Doug spoke to the audience about historical and personal experiences,
recognizing several individuals and contributions. One compelling set
of sentences showed bootstrapping paradyms to augment evolutionary
knowledge solutions, while utilizing revolutionary changes.
Attention was brought to the idea of estimating the rate at which
knowledge is increasing and the related topic of accelerating returns.
OHS/DKR as a tool for distributed cooperative creating, recognizing,
developing, processing, and utilizing human and machine knowledge, is
needed to produce the needed accelerated returns to help us cope.
[Garold L. Johnson] Agreed. We are due to get totally swamped unless we
build better tools and better organizations to use them.
From related work I remain convinced that the basic tools we need to
provide a view of Doug's vision are there. Open Standards-track XML,
XSL, DOM, Java, ECMA Script (and related tools), along with standardized
approaches to developing km-oriented onologies and behaviors, provide
the platform. Doug's definitons of interactor interfaces and system
functionality provide the model. In this way OHS/DKR synergizes human
sytems/tool system co-evolution to exploit the opportunity created by
our our investment in computing.
[Garold L. Johnson] Certainly there are more and better tools available
today than when Doug built Augment! Of course, given that Augment was built,
we are trying to transcend it and so are trying to do more, but still, the
tools should give us some real help.
