The interview, I think, is comprehensive, and valuable. I would like to 
think that it is sufficiently comprehensive that it could become fodder for 
a dialog mapping exercise by this or any other group of individuals who 
want to take it apart and tease out of it the essential Engelbart that it 
conveys.    (02)

 From that dialog map, it is clear that some points which failed to get 
developed in the interview could then be developed further by way of 
additional dialog with Doug himself.    (03)

I particularly liked that automobile example of an abstraction. At the same 
time,  Hechenberger asked "So if we were to be in that kind of network, is 
it a hierarchical organization?", to which Doug replied "That's yet to be 
designed..." Indeed, imho, fodder for a great discussion, best done, I 
think, with the aid of a dialog map. Can a network be designed?    (04)

The Pierre Levy was, for me, a great read!    (07)
