This page provides a collection of references on
* Bootstrap Concepts
* Knowledge Representation
* Virtual Communities
This started out as one or two. But my searches quickly led
to a large number of papers available on the net. (It appears
we are not alone...) To that, I've added the references
we've seen in the Bootstrap discussions.
It would be really nice to get people's reactions to these.
That would help prioritize a reading list. I highly
recommend Jeff Conklin's paper on IBIS, for example. But
needless to say I haven't had time to peruse all the
references mentioned here.
Ron Goldman pointed to:
* An Overview of OHS with pointers to important papers:
* A list of links to other papers by Doug:
In particular, these papers of Doug's:
* Authorship provisions in Augment (1984)
* Collaboration Support Provisions in AUGMENT (1984)
* Toward High-Performance Organizations:
A Strategic Role for Groupware
Roy Roebuck suggested these:
* Roy's General Enterprise Dynamic Object - GEDO
An object-management system explored, along with other concepts
and designs at:
* GEDO applied to general DKR:
* ISO/IEC 13250:1999 TopicMap standard
* General object model
* Force's (DMTF) Common Information Model's (CIM) metaschema
* LDAP Object Model
* XML/XLL/XSL and XMI
* InfoMap Multicentric Information Map
* Artificial Brain
* A MindMan MindMap
* Interchange between knowledge tools/stores using XML.
* General Enterprise Management (GEM) tree underlying GEDO
A hierarchy for namespace and categorization management
Philip Gust suggested these document management systems:
Paul Fernhout unearthed these:
* Book: William Kent's Data & Reality (1978)
* Star/Rose (Kent's system)
* Collaborative Virtual Workspace, by MITRE.
* LXR: Starting points for Mozilla's use of LXR:
* LXR: An example web page for a source file with links:
* Slashdot discussion on Organizing Open Source:
Rod Welch gave us these:
* (Doug's) objectives for the Colloquium....
* POIMS: Augmenting human thinking, commonly called "intelligence"
gIBIS is a graphical implementation of the IBIS concept.
Here is background on IBIS:
Here is an abstract of Jeff Conklin's ACM paper:
This page has a link that appears to go the paper, rather
than the abstract, but it wasn't working when I followed it:
A nice diagram of gIBIS concepts:
A summary of IBIS that mentions gIBIS and points the major
difficulty with the system: "cognitive overhead":
"Integrating Voting Techniques into a Discussion Rationale
A paper on knowledge representation:
(it looks readable, although I haven't gone through it)
"Towards Knowledge Representation:
The State of Data and Processing Modeling Standards"
A potentially valuable paper on system called "Grassroots" that
unfortunately has had the line-endings squeezed out of it:
"Groupware for Developing Critical Discussion Skills"
"Supporting Development of Synchronous Collaboration Tools on
the Web with GroCo"
"Negotiating the Construction of Organizational Memory Using
Hypermedia Argument Spaces"
"Hypermedia Version Support for the Online Design Journal"
Hell of a title, but unfortunately the link didn't work:
