2904 - Summary/Objective
290501 - Follow up ref SDS 70 0000. ref SDS 30 0000.
290503 - Fry's configured c16 64-bit computer to run the Microsoft XP 32-bit
290504 - operating system. ref SDS 0 6V3F This may extend the life-cycle for
290505 - the current 16-bit version of SDS another 10 - 30 years, providing
290506 - time for upgrading SDS to 64-bit, and for the market to grow for
290507 - Knowledge Mangement tools. ref SDS 0 4L9F SDS "dodged a bullet" by
290508 - avoiding the Engelbart Dilemma of becoming extinct before there was
290509 - enough time for transformation from inforamtion to a culture of
290510 - knowledge. ref SDS 0 XK8H Upgrading 64-bit technology to increase
290511 - productivity by running SDS required a major effort to organize
290512 - multiple stakeholders. ref SDS 0 PX6N This investment was justified
290513 - by saving lives, time, and money using SDS. ref SDS 0 PY7F
290515 - [On 090715 2146 configured c16 for using SDS to perform
290516 - Communication Metrics for Knowledge Management, and
290517 - intelligence support, ref SDS 70 0001; evaluation shows
290518 - significant improvement in productivity. ref SDS 70 2871
290520 - ..
290521 - [On 090729 1700 review shows Ryan's work at Fry's stands out
290522 - for exceptional merit. ref SDS 77 HX5K
290524 - ..
290525 - [On 090906 1313 commend Fry's for outstanding work on c16, with
290526 - letter to Randy Fry using Direct Connect, ref SDS 79 VG5J, and
290527 - cite Ryan, Petrus, Joe, and Lan. ref SDS 79 ZW4N

2908 - Progress
290901 - Objectives C16 Facilitate SDS 16-bit Upgrade for 64-bit Computers
290902 - SDS 16-bit Applicaion Run on 64-bit Computers with Windows XP 32-bit
290905 - Work over the past 2 months (see case study below, ref SDS 0 PX6N),
290906 - and completed today at Fry's configuring c16 with the Microsoft
290907 - Windows XP 32-bit operating system, reported on 090715 1651,
290908 - ref SDS 69 KN6M, upgraded 64-bit computer technology to run SDS 16-bit
290909 - software technology for doing Knowledge Management, also reported on
290910 - 090715 1651. ref SDS 69 EZ5K Testing shows SDS runs much better on
290911 - the HP HDX 18t quad-processor 64-bit computer than on "high-end"
290912 - Pentium single processor computers, reported in another record today
290913 - on 090715 2146. ref SDS 70 FL4N
290915 - [On 101115 2018 c17 desktop configured for SDS productivity
290916 - in much less time applying experience solving problems
290917 - setting up c16. ref SDS 80 2871
290919 - ..
290920 - Advantages of SDS for "working intelligently" to save lives, time, and
290921 - money, explained in POIMS, ref OF 3 1X6G, justifies investing time and
290922 - money to extend using SDS, shown in the case study below. ref SDS 0
290923 - PY7F
290925 - ..
290926 - Success today running SDS 16-bit software on 64-bit computers marks
290927 - another watershed in the 30 year history of SDS, reported on 000723
290928 - 1414. ref SDS 16 X15N It may add 10 to 20 years for civilization to
290929 - catch up with the design using the irreversability of time, explained
290930 - in NWO, ref OF 12 I38N, and which drives the "power of knowledge" from
290931 - adding "intelligence" to information, also explained in NWO.
290932 - ref OF 12 I38N The SDS design applies the common accounting practice
290933 - of an "audit trail," more formally described in management theory as
290934 - "traceability to original sources," reviewed on 950721 1349.
290935 - ref SDS 1 1740 Combining time and context through connections of
290936 - cause and effect implements the "locality principle," also, explained
290937 - in NWO. ref OF 12 I38N
290939 - ..
290940 - Until today, SDS was on a path to extinction, as occurred with
290941 - Engelbart's tools developed in the 1960s, explained below. ref SDS 0
290942 - XK8H Widespread expert opinion in the literature and voiced by
290943 - technology professionals indicated 16-bit software, like SDS, cannot
290944 - run on newer 64-bit technology that may be the new foundation of
290945 - computer design for the next 10 - 20 years.
290947 - ..
290948 - SDS risk of extinction increased from failed efforts to buy 64-bit
290949 - computers configured to run 16-bit software, reported on 080611 0827.
290950 - ref SDS 41 K54K Review found that despite intense demand for better
290951 - productivity to lift the economy from recession manufacturers for new
290952 - 64-bit computers refuse support for 16-bit line-of-business software
290953 - that has evolved for 30 years to improve productivity, reported on
290954 - 080630 1611. ref SDS 42 JS5F Earlier on 080531 testing showed SDS
290955 - will not run on 64-bit computers with Microsoft Vista. An error
290956 - message said the computer cannot run 16-bit applications. ref SDS 40
290957 - HF9J At that time, Morris explained that Intel made a mistake
290958 - designing 64-bit techology that allocated memory for 32-bit legacy
290959 - applications, but forgot to allocate memory for 16-bit software.
290960 - ref SDS 40 TH51
290962 - ..
290963 - Seems strange that both AMD and Intel made the same mistake??
290965 - ..
290966 - Until today, limitations of 64-bit computers excluding 16-bit software
290967 - indicated the only path for continuing SDS would be upgrading 16-bit
290968 - to a 64-bit design. Upgrading SDS 16-bit architecture, however, has
290969 - proven difficult the past 20 years, reported in a case study on
290970 - 070907. ref SDS 36 6U7O SDS is hard to upgrade becasue the design has
290971 - been continually refined over 30 years to solve complex challenges
290972 - adding "intelligence" to convert information into the power of
290973 - knowledge, explained in POIMS. ref OF 3 1X6G Very few people focus on
290974 - the architecture of human thought, explained in POIMS. ref OF 3 0367
290975 - Synergy between using and developing SDS has been effective designing
290976 - SDS, reported on 010924 0709, ref SDS 24 NK4J, but people resist using
290977 - technology to leverage intelligence for thinking, remembering and
290978 - communicating, explained in POIMS. ref OF 7 3742 Without synergy
290979 - between using and developing SDS, problems creating tools effective
290980 - for Knowledge Management have not been solved.
290982 - ..
290983 - On 000324 SRI reported many organizations invested heavily to develop
290984 - Knowledge Management, and failed. ref SDS 8 4877 This report was
290985 - supported by case study on 070126. ref SDS 33 QH8L
290987 - ..
290988 - SRI tried to develop Windows support for Knowledge Management using
290989 - 32-bit technology with the OHS/DKR project in 2000. On 000504 Jack
290990 - Park reported the team of expert software engineers at SRI were
290991 - ignoring the SDS design. ref SDS 11 XD5M After 6 months of extensive
290992 - research, SRI discovered there wasn't enough knowledge to develop
290993 - computer tools for Knowledge Management, reported on 000615 1600.
290994 - ref SDS 13 6271 Jack Park reported again to the SRI team that even
290995 - after months of exposure experts could not understand Knowledge
290996 - Management, ref SDS 20 0S8L, further presented in case study on
290997 - 071220. ref SDS 38 ST6J
290999 - ..
291000 - Similarly, IBM invested heavily to devlop Knowledege Management, and
291001 - gave up on 001130, ref SDS 22 F26K SRI tried again with the CALO
291002 - project, reviewed on 040221. ref SDS 29 5U6J SRI had four (4) people
291003 - familiar with SDS work product, Doug Engelbart, Pat Lincoln, Jack
291004 - Park, and Adam Cheyer. After 5 years and with substantial financial
291005 - aid from the government, SRI gave up on CALO, reported on 090313.
291006 - ref SDS 46 5P6G Jack Park helped SRI release IRIS to support
291007 - Knowledge Management, as part of the CALO project, reported on 060211.
291008 - ref SDS 32 0001 Earlier, Jack disclosed that the Iris program is
291009 - unsuable, reported on 060129 ref SDS 31 7A4F
291011 - ..
291012 - Background on difficulty getting people to help develop the SDS design
291013 - was reviewed on 040221. ref SDS 29 AB6O Difficulty designing
291014 - technology for Knowledge Management shown in case study on 070126.
291015 - ref SDS 33 QH8L, supports review on 000425 showing that the design for
291016 - Knowledge Management is a secret of SDS. ref SDS 10 0480 Ignorance,
291017 - fear, and denial cited on 070126, ref SDS 33 JH4U, drive resistance to
291018 - support SDS development, reported on 001126. ref SDS 21 QW8I Case
291019 - study on 071220 shows frustrations people experience who grasp the
291020 - power of SDS and are unable to help others see this potential to
291021 - enlist engineering support for technology development. ref SDS 38 M53N
291023 - ..
291024 - These dynamics reduce the field of contributors on SDS to only one (1)
291025 - engineer. Reliance on a single person makes software development
291026 - tenuous. Health, age, and proclivities of daily life affect progress,
291027 - including evolving interests and priorities. After starting on
291028 - 070907, by 080531 Morris was discouraged about difficulty developing a
291029 - Windows application for SDS. ref SDS 40 WK3J On 081007 Morris had
291030 - worked for a year, and completed less than 10% of SDS capability.
291031 - ref SDS 43 XV9F
291033 - ..
291034 - On 081104 Morris switched and began work to upgrade Medit that runs
291035 - SDS through macro code developed the past 30 years, rather than
291036 - attempt to develop the SDS application. ref SDS 44 2W6I He used the
291037 - Java development platform, rather than update the assembly language
291038 - code for Medit from 16-bit to 32-bit or 64-bit, which conflicts with
291039 - planning on 070907 1000. ref SDS 36 V35O Java has advantages
291040 - providing a more robust environment for SDS. There are risks however
291041 - that de novo development even of Medit will fail, explained on 081104.
291042 - ref SDS 44 VO3P Risks of failure trying to avoid assembly language
291043 - development were confirmed with independent research on 081202 2011.
291044 - ref SDS 45 8L40
291046 - ..
291047 - Morris has made good progress the past 10 months, but there is still a
291048 - lot of work to get the new version of Medit to a point of testing the
291049 - SDS application, as discussed above. ref SDS 0 ZQ5F This record
291050 - indicates that upgrading SDS to a 64-bit application remains highly
291051 - speculative. At current rates of work, Medit might be available to
291052 - begin implementing SDS by the end of this year. Even if the Java
291053 - version of Medit is "completed" it may have so many compromises that
291054 - usng the program for SDS is not effective, without years of
291055 - refinement. At a minimum, it will take another 6 months to a year of
291056 - development, before SDS can be performed with the Java platform. On
291057 - the plus side, if this all works, in 2 - 4 years there will be a more
291058 - flexible environment for integrating SDS with other tools. SDS will
291059 - be much easier to configure for other users. Expanded use will expand
291060 - the pool of engineers who grasp the design parameters, and so are
291061 - capabile of creating the next generation of SDS as a Windows
291062 - application.
291064 - ..
291065 - Getting SDS to run on 64-bit computers today significantly expands the
291066 - window of opportunity for SDS to evolve with the natural growth of the
291067 - computer industry. Moreover, at the moment, even if the SDS sowtware
291068 - upgrade fails, SDS is no longer at risk of immenant extinction.
291071 - ..
291072 - Engelbart Dilemma Technology Obsolesence Market Forces Never Take Hold
291074 - Doug Englebart faced these challenges at SRI 50 years ago in the
291075 - middle of the 20th century, reviewed previously on 000711 1430.
291076 - ref SDS 14 1056 At the end of the 1960s, Doug achieved initial
291077 - success using computers to aid "thinking" for tasks to create,
291078 - organize, store, retrieve, and convey information for collaboration,
291079 - reviewed on 991222. ref SDS 7 UN3J Doug was unable to continue using
291080 - and refining his tools because invention of the microprocessor in the
291081 - 1970s ushered in personal computers, reviewed on 960304. ref SDS 2
291082 - 666F
291084 - ..
291085 - This new personal computer market focused on empowering people to
291086 - produce documents with the quality of professional publications, and
291087 - on playing games for entertainment, rather than support Doug's vision
291088 - using the power of computers to leverage the power of knowledge that
291089 - improves document content, i.e., thinking, reported on 960509,
291090 - ref SDS 4 3502, and citing telecon on 960507. ref SDS 3 1111 Goals
291091 - for better tools to play games was presented again at Intel on 970603.
291092 - ref SDS 5 4486 Value proposition focusing on appearance of documents
291093 - rather than substance reflects requirements to sell products that pay
291094 - the bills, and that "pretty things" are easier to sell at a low price
291095 - to a broad market, cited in POIMS. ref OF 5 0959
291097 - ..
291098 - These market forces drove technology in the 1980s to end support for
291099 - tools Doug developed in the 1960s, reported on 001027. ref SDS 19 B76F
291100 - He was unable to "sell" people on investing time and money to upgrade
291101 - his "productivity" tools, because "augmenting intelligence" to save
291102 - lives, time, and money seemed funny, foreign, and unnecessary
291103 - overkill, shown by review at Intel on 990713, ref SDS 6 2150, and
291104 - later on 001126 by paradoxical comments from the OHS/DKR group meeting
291105 - under Doug's sponsorship at SRI with the stated aim of advancing
291106 - Doug's agenda. ref SDS 21 325L
291108 - ..
291109 - Twenty (20) years later, in the year 2000, Doug got another chance.
291110 - He assembled an ad hoc team at SRI to implement his ideas for computer
291111 - software that augments intelligence and aids collaboration, which Doug
291112 - calls "collective IQ" (see review on 991222 1045. ref SDS 7 KI49 The
291113 - first step for the SRI project in 2000 was to develop modern tools to
291114 - run his original "augment NLS" software on modern computer technology,
291115 - reported on 000324, ref SDS 8 0001, and under the auspicies of
291116 - "Bootstrap," reviewed on 991222. ref SDS 7 3495 by SRI. This effort
291117 - eventually failed. Doug and a colleague at SRI, Pat Lincoln, made
291118 - numerous trips to Washington DC making proposals for funding from
291119 - various government grant programs, reported on 000601 1600.
291120 - ref SDS 12 4877, further on 000711 1430, reporting response to funding
291121 - requests has been slow, ref SDS 14 0512; and later on 000718 0715.
291122 - ref SDS 15 PI4L On 001017 funding was expected from NIH. ref SDS 17
291123 - 4877 This was delayed by changes in administration on 010605 1500.
291124 - ref SDS 23 4877
291126 - ..
291127 - Pat related on 030527 that NIH cancelled plans to fund an SRI project
291128 - in 2001 with $30M to implement Doug's ideas. NIH decided the project
291129 - was unnecessary because in 2001 Microsoft presented to NIH that in
291130 - 2002 Microsoft would be selling Sharepoint software that improves
291131 - collaboration for daily management. ref SDS 28 XD90 Even though
291132 - Sharepoint does not improve management, reviewed on 020822 1404,
291133 - ref SDS 27 H2YS, people are willing to buy tools from Microsoft that
291134 - don't improve management, because false faith in Microsoft reflects
291135 - desire for belief in God. In the 1990s Microsoft replaced IBM as the
291136 - source of faith in the God of technology.
291138 - ..
291139 - In the past 5 years, Doug and SRI were awarded a government grant from
291140 - NSF to create a "hyperscope" tool, reported on 070904, ref SDS 35
291141 - DV5R, and previously explained in the OHS/DKR launch plan that Doug
291142 - issued on 001025. ref SDS 18 A5U6
291144 - ..
291145 - As of today, Hyperscope is explained on the Internet at...
291147 - http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/douglas_engelbart_hyperscope.php
291149 - ...based on tech legend Douglas Engelbart's 1968 NLS/Augment
291150 - (oNLine System). Engelbart and team have been working on
291151 - Hyperscope since March this year, in a project funded by the
291152 - National Science Foundation. Its aim is to rebuild portions of
291153 - Douglas Engelbart's NLS system on the web, using current Web
291154 - technologies such as AJAX and DHTML.
291156 - ..
291157 - HyperScope is described as "a high-performance thought processor
291158 - that enables you to navigate, view, and link to documents in
291159 - sophisticated ways." This is seen as the first (renewed) step
291160 - towards Doug Engelbart's larger vision for an Open Hyperdocument
291161 - System - only this time round it'll be based on Web technologies.
291163 - ..
291164 - One of Doug's papers published in 1972, explains requirements for
291165 - technology to improve daily management, reviewed on 000327.
291166 - ref SDS 9 3971
291168 - ..
291169 - There is no record showing daily work product created and applied with
291170 - the Hyperscope.
291172 - ..
291173 - Without the solution for SDS reported today, per above, ref SDS 0
291174 - 6V3F, SDS would most likely devolve into a frustrating series of
291175 - decades chasing an elusive dream. Thanks to support from Microsoft,
291176 - HP, and especially Fry's, reported in another record today,
291177 - ref SDS 70 2871, the Engelbart Dilemma has been avoided. Not only can
291178 - SDS continue to save lives, time, and money on modern computers for
291179 - next 5 - 20 years, productivity is greatly increased with faster
291180 - processing, further reported in another record today on 090715 2146.
291181 - ref SDS 70 TI6J
291183 - ..
291184 - Continued coordination illustrated in this case, gives civilization
291185 - continued opportunity to advance from information to a culture of
291186 - knowledge (sometimes called a "paperless office"), as set out in
291187 - POIMS. ref OF 4 J26O, and as illustrated by this record.
