0505 - Summary/Objective
050601 - Follow up ref SDS 15 0000, ref SDS 14 0000.
050603 - Discussed problem at ref SDS 14 line 32, which was partially and
050604 - temporarily resolved at ref SDS 15 line 53.
050606 - ..
050607 - Morris said that yesterday he did not attend the candidate meeting he
050608 - mentioned at ref SDS 14 line 28. He said that meeting is next
050609 - Wednesday, 940330. Yesterday he had a strategy meeting with other
050610 - candidates, to plan for the Wednesday event, and develop voter
050611 - recognition materials, e.g. photographs.
050613 - ..
050614 - I will call him tomorrow to schedule another date for doing this
050615 - work, hopefully next week.
050617 - Explained my idea to bring my CPU #3 to his office so he can just
050618 - sit down and work on this matter directly, without having to fuss
050619 - with it over the modem, since we always have problems with this.
050620 - He is open to this idea.

060502 - Memory Management New Feature to Reduce Fragmented Memory
060504 - Follow up ref SDS 10 C48N, ref SDS 8 FI6J.
060506 - I explained the need for improving recovery after memory fragments
060507 - during continuous usage, as we discussed on 931023, ref SDS 8 FI6J,
060508 - especially since 940325 when I changed the way we update archived SDS
060509 - records that relies more heavily on use of RAM. ref SDS 17 X689
060514 - ..
0608 - Ideas
060901 - One idea is to create a function that does this each time we use F2,
060902 - so if RAM is only slightly out of order, the routine can recover it
060903 - quickly the way Norton can compress a disk more quickly, if there is
060904 - only a slight amount of data that has to be moved.
060906 - Morris was unsure how well this can can be implemented.
060909 - ..
060910 - Morris feels the easiest way to recover RAM is to write the data to
060911 - the disk and then read it back. I asked about the "dose" command
060912 - that seems to do this already. He indicated that code is quite a bit
060913 - different from what he has in mind.
060915 - We might like to write to a RAM disk with some special code, so
060916 - the write and read operation can be done more quickly.

191402 - Religion Means to Link Back to Original Sources Like Legal Citations
191403 - Legal Citations Reflect Religion Supported by SDS to Improve Memory
191405 - Discussed recent discovery that religion means "linking back to
191406 - original understandings," ref SDS 12 line 35.
191408 - Morris said his understanding about "religion" meaning to "link
191409 - back" is that it supports a claim by the Catholic Church to a
191410 - "link back" to the desciple Peter, which Catholics feel
191411 - establishes Catholocism as the dominate voice of Christianity.
191413 - ..
191414 - I mentioned our findings from research in several dictionaries,
191415 - per ref SDS 12 line 51, which do not mention Morris' understanding.
191418 - ..
191419 - We discussed ideas that have been incorporated into the paper for PMI
191420 - on 940324. ref SDS 16 0001
191422 - ..
191423 - Morris said citations are misused in religious text, and elsewhere and
191424 - so do not comprise a sound basis for assisting people to understand
191425 - and accurately remember original meaning.

781402 - Feedback Refines Accuracy Sometimes Causes People to Get Mad
781403 - People Resist Correcting Recollections Get Mad Resolving Conflicts
781404 - Internal Management Wants Intelligence Only for External Management
781406 - Morris explained having encountered strong, emotional resistance from
781407 - colleagues when he has offered feedback to refresh recollections on
781408 - conflicting understandings from calls, meetings, and documents. Some
781409 - people get very angry when records are offered that indicate the basis
781410 - of action was different from what they remember or can decifer from
781411 - their notes. He feels that angry, abusive response is not very
781412 - pleasant, and so discourages trying to understand root causes to
781413 - resolve conflict and avoid future problems.
781415 - [On 960326 Morris resisted reviewing the record to prepare for a
781416 - productive meeting. ref SDS 23 DP44
781418 - ..
781419 - [On 980405 Bill DeHart had similar experience at PG&E; people
781420 - object to accountability for good management. ref SDS 30 1236
781422 - ..
781423 - This experience reflects analysis in the New World Order... where
781424 - people don't have enough time to think, and so lash out to avoid the
781425 - burden of resolving conflict, which is an essential responsiblity of
781426 - leadership ref OF 6 2670, under Truman's dictum...
781428 - If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen!
781430 - ..
781431 - [On 990527 Morris described strong cultural resistance to
781432 - improving management, ref SDS 32 1233, the boss at Chips and
781433 - later at Intel doesn't listen when SDS is proposed to save
781434 - time and money. ref SDS 32 074D
781436 - ..
781437 - Morris feels that, since people get mad when they get information that
781438 - conflicts with their memory from days, weeks and years earlier, then
781439 - keeping an accurate record is not useful for improving the work with
781440 - accurate understandings.
781442 - ..
781443 - Morris further indicated this evening that accurate records are not
781444 - helpful to resolve legal disputes, because a personal diary or journal
781445 - would be considered biased, and so not reliable evidence in court. He
781446 - feels SDS records are biased and not accurate, so there is no point in
781447 - using SDS to improve the work.
781449 - ..
781450 - On 911130 Judge Mosk, an associate justice on the California Supreme
781451 - Court, indicated that a contemporaneous record, regularly maintained
781452 - and distributed for people to submit feedback with corrections and
781453 - additions is helpful for fact finding by understanding causation based
781454 - on the chronology of events. ref SDS 4 5006
781456 - ..
781457 - While reasoning that an accurate record should be avoided because
781458 - people get mad when information conflicts with momentary memory and
781459 - assumption is supported by the record, there seems to be a strong
781460 - cultural hope that accuracy is not required for internal management,
781461 - but is useful for external management, as discussed on 890809.
781462 - ref SDS 2 0880 This feeds biological drives to go from meeting to
781463 - meeting, and have endless calls working from memory and assumption,
781464 - without expending any effort to capture the record nor to check the
781465 - record.
781467 - [On 950204 Morris related advice from a professional seminar
781468 - aligns with SDS process of capturing organizational memory
781469 - for manaing the work; he felt this practice is unnecessary
781470 - overkill. ref SDS 19 5932
781472 - ..
781473 - [On 950228 Morris frustrated because meetings waste endless
781474 - hours arguing about who said what at the last meeting, which
781475 - stops productivity on everything. ref SDS 20 1994
781477 - ..
781478 - [On 951103 Morris asks how to handle conflicting records.
781479 - ref SDS 22 9066
781481 - ..
781482 - [On 961017 people get mad when their memeory conflicts with
781483 - the record. ref SDS 26 5832
781485 - ..
781486 - [On 961017 people get mad anyway when failure occurs causing
781487 - loss, conflict, crisis and calamity. ref SDS 26 Y35O
781489 - ..
781490 - [On 970123 Intel uses constructive confrontation methods to
781491 - resolve differences when people remember events differently
781492 - and there is not an accurate record available. ref SDS 27
781493 - 1111

AN1404 - Dates Hard to Remember; SDS Fast Easy to Remember Chronology Causation
AN1406 - Morris feels SDS support for common storage and precision access to
AN1407 - quickly create and open links is a useful way to avoid mistakes by
AN1408 - enabling people to build shared memory, and to find critical details
AN1409 - when needed. These features flow from the SDS design for Knowledge
AN1410 - Space shown in the NWO for the scope of intelligence support.
AN1411 - ref OF 6 PX6J
AN1413 - [On 960406 Morris reported popular information technologies do not
AN1414 - support precision access, so it is hard to find information.
AN1415 - ref SDS 24 4249
AN1417 - ..
AN1418 - [On 990721 Morris suggests explaining benefits using SDS for
AN1419 - better memory. ref SDS 33 MG3L
AN1421 - ..
AN1422 - [On 010425 Morris explained SDS is a utopia compared to other
AN1423 - technologies, because everything is in the right place at the
AN1424 - right time. ref SDS 36 EP7F
AN1426 - ..
AN1427 - [On 020110 Morris asked how SDS enables people to remember dates
AN1428 - so many accurately. ref SDS 38 I84G
AN1430 - ..
AN1431 - Morris explained that remembering dates is hard and frustrating. As
AN1432 - time passes, people get confused about chronology. Memory of complex
AN1433 - events fades and is hard to keep in order; things gets mixed up in the
AN1434 - mind. This leads to conflict and argument in conversation during
AN1435 - meetings and calls because everybody remembers things differently.
AN1436 - People claims their files say this or that, but nobody has time to
AN1437 - check, because looking through the files takes a lot of time that is
AN1438 - very frustrating. Morris feels that connecting things in the record
AN1439 - to accurately remember the sequence of cause and effect is a
AN1440 - self-evident benefit for most people, as related in POIMS. ref OF 5
AN1441 - G54N
AN1443 - [On 961017 meeting at USACE reported people remember things
AN1444 - differently; some people get mad when records report events that
AN1445 - differ from personal memory.
AN1447 - ..
AN1448 - [On 980307 Andy Grove, CEO of Intel, reports mental maps are
AN1449 - awfully forgiving of ambibuity, ref SDS 29 3668, and so writes
AN1450 - copious notes to remember accurately. ref SDS 29 3101
AN1452 - ..
AN1453 - [On 030627 Gary Johnson noted that automatic links in SDS are
AN1454 - helpful. ref SDS 40 0001
AN1456 - ..
AN1457 - An example is concern on 921127 that little inconsequential details
AN1458 - later explode into major problems because nobody can remember the
AN1459 - context of correlations with prior history. ref SDS 6 0674 Morris
AN1460 - noted SDS links help solve this problem by enabling fast access to
AN1461 - contextually relevant history, which reveals both prior and subsequent
AN1462 - events that, in turn, disclose related issues, using the SDS design
AN1463 - for flexible and organic structures, reviewed on 890523. ref SDS 1
AN1464 - P13O This improves the accuracy by several ordrs of magnitude of
AN1465 - relying on remembering only the gist of information, based on
AN1466 - Campbell's book reviewed on 900303. ref SDS 3 6689
AN1468 - [On 940609 Henry Kissinger worries daily management is an Alice in
AN1469 - Wonderland of continual bumbling because people do not invest time
AN1470 - for analysis to remember accurately. ref SDS 18 4238
AN1472 - ..
AN1473 - [On 950204 Morris attended a seminar that recommended methods
AN1474 - supported by SDS for proactive management to avoid mistakes.
AN1475 - ref SDS 19 GE4J
AN1477 - ..
AN1478 - [On 950204 SDS enables Communication Metrics to accurately
AN1479 - remember and align small details over time. ref SDS 19 5468
AN1481 - ..
AN1482 - [On 950228 Morris explained that a lot time is wasted in meetings
AN1483 - arguing about who said things at prior meetings, because remembers
AN1484 - things differently. ref SDS 20 1994
AN1486 - ..
AN1487 - [On 950303 Morris explained application of SDS was evident when
AN1488 - some people in his company attended a meeting in Paris and later a
AN1489 - legal dispute arose because nobody could remember what was
AN1490 - discussed and agreed. ref SDS 21 3333
AN1492 - ..
AN1493 - [On 960518 fragile memory causes meaning drift that makes "truth"
AN1494 - a moving target that causes endless mistakes, i.e., bumbling.
AN1495 - ref SDS 25 3734
AN1497 - ..
AN1498 - [On 970707 USAFIT entropic model posits that management large
AN1499 - projects degrades toward failure, ref SDS 28 628M, because
AN1500 - everybody is talking and nobody is listening. ref SDS 28 0108
AN1502 - ..
AN1503 - [On 990303 human memory inherently recodes information to aid
AN1504 - short-term memory by paraphrasing, which in turn causes meaning
AN1505 - drift that reduces long-term memory. ref SDS 31 2838
AN1507 - ..
AN1508 - [On 991014 Morris feels responsibility for knowledge imparted by
AN1509 - links is too big a burden. ref SDS 34 3066
AN1511 - ..
AN1512 - [On 000927 research indicates remembering the gist of information
AN1513 - is accurate about 5% - 10% of the time. ref SDS 35 DX9F
AN1515 - ..
AN1516 - [On 010425 Morris found using SDS is a utopia compared to other
AN1517 - methods because everything is in the right place at the right
AN1518 - time. ref SDS 36 EP7F
AN1520 - ..
AN1521 - [On 010924 Morris commented that SDS improves mangement better
AN1522 - than other methods, ref SDS 37 NK4J, and noted that nobody uses
AN1523 - other software like SDS for adding intelligence to daily working
AN1524 - information. ref SDS 37 XT5F
AN1526 - ..
AN1527 - Morris feels that making SDS a marketing success requires showing that
AN1528 - SDS makes creating and using links fast and easy.
AN1530 - ..
AN1531 - [On 990721 Morris recommends marketing SDS for a memory aid.
AN1532 - ref SDS 33 0001
AN1534 - ..
AN1535 - [On 020923 Morris supports using links judicially like following
AN1536 - footnotes and references in a biblography. ref SDS 39 XL4F
