4603 - ..
4604 - Summary/Objective
460501 - Follow up ref SDS 42 0000.
460503 - Letter to Jack asks if reference to "alphabet technology" in a paper
460504 - he submitted last month is part of study to understand SDS, which he
460505 - planned to do ealier. ref SDS 0 IK5H Studying "alphabet technology"
460506 - was significant for talking about POIMS theory of intelligence
460507 - support, since for many years people trying to develop, and who
460508 - eventually gave up on Knowledge Management, did not talk about SDS.
460509 - ref SDS 0 WL5T Jack responded in a letter that makes a breakthrough
460510 - for Knowledge Management by using line numbers for precision access.
460511 - ref SDS 0 RH6L Using explicit links will further increase efficient
460512 - communication. ref SDS 0 XZ6O Jack clarifies progress understanding
460513 - SDS remains slow because "alphabet technology" is too abstract for his
460514 - work. The reference in the paper he submitted was mere coincidence.
460515 - ref SDS 0 TX9S Jack cites SDS support for a "personal subject map,"
460516 - and says SDS is worthy of review. ref SDS 0 TX9X A response to Jack
460517 - explains the "plan, perform, report" intelligence support is a main
460518 - feature of SDS. ref SDS 0 KV6O Flexible structure and granularity are
460519 - mentioned in the follow up letter on SDS support for Knowledge
460520 - Management. ref SDS 0 KW4O, noting the scope of SDS support is listed
460521 - and explained in the record on 890523. ref SDS 0 MM3N A case study
460522 - indicating SDS invented the "wheel" of Knowledge Mangement supports
460523 - Jack's feeling in his letter today that SDS is worthy of review.
460524 - ref SDS 0 M53N Jack recommends people should not try to "reinvent
460525 - the wheel" of Knowledge Management. ref SDS 0 TX4W Ideas to apply
460526 - other tools into SDS can be evaluated by demonstrating better
460527 - productivity. ref SDS 0 LL4O An example is Apache Solr Subject Map
460528 - SDS Platform proposed increase market appeal. ref SDS 0 TX5U
460534 - ..
4608 - Progress
460901 - Alphabet Technology Engine of Civilization
460903 - Submitted ref DIT 1 0001 to Jack Park with copies to Gary and Morris,
460904 - and commenting on review of a paper received on 071113, ref SDS 42
460905 - FU6I, from Jack, "Technologies of Cooperation," ref OF 1 0001, and
460906 - discussing the power of alphabet technology to advance civilization by
460907 - amplifying the power of thinking. ref SDS 42 PH4K
460909 - ..
460910 - The letter says to Jack...
460912 - 1. Noticed in the paper you submitted the other day there was
460913 - mention of alphabet technology as the engine of civilization;
460914 - doesn't say it quite like that, but "amplifies the power of
460915 - thinking" seems close enough. ref SDS 42 PH4K, ref DIT 1 0001
460917 - ..
460918 - The link to the record on 071113 asks if Jack submitting the paper on
460919 - Technologies for Cooperation is part of studying alphabet technology,
460920 - ref SDS 42 EU7F, which Jack planned on 011208? ref SDS 28 456G
460922 - [...below, Jack clarifies mention of alphabet technology in
460923 - the paper he submitted Technologies of Cooperation was
460924 - coincidental rather than an effort to study SDS, POIMS, and
460925 - alphabet technology; he feels alphabet technology is too
460926 - abstract for his thinking and his audience. ref SDS 0 TX9S
460928 - ..
460929 - [...below, follow up letter thanks Jack for feedback and
460930 - citing line numbers for precision access in his letter this
460931 - morning, per below, ref SDS 0 UG3I, and reminding that
460932 - links using explicit link in SDS records increases
460933 - efficiency and accuracy of communication. ref SDS 0 XZ6O

700407 - Letter to Jack continues...
700409 - ..
700410 - 2. I was encouraged by this part of the paper, and noticed strong
700411 - support for networks using open source development. ref SDS 42
700412 - PH43 Wondered what others draw in relation to productivity
700413 - making sense of daily work with feedback, context management,
700414 - connections, chronology, analysis, etc. ref SDS 42 DY5M,

700422 - Review on 071113 shows Jack's submission of research on the alphabet
700423 - in the paper "Technologies of Cooperation," per above, ref SDS 0 QK5J,
700424 - addresses theory and practice presented in POIMS that explains SDS
700425 - tools for intelligence support. In the year 2000, Jack reported that
700426 - POIMS was not reviewed and discussed by people calling for Knowledge
700427 - Management, and who eventually gave up. ref SDS 42 264H

A30404 - Line Numbers Provide Orientation Knowledge Space Complemented by Links
A30406 - Received ref DRT 1 0001 from Jack with copies to Gary and to Morris.
A30407 - Jack responds to the letter this morning asking if submission of the
A30408 - paper Technologies of Cooperation on 071113 and which comments on
A30409 - alphabet technology is part of the study Jack planned on 011208, per
A30410 - above. ref SDS 0 IK5H
A30412 - ..
A30413 - Jack says...
A30415 - 1. On the web you ask...
A30417 - GIO447 - Is the reference to "Tools for Cooperation" part of
A30418 - that review process? [Jack refers to the record on 071113,
A30419 - ref SDS 42 NP6M], ref DRT 1 0001
A30421 - ..
A30422 - Line number "GIO447" in Jack's letter today provides "precision
A30423 - access" that orients his reference in Knowledge Space. Timely,
A30424 - accurate understanding of context lifts productivity of communication,
A30425 - noted on 890523. ref SDS 1 T1VQ Line numbers for precision access are
A30426 - part of SDS flexible structure explained during the meeting with
A30427 - Morris on 071212. ref SDS 43 QV5H
A30429 - [On 080124 Morris objects to flexible structure using line
A30430 - numbers for command and control of the work. ref SDS 45 945F
A30432 - ..
A30433 - [On 080606 Morris asks for help understanding purpose of line
A30434 - numbers to provide a well ordered record that supports
A30435 - efficient communication. ref SDS 49 2C5I
A30437 - ..
A30438 - [On 080611 Morris uses line numbers to focus near term
A30439 - communication, ref SDS 50 M38T, and comments that
A30440 - experience using wordprocessing does not convince people to
A30441 - use line numbers for a well ordred record, feeling that
A30442 - editing to refine understanding prevents long term use,
A30443 - ref SDS 50 M34P
A30445 - ..
A30446 - A follow up letter issued today, ref DIT 2 0001, and reported below,
A30447 - ref SDS 0 UG3I, commends Jack for submitting feedback in his letter
A30448 - this morning, and for citing a line number to the record on 071113,
A30449 - ref SDS 42 EU7F, which implements precision access. per above,
A30450 - ref SDS 0 RH6L, ref DIT 2 0001
A30452 - ..
A30453 - "Precision access" for efficient communication is explained in NWO.
A30454 - ref OF 15 PX6J
A30456 - ..
A30457 - Links complement linear node referents (line numbers) by empowering
A30458 - people with essentially instant precision access to context for
A30459 - comprehensive understanding, see again NWO. ref OF 15 07XP Creating
A30460 - links in email to SDS records is fast and easy. It takes less than 2
A30461 - minutes to learn and only seconds to use, reported by Stuart Harrow at
A30462 - DCMA on 020905. ref SDS 31 DAPW
A30464 - ..
A30465 - Follow up letter to Jack reminds about opportunities for improving
A30466 - efficiency of communication by adding links to email. ref DIT 2 T07L
A30468 - ..
A30469 - Jack's letter on 001116 said the ability of SDS to delineate temporal
A30470 - sequences (links) tracking discussion on the OHS/DKR project at SRI is
A30471 - simply amazing, and noted that SDS does a lot automatically that helps
A30472 - people work quickly, thoroughly, and accurately. ref SDS 21 SN4N
A30474 - ..
A30475 - Taking 10 seconds to create links in email provides efficiencies that
A30476 - avoid loss of productivity and economic decline that occurs when
A30477 - people give up on good management, noted in case study on 070126.
A30478 - ref SDS 37 YV4F
A30480 - ..
A30481 - Adding links to email implements "trails of associations" called out
A30482 - by Vannevar Bush in 1945 for improving productivity of knowledge work,
A30483 - reviewed on 960304. ref SDS 2 HE6L Doug Engelbart supported the Bush
A30484 - vision in a proposal at SRI developed in 1962, reviewed on 991222.
A30485 - ref SDS 4 XS6N On 000405 Engelbart again recommended reliance on
A30486 - links for efficient communication. ref SDS 9 2484
Alphabet Technology Too Abstract Knowledge Management Thinking Audie
BD0401 - ..
BD0402 - Alphabet Technology Abstract Knowledge Management Audience Thinking
BD0403 - Coincidental Mention Alphabet in Technologies of Cooperation
BD0405 - Jack's letter continues...
BD0407 - 2. In some sense, that paper is a part of my literature review.
BD0408 - Know this: I do not use the term "alphabet technology"; it's a
BD0409 - bit too abstract for my audience and thinking. ref DRT 1 EM6F
BD0411 - ..
BD0412 - Jack refers to the paper "Technologies for Cooperation," ref OF 1
BD0413 - 0001, which he submitted on 071113, ref SDS 42 FU6I, and cited in the
BD0414 - letter to Jack earlier this morning, per above. ref SDS 0 IK5H His
BD0415 - comments today on making a "literature review" may relate to a PhD
BD0416 - project, reported on 070126. ref SDS 37 NQ8H
BD0418 - [On 080127 the paper Jack submitted on Techologies of
BD0419 - Cooperation was cited in a letter to Morris on the role of
BD0420 - alphabet technology to lift civilization, ref SDS 46 OM4U,
BD0421 - and noting that Jack does not support this part of the
BD0422 - paper. ref SDS 46 OM5R
BD0424 - ..
BD0425 - A follow up letter to Jack, per below, ref SDS 0 UG3I, clarifies that
BD0426 - discussion of alphabet technology in the paper, Tools of Cooperation,
BD0427 - ref OF 1 0001, he submitted was only coincidental, ref DIT 2 318U,
BD0428 - rather than providing feedback to accomplish the action item from his
BD0429 - earlier letter on 011208, ref SDS 28 456G, and asked in the letter
BD0430 - earlier this morning, per above. ref SDS 0 IK5H Follow up letter
BD0431 - further provides a link to POIMS that explains "alphabet technology"
BD0432 - to "think, remember, and communicate." ref OF 9 3742
BD0434 - ..
BD0435 - Describing the alphabet as "too abstract" in his letter today, per
BD0436 - above, ref SDS 0 TX9S, conflicts with Jack's long familiarity and
BD0437 - expertise using the alphabet, suggesting that deeply ingrained
BD0438 - cultural forces are hard for people to examine with abstract
BD0439 - objectivity. The mechanics of literacy as set out in POIMS are never
BD0440 - presented to students, ref OF 5 ER3G; rather education focuses on
BD0441 - implementation, i.e., grammar, spelling, rhetoric.
BD0443 - ..
BD0444 - Jack indicates that discussion of alphabet technology in the paper he
BD0445 - subitted on "Technologies for Cooperation" was coincidental, rather
BD0446 - than following up plans to investigate this issue, as presented in
BD0447 - POIMS, per above, ref SDS 0 IK5H,
Evaluation SDS Personal Subject Map Nothing More Worthy Review Jack'
BO0401 - ..
BO0402 - Subject Map Important Part SDS Flexible Structure Intelligence Support
BO0404 - Follow up ref SDS 40 YN4H.
BO0406 - Jack's letter continues...
BO0408 - 3. In terms of what I think about what SDS is about, I plainly see
BO0409 - it as a personal subject map; nothing more, nothing less. That
BO0410 - you happen to wire subjects up in the particular fashion you
BO0411 - have chosen is, itself, worthy of review in my work. There are
BO0412 - certainly other ways to wire up the same subjects. In fact,
BO0413 - were you to craft a subject map platform instead of a
BO0414 - custom-built file-based system you are describing, you would
BO0415 - open the market to your product for many other purposes.
BO0417 - ..
BO0418 - "Personal map" is a description on Jack's website for Iris reviewed on
BO0419 - 060211. ref SDS 35 F43T
BO0421 - ..
BO0422 - Saying today that SDS is only a subject map demonstrates self-evident
BO0423 - benefits of better memory using SDS. On 070907 Jack advised that SDS
BO0424 - design is a mystery, ref SDS 39 GM9T, noted previously on 011003.
BO0425 - ref SDS 27 O74L
BO0427 - ..
BO0428 - Follow up letter to Jack, per below, ref SDS 0 UG3I, concurs that
BO0429 - "subject map" is an important part of SDS, ref DIT 2 FT4I, and citing
BO0430 - POIMS. ref OF 8 1110, and further explaining the importance of the
BO0431 - "plan, perform, report" intelligence cycle, also presented in POIMS.
BO0432 - ref OF 8 6649
BO0434 - ..
BO0435 - "Personal subject map" fairly expresses benefits of granular indexing
BO0436 - applied in SDS, as reported on 890523. ref SDS 1 A25H POIMS presents
BO0437 - requirements for managing personal and organizational integrated
BO0438 - memory and management. ref OF 5 6221 "Personal" subject map alone is
BO0439 - not enough for Knowledge Management to routinely save lives, time, and
BO0440 - money on the job, called out by Peter Drucker in his article reviewed
BO0441 - on 991025. ref SDS 3 0785 USACE reported on 970328 that SDS proved
BO0442 - effective for organizational intelligence support. ref DRP 4 6172 On
BO0443 - 971007 USACE reported ROI saving money using SDS is 10:1. ref DRP 5
BO0444 - 0001 This record indicates SDS integrates context management with
BO0445 - other capabilities summarized as people, process, time. ref OF 5 015M
BO0447 - ..
BO0448 - The follow up letter to Jack, per below, ref SDS 0 UG3I, says in
BO0449 - part...
BO0451 - ..
BO0452 - Then there is the baseline structure [of time] for
BO0453 - routinely organizing the record so everything is in the
BO0454 - right place at the right time, as Morris noted on 010425,
BO0455 - ref SDS 26 EP7F, and so that everything does not just get
BO0456 - filed "miscellaneous," noted in your letter on 070729.
BO0457 - ref SDS 38 HE6N These elements applied with complementary
BO0458 - functions make it possible to create connections called out
BO0459 - by Bush (1945) [reviewed on 960304, ref SDS 2 GX59], and
BO0460 - Engelbart (000405, ref SDS 9 2484), but which have proved
BO0461 - difficult to accomplish with other tools, discussed in the
BO0462 - "Tools for Cooperation" paper, reviewed on 071113,
BO0463 - ref SDS 42 C57M, and noted earlier by Murry Altheim on
BO0464 - 020820. ref SDS 30 6P8K, ref DIT 2 3164
BO0466 - ..
BO0467 - Jack'e letter on 001130 noted that SDS combines time and subjects, and
BO0468 - efficient usability makes the structure of knowledge useful to people.
BO0469 - ref SDS 22 H17O Experience shows complementarity of chronology,
BO0470 - context, and connection enable computers to improve productivity with
BO0471 - efficiencies of a paperless office, noted by Vannevar Bush in 1945
BO0472 - writing for Atlantic Monthly, and reviewed on 960304. ref SDS 2 GX59
BO0473 - See also POIMS, ref OF 8 8555, and NWO on complementarity. ref OF 14
BO0474 - Q07K
BO0476 - ..
BO0477 - The scope of SDS support can be seen from POIMS summarized in several
BO0478 - ways on 890523, ref SDS 1 YT8J, and cited more recently on 071220.
BO0479 - ref SDS 43 Z48H
BO0481 - ..
BO0482 - SDS context management is custom-built with a file-based system of
BO0483 - granular indexing and efficient usability for flexible structure,
BO0484 - also, explained on 890523. ref SDS 1 OS4H The Subject Index has
BO0485 - proven effective used daily for decades, explained recently on 071010.
BO0486 - ref SDS 41 01DF Peter Drucker proposed in an article published by
BO0487 - Atlantic Monthly and extending the Bush 1945 article by noting
BO0488 - technology must routinize support for cognitive science. ref SDS 3

D80408 - 4. You speak to some sense of charm in the "networks using open
D80409 - source development." I suspect that it frequently can be a
D80410 - mistake to think otherwise, to continually reinvent the wheel,

E00407 - 5. If you take a look at the apache solr project, you'll see a
E00408 - fully-indexed schema-based engine that serves both desktop and
