1305 - Summary/Objective
130601 - Follow up work at ref SDS 17 line 96.
130603 - Bill said Bob Denmark attended the meeting Saturday. He is working
130604 - on getting a facility for the Feb event.
130606 - There does not seem to be a theme. Someone is working on getting
130607 - speakers. It was unclear whether prior work on this issue is being
130608 - used. There was no discussion about coordinating the Feb event with
130609 - the Asilomar event.
130611 - Bill indicated he would support the Asilimar event, but he could not
130612 - help on the Feb event.

Failed Communications, Anger, Frustrations
1907 - Summary/Objective
190801 - July, Asilomar Event
190803 - Bill said he has not been given the go ahead to handle Asilomar. Ahmet
190804 - is focused on the Feb event. Bill is concerned that action needs to
190805 - be underway now to make Asilomar successful. It is even more critical
190806 - since evidently the PMI national board is attending, ref SDS 17 line
190807 - 133.
190809 - I suggested he write a letter to Ahmet and indicate experience on
190810 - prior Asilimar events shows best results have proven to occur when
190811 - early planning is done. Recommend appointment of a project team so a
190812 - plan be prepared for submission to the board.
190814 - Bill said Ahmet has evidently made another submission to the Board,
190815 - but it is even less substantive than the one made at the 950612
190816 - meeting, ref SDS 1 line 294.
190820 - Speaker - Morris Jones; Psychologist
190822 - The discussion with Morris this evening on using a psychologist to
190823 - improve communications shows the importance and urgency of finding a
190824 - solution to the Information Highway ref SDS 19 line 115 and ref SDS 19
190825 - line 185.
190827 - Depending on how it is presented, this could be a good aspect of the
190828 - program. We need to further investigation to see if this is an
190829 - emerging trend. I suspect it is. Chips probably heard someone else
190830 - has hired a psychologist.
190832 - Actually, I got a call from a psychologist the other day who is
190833 - providing stress management support for firms in the financial
190834 - district, ref SDS 18 line 164. I will follow up with him on this.
190836 - [See follow up letter to psychologist at ref SDS 20 line 67.]
SDS Marketing, Sales, Locate Decision Maker
Pacific Bell, Project Management Program
2105 - Summary/Objective
210601 - Bill said the speaker for the 951026 PMI dinner meeting was a PM rep
210602 - from Pac Bell. She said Pac Bell will spend $16B by the end of the
210603 - century, which is just 5 years, to upgrade its California
210604 - infrastructure.
210606 - Kathy Anderson
210607 - Program Director
210608 - Advanced Communications Network
210609 - Broadband Deployment
210610 - Pacific Bell
210612 - This is consistent with Frank's comments to PMI at ref SDS 9 line 99.
210614 - The Pac Bell rep said she has just completed a $20M project, and plans
210615 - to use different procedures for her next project.
210617 - Bill said she did not mention that she works to Frank, so possibly
210618 - this is a different part of the company. Frank seems to be busy at
210619 - this time since he has not followed up our initiatives, ref SDS 15
210620 - line 54. I suggested we consider contacting her about a meeting on
210621 - Communication Metrics. Bill thinks she is a member of PMI.
210623 - [See follow up at ref SDS 21 line 58.]
