shows screenshots with a bit of verbiage about running an IBIS discussion
with Nexist. Howard Liu and I are preparing Nexist to go into a high
school classroom in September, specifically to allow students to conduct
moderated discussions, say, about global warming, and so forth. Our goal:
exercise Nexist in a real-world situation for the first time. What we plan
to learn: whatever we can. Jeff Conklin's upcoming Dialog Mapping
workshop, I think, will help in my planning for the school room exercise.
Will that enhance education? Well, I think so, as discussed in my paper
Bringing Knowledge Technologies to the Classroom, a pdf of which is also at
the Nexist site.
Today, I also put the very latest version of Nexist itself at the same
site, and a second download of the required jar files. Now, everything you
need to play with Nexist is readily available. Your only issue will be to
have a late model Java (I built it on jdk1.3) installed, and adjust the
classpath notations in the batch files to suit (sorry, I can't say anything
