially as a core requirement for
370420 - dynamic knowledge repository. ref SDS 0 ZT6Q This is reflected by
370421 - Eugene Kim's letter discussing goals for linking, reviewed on 000516.
370422 - ref SDS 15 VP5S

420517 - 11. Of course, accumulating a lot of experience in stories does not
420518 - yield useful history for lessons learned, discussed in NWO.
420519 - ref OF 13 4235 Human reasoning tends to make conclusions of

420531 - Machine" on 900303. ref SDS 1 3016
420533 - ..
420534 - People yearn to have information presented through stories in
420535 - chronological order because time imparts causation, which can
420536 - be applied for decisions on future events with similar context,
420537 - i.e., planning. ref DIT 1 LN5I
420539 - ..
420540 - However, a dynamic repository of stories in chronological order
420541 - does not comprise useful "knowledge." People need precision
420542 - access based on situational awareness, ref OF 15 PX6J, that
420543 - "connects the dots" between stories from current events and
420544 - related history based on the context of objectives,
420545 - requirements, and commitments. (see NWO for the role of stories
420546 - to augment intelligence. ref OF 13 4235) A DKR that integrates
420547 - time and context augments intelligence for getting things done
420548 - on time, within budget and correctly to save lives, time, and
420549 - money, while further disclosing the secrets of nature, commonly

440411 - ..
440412 - 13. Eugene notes in his letter how a DKR can help plan future
440413 - professional events. Additional application to education,
440414 - government, business, health care, science, ref DIT 1 6Q7K, and
440415 - other areas driven by knowledge are listed in the record on

440418 - ..
440419 - 14. On 000120 Eric Armstrong and others discussed creating a DKR to
440420 - solve world problems. People posed the prospect of eliminating
440421 - poverty, war, pestilence, ignorance, decadence... ref DIT 1
440422 - QQ8I That may be. A DKR can further support daily routine
440423 - tasks described by Doug in his 1972 paper, which he cited on
440424 - 000327. ref SDS 12 3971
440426 - ..
440427 - 15. Perhaps learning to use a DKR for personal and organizational
440428 - "encyclopedia" for performing personal and organizational tasks
440429 - correctly that save lives, time, and money will lead toward
440430 - larger societal goals, as civilization takes another leap,

530726 - piece of knowledge, then that suits me fine. The issue that I
530727 - recall was being discussed had something to do with the grand

700418 - Checking on the Internet shows Peirce seems to be correct. Therefore
700419 - this review uses Mohler's spelling of Pierce, and then returns to the
700420 - evidently correct spelling...
700422 - ..
700423 - Rosenberg describes Peirce's semiotic philosophy...
700425 - Having rejected true belief as the end of our cognitive
700426 - activity, Rosenberg puts in its place justified belief. Pierce
700427 - says science allows us to reach some stability in our
700428 - "matter-of-factual" (empirical) beliefs. In broad terms,
700429 - Pierce's account goes like this. Our perceptual experience
700430 - occasionally leads us to form judgments that are "dissonant"
700431 - with our previous expectations for that experience. That
700432 - dissonance leads to the creation in us of doubt about those
700433 - expectations, and that doubt is eliminated when we can
700434 - accommodate those judgments in an explanatory account that
700435 - explains not only our current experience but also future
700436 - experiences that we may come to have. The beliefs that come
700437 - about as the result of this abductive reasoning are justified
700438 - by that reasoning. Doubt is eliminated, and the so-justified
700439 - beliefs thereby enjoy relative stability (244). ref OF 2 5V46
700441 - ..
700442 - This seems a bit awkward relative to the general proposition that the
700443 - weight of evidence increases confidence understanding correlations of
700444 - cause and effect. Review on 000515 indicated Peirce held that
700445 - accuracy, i.e., truth, requires continual inquiry, as shown next.

830480 - The author spends a lot of time explaining justification for "belief,"

830534 - Mary's paper says in part referring to Peirce...
830536 - He was convinced, through his professional work as a scientist,
830537 - that absolute accuracy is unattainable, and his pragmatism
830538 - regards truth as a limit successively approached by
830539 - increasingly refined investigations, which depend on
830540 - communication among collaborating investigators. ref OF 1 7553
830542 - ..
830543 - "Self-criticism can never be perfectly thorough for the last
830544 - act of criticism is always itself open to criticism. But as
830545 - long as we remain disposed to self-criticism and to further
830546 - inquiry, we have in this disposition an assurance that if the
830547 - truth of any question can ever be got at, we shall eventually
830548 - get at it." (CSP-MS 831; 1900), ref OF 1 0837
830550 - ..
830551 - Peirce developed his theory of experience (semiotic) to explain
830552 - how self-critical conduct (learning by experience) is possible,
830553 - as a context for generalizing logic: "Logic, in its general
830554 - sense, is, as I believe I have shown, only another name for
830555 - semiotic" (MS 798; CP 2.227--1896). ref OF 1 6400
830557 - ..
830558 - Knowledge, to be both vital and viable, must evolve from the
830559 - progressive resolution of the diversity of our individual
830560 - experiences of the world in the continuity of collective
830561 - inquiry, by means of communication. His semiotic examines the
830562 - esthetic, ethical, and logical basis of the self- critical
830563 - control necessary for collective experience to progress
830564 - effectively. ref OF 1 4209
830566 - ..
830567 - Mary seems to correlate "truth" with learning from experience, and
830568 - further correlates learning with knowledge, which per se does not
830569 - distinguish truth from knowledge, but indeed seems to that knowledge
830570 - evolves from continual learning, and that truth is part of this mix.
830572 - ..
830573 - The objective of the expression that learning is deeper than refining
830574 - truth is unclear?
830576 - ..
830577 - How does this relate to Peirce's semiotic theory of knowledge, per
830578 - Joe's analysis on 000729? ref SDS 18 0005
830580 - ..
830581 - Would help for Jack to give some examples of how the "grand waltz" he
830582 - cites is carried out, ref SDS 0 EH6U, by whom, and to what ends in
830583 - order to understand the meaning of this phrase.
830585 - ..
830586 - Jack continues...
830588 - 3. On the surface, with some notable exceptions on this planet, I
830589 - think that most people would agree with the notion that all men
830590 - are, indeed, created equal. Factor women into the term "men"
830591 - and you get lots more in agreement, with a lot of grumbling, I
830592 - suppose. ref DRT 1 GI7I Nevertheless, I also suspect that it
830593 - depends on where your hyperscope has its "zoom" dial set as to
830594 - whether you actually see equality among men. Certainly, at the
830595 - genetic level, the only equality among men would be limited to
830596 - the fact that all do posess genes. Inside that reference frame,
830597 - equality ends and the original (larger) truth is now suspect.
830599 - ..
830600 - 4. That is all to say: it depends on context. ref DRT 1 NI8J
830602 - ..
830603 - Jack can provide a few examples how his analysis of context applies to
830604 - the letter above on using a DKR for daily work, in addition to
830605 - planning a seminar on a DKR. ref SDS 0 ZT6P
830607 - ..
830608 - In Jack's example context applies to "equality of men" with respect to
830609 - treatment under the law. He begins the inquiry observing that
830610 - "someone once said," which is critical to assess context. Jefferson
830611 - wrote the declaration of independence as a political document, not a
830612 - statement of biology. So, he might say that while there are many
830613 - biological differences between individuals, a body politic is designed
830614 - to grant certain rights uniformly, and in this sense there is to be
830615 - equal treatment, thus, the blindfolded statue of justice.

BI0507 - 1. Dear Rod and Jack,
BI0509 - ..
BI0510 - 2. Yours are two keen posts.
BI0512 - ..
BI0513 - 3. First off, I continue to be impressed by Rod's POIMS-aided
BI0514 - ability to quickly bring various components of a subject
BI0515 - together regardless of times lapsed. This does not mean that I
BI0516 - perceive POIMS as THE solution to working Fleabyte, but in the
BI0517 - sense that it provides "organizational memory" (which I
BI0518 - translate to "editorial memory") it appears to be a very useful
BI0519 - tool indeed. Only thing I am still scared of at this point is
BI0520 - the learning curve for the simple reason that there are other
BI0521 - learning curves to climb as well. But I am being subjective and
BI0522 - that is why Fleabyte needs to have an R&D arm, to look at
BI0523 - augmentation tools (including those of the Master - Doug
BI0524 - himself) in terms of, both, what Fleabyte is trying to do as
BI0525 - well as in terms of augmenting personal and group intellect in
BI0526 - a process of lifelong learning.

BI0529 - Henry's favorable comments today align with Henry's letter on 050110
BI0530 - citing SDS support for organizational memory. ref SDS 38 US4Y Earlier
BI0531 - on 000926, ref SDS 19 IP7F, wrote a letter commending SDS, and this
BI0532 - led to seeing a demonstration on 001105. ref SDS 20 8352
BI0534 - ..
BI0535 - On 001126, Henry further commended SDS to the same people ref SDS 21
BI0536 - K16L, he notified today, and at that time, the team decided to ignore
BI0537 - the opportunity to learn Knowledge Management, noted in Eugene's
BI0538 - letter at that time. ref SDS 21 T63N

BI0541 - Henry continues...
BI0543 - 4. Our work involves more than tapping into information gathered
BI0544 - from different places at different times. It also calls for
BI0545 - integration of even very disparate pieces of information. Here
BI0546 - is the interplay of experts and generalists of paramount
BI0547 - importance. Much of such interplay is already provided by
BI0548 - popular scientific literature, those books that give an
BI0549 - overview and interpretation based on extensive sources. Much of
BI0550 - our work would be to take those kind of books as sources for
BI0551 - even wider vistas.
BI0553 - ..
BI0554 - 5. Let me give a simple example. Paul Seabright's "The Company of
BI0555 - Strangers: A natural History of Economic Life" celebrates how
BI0556 - human beings have evolved from a murderous lot into a far more
BI0557 - decent humanity (with still a long way to go). A key role is
BI0558 - played by trading goods and services. Not much is said about
BI0559 - the fact that every thing we purchase begins with some
BI0560 - degradation of the environment.
BI0562 - ..
BI0563 - 6. And now we have a piece of work by Jared Diamond, "Collapse:
BI0564 - How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed." To epitomize its
BI0565 - contents, a comparison is made between the Dominican Republic
BI0566 - and Haiti, two countries that share one island, Hispanolia.
BI0567 - Haiti was the wealthier of the two not so long ago, but the
BI0568 - upshot is that now the Dominican Republic is lush with forests
BI0569 - whereas Haiti has been utterly degraded. Last year, torrential
BI0570 - rains proved catastrophic for Haiti whereas the Dominican
BI0571 - Republic suffered no such consequences. Common wisdom has it
BI0572 - that Haiti merely suffers from political and ethnic problems,
BI0573 - but there is more to it. (I haven't read Diamond's book yet; I
BI0574 - am writing here from a detailed review of his work by one who
BI0575 - focused on similar situations as Diamond did.) "One of the
BI0576 - strengths of Diamond's bok is that he explores the
BI0577 - environmental context of social chaos, arguing that in Haiti
BI0578 - and Rwanda the collapse of civilization is already taking place
BI0579 - before our eyes."
BI0581 - ..
BI0582 - 7. "If globalization's great dream of bringing prosperity to all
BI0583 - should ever come true, the worldwide impact would multiply by
BI0584 - twelve, even at present population levels.... No one at the UN
BI0585 - or in First World governments is willing to acknowledge the
BI0586 - dream's impossibility.... The notion that growth can be
BI0587 - boundless is clearly the Big Lie of our times."
BI0589 - ..
BI0590 - 8. I just read the review this afternoon. This morning I ran into
BI0591 - an article about a report the Millennium Project is about to
BI0592 - present to Kofi Annan. It is about drastically cutting down on
BI0593 - poverty. I haven't read that report, but this as well as other
BI0594 - reports on the feasibility of worldwide progress need to be
BI0595 - seen in the context of such observations as made by Diamond.
BI0597 - ..
BI0598 - 9. What I am illustrating here is that although POIMS looks like a
BI0599 - very useful tool, I don't believe it is the end-all. Our
BI0600 - objective is good, increasingly integrative evaluation of where
BI0601 - humanity is at, PLUS good thinking about how we get this to be
BI0602 - understood by every member of the electorate in democratic
BI0603 - societies, which puts in the domain of lifelong civics
BI0604 - education. (One article I hope to attract is about varieties of
BI0605 - democracy. As an aside to Jack, who has met my grandson Eric,
BI0606 - Eric is completing his undergraduate year in political science
BI0607 - with a minor in economics; he hopes to follow through with
BI0608 - Law.)
