Video Conference Communication Metrics Authenticate Accuracy Follow
1803 - ..
1804 - Summary/Objective
180501 - Follow up ref SDS 9 0000. ref SDS 7 0000.
180503 - Excellent work by Morris developing command template for transferring
180504 - SDS files to the Internet with FTP provided by the cmd.exe program
180505 - that is part of Windows XP. ref SDS 0 M37K Application in SDS makes
180506 - working intelligently with Knowledge Space on the Internet faster and
180507 - easier to save lives, time, and money. ref SDS 0 CA6O Implemented
180508 - this in secondary memory with a new mouse call for executing FTP file
180509 - transfers, this enables realtime multi-tasking, and interoperability.
180510 - Existing system will remain in parallel for awhile, but should
180511 - eventually be able to eliminate code to maintain the transfer
180512 - directory, since it is now accomplished with transfer ops. This
180513 - improvement is significant for eliminating the requirement to provide
180514 - users with another vendor's work product, and one that is down level,
180515 - requiring complex installation. Marketing and customer support are
180516 - therefore simplified. Work operations are also faster. Previously a
180517 - separate program had to be opened, and several clicks were required to
180518 - do what now takes a single click. FTP program of some kind is still
180519 - needed to delete files, and to do things like transfer files to Gary,
180520 - which are not part of constructing Knowledge Space on the Internet.
180529 - ..
1808 - Progress
180901 - Video Conference Communication Metrics Authenticate Accuracy Follow Up
180903 - Follow up ref SDS 9 H36L, ref SDS 7 443M.
180905 - When I arrived, Morris was watching and listening to a presentation by
180906 - an Intel executive that was broadcast for video conference, which he
180907 - received on his notebook computer, similar to Doug Engelbart's
180908 - colloquium at Stanford, reported on 991222. ref SDS 3 LE42 Experience
180909 - at that time indicated video conferencing is not effective for
180910 - learning, ref SDS 4 UE5H, because people need text for converting
180911 - information in the presentation into knowledge with chronology,
180912 - context, and connections. This cannot be accomplished with a video
180913 - broadcast, noted by Stanford's team who has been doing this work for
180914 - 30 years, reported on 991222. ref SDS 3 3908
180916 - ..
180917 - Today, I asked if the Intel speaker produced a paper that can be
180918 - incorporated into the record for study? Morris said that Intel
180919 - speakers sometimes provide Powerpoint files that have an outline and
180920 - pictures to help people remember anything important.
180922 - ..
180923 - This does not fit the model presented by Andy Grove in his book
180924 - calling for copious notes to avoid ambiguity of mental maps, reviewed
180925 - on 980307. ref SDS 2 3668

260402 - 00904 Macro Construct Command File for FTP Transfer to Internet
260404 - Follow up ref SDS 9 H36L, ref SDS 7 443M.
260406 - While Morris finished listening to the Intel broadcast meeting,
260407 - developed planning for the work today.
260409 - ..
260410 - Key question implementing a new system...
260412 - 1. Load files directly to the Internet, or continue to store in a
260413 - temporary directory and transfer them as a separate step at
260414 - will. Morris said that Microsoft tools send files immediately
260415 - to the Interet, and suggested consideration of this change to
260416 - SDS.
260418 - ..
260419 - Loading directly to the Internet eliminates a change of mind
260420 - about what to put on the Internet, and also would prevent
260421 - current practice of rendering locally confidential files and
260422 - records in a web browser, which is very useful, e.g., printing
260423 - for controlled distribution. We could probably develop an
260424 - approach to solve this, but it would drive up the code.
260426 - ..
260427 - If the local computer is not connected to the Internet, then
260428 - transfer would fail.
260430 - ..
260431 - Using a separate batch operation allows local rendering without
260432 - sending confidential files to the Internet. It further
260433 - supports accumulating transfers when this step is supported by
260434 - context, and then executing when Internet connections are
260435 - available to make the transfer. These two conditions do not
260436 - always align.
260438 - ..
260439 - Decided to keep the current design with separate transfer
260440 - for greater flexibility and confidentiality.
260442 - ..
260443 - 2. How to execute the new command, since it will not require
260444 - loading the ftp program.
260446 - a. Click below Quit=ESQ, to complement click above Quit=ESQ
260447 - to create HTML content.
260449 - b. Eliminate click above Schedule/Diary, because no longer
260450 - needed, and assign this to transfer files in the transfer
260451 - directory to the Internet.
260453 - ..
260454 - c. For now, keep existing features while trying the new
260455 - system, and execute transfers by clicking next to the
260456 - space for creating an HTML file for transfer.
260460 - ..
260461 - Windows XP DOS command reference guide is in Help and search for...
260463 - command-line reference a-z
260465 - ..
260466 - Morris used ftp access criteria for welchco.com from work on 060220.
260467 - ref SDS 7 443M
260469 - ..
260470 - FTP commands are on the Internet at...
260472 - http://www.ucalgary.ca/~physed/mmi/ftp-manual.html
260474 - ..
260475 - Morris created this for a batch file to call a content file...
260479 - ..
260480 - Morris developed batch file code for ftp processing with commands that
260481 - are part of the DOS feature in Windows XP, initially considered on
260482 - 060116, ref SDS 6 O65H, discussed again on 060220, ref SDS 7 4C5L, and
260483 - noted by Gary Johnson in a letter on 060220. ref SDS 8 HF8T
260485 - ..
260486 - Morris experimented and eventually came up with a command file format
260487 - that executes by the batch file using the Microsoft FTP commands, per
260488 - above. ref SDS 0 0E87
260490 - ..
260491 - This template solves two problems Morris had previously indicted
260492 - could not be accomplished...
260494 - 1. Recursively construct the directory structure on the server
260495 - that replicates the structure on the local computer, as stated
260496 - in the record on 060220. ref SDS 7 446U
260498 - ..
260499 - 2. Enter password automatically, so the user does not have to do
260500 - this. All the user should do is make a single or perhaps 2 or
260501 - 3 clicks. If the user has to enter a password, this will
260502 - greatly slow the work.
260504 - ..
260505 - After an hour or so of trying alternate schemes, the following does
260506 - everything required with a single click.
260581 - ..
260582 - Thanked Morris for developing the above template. This was later
260583 - applied to eliminate use of wsftp. New macro c: 01 04 009040 does the
260584 - main work of formatting the upload commands. ref OF 1 MJ5I
260586 - ..
260587 - Eliminating use of the wsftp software program, eliminates a complex
260588 - installation task for configuring the SDS program for new users, and
260589 - further eliminates a marketing problem of getting permission to
260590 - distribute another vendor's product with payment issues. Wsftp
260591 - remains useful
260593 - ..
260594 - The new scheme reduces keystrokes from 10 to only 1, applying Moore's
260595 - Law to improve management, reported on 040320. ref SDS 5 HU6F
260597 - ..
260598 - Previously, it was necessary to open another software program, and
260599 - wait for it to connect to a server on the Internet, then execute other
260600 - clicks and enter a few keystrokes with the keyboard. After data
260601 - transfer, the FTP program had to be closed, and the transfer directory
260602 - had to be mantained with another click. This could take 10 seconds to
260603 - a minute or so. Repeated 10 times during a typical day, this activity
260604 - consumed perhaps 30 minutes to an hour. Now all of these tasks are
260605 - accomplished with a single click. Interoperability and multi-tasking
260606 - allow work in the current window to be performed conncurrent with
260607 - activity in the background. Attention is no longer divided between
260608 - analysis of the work, and software mechanics required to accomplish
260609 - work.
260611 - ..
260612 - Making good management faster and easier. supports goals for anytime,
260613 - anywhere intelligence helping make the Internet a "paperless office"
260614 - that scales up and leverages use of knowledge for collaboration, as
260615 - planned on 971021. ref SDS 1 JN3I
260617 - ..
260618 - Modified c: sd 03 000001 macro 230 adding a new call to transfer files
260619 - to the Internet. ref OF 7 446F
260621 - Eventually we can do away with one of the calls to maintain the
260622 - transfer file. Will let this hang around for awhile until more
260623 - experience is gained with the new system.
260625 - ..
260626 - Calls to File menu in SDS, ref OF 3 LG8J, and, also, in the Editor,
260627 - ref OF 2 FD8F, execute the new function.
260629 - ..
260630 - Batch file sd 01 00904.bat is called by Medit macro code commands
260631 - executed by clicking the mouse. This call launches the Windows start
260632 - command to call 00904.cmd to do the actual work in a separate memory
260633 - segment. This saves memory and avoids crashes.
260635 - Calling ftp transfers with the Microsoft Windows start command
260636 - enables concurrent work that extends SDS interoperability. Rather
260637 - than having to focus on mechanics of running an FTP program, a
260638 - single click launches a sequence of commands that execute in the
260639 - background, while the user continues concentrating on work at
260640 - hand, performing analysis, writing things down, and linking things
260641 - up. This increases command and control of the work by orders of
260642 - magnitude, reported in POIMS. ref OF 16 1113
260644 - ..
260645 - Morris' work today helped to extend the process of reducing time
260646 - and effort for working intelligently under Moore's Law, as
260647 - reviewed on 040305. ref SDS 5 JT5F
260649 - ..
260650 - 00904 can maintain the transfer directory, ref OF 6 J03M, so we can do
260651 - away with the wsftp log issue.
260653 - ..
260654 - Was able to rig the code to avoid crashing if it finds nothing to
260655 - transport, but cannot get an error message back to the user on this.
