What a gem. Burton's paper is on the web. It's the top google hit--
The second hit: http://moo.twu.edu:7000/1020/
<http://moo.twu.edu:7000/1020/> however points to it plus a couple of
others. The links in Burton's paper will keep you busy for many moons.
KMI is a great web site for exploration --
<http://kmi.open.ac.uk/projects/currentprojects.html> . Discussion there
includes ScholOnto that I mentioned here a while back. Visit
as well; that's the homesite of the forum I referenced earlier.
For the overwhelmed, there's always Prozac!

This site (KMI) certainly fascinates me. We see here an integration of
knowledge management and learning along the full gamut of R&D and
application. One wonders how the work of Bootstrap volunteeras and SRI may
fit in or relate to all this. There seems to be a lot of experience and
momentum there. The D3E format for publishing on the Internet does seem a
bit bewildering at first sight, but still seems to be worth considering. (If
only I could cope with the explosion of things to be comprehended.)
Have you also seen "The Rhetoric of a Rhetoric Website: Inquiry, Pedagogy,
and Scholarship" by Gideon O. Burton?
Quoting from its abstract: "In order to serve the multiple purposes of
inquiry, pedagogy, and scholarship, certain basic rhetorical concepts must
be closely observed within the web environment, including arrangement and
delivery organization and presentation of information), and audience
(addressing both specialized and general audiences imultaneously). This
requires a familiarity with those features of web design, access, and
promotion that can enhance or an detract from each of these purposes.
Attending to those rhetorical principles and features can lead to the most
roductive exposure of web information, can improve the usefulness of web
information for teaching purposes, and can
promote the professional validation of scholarly web publication. Research,
teaching, and scholarship should have a oductive and dynamic
inter-relationship, and the creation of an academic website can
significantly aid that relationship if the properties of this medium are
understood and respected "
The addressing both specialized and general audiences simultaneously is
precisely what we are struggling with on this website. This in addition to
a. Augmentation tools (computers) and what they are intended to augment
b. Specific tool development (i.q. OHS) and its application to complex,
urgent societal problems on a world scale.
I am overwhelmed to the point of impotency by the impossibly huge
smorgasbord of things to evaluate and apply (and often wish that more agile
minds would take the Bootstrap webmaster's job over from me). Maybe the work
at the Open University's Knowledge Media Institute offers a way out. Sigh.

d3e appears to be available for non-profits, like bootstrap.org (I think).
It might be worth installing a copy.
