Hi, I'm curious if you have thought about "import/export". I think
that's an important "bootstrapping" question. If it's not possible to
export all of the information, it seems dubious to work hard to
contribute to it. I think this is a major obstacle for using tools for
organizing thoughts. Therefore our laboratory, Minciu Sodas, is
developing an import/export standard MindSet,
http://www.ms.lt/mindset.html which makes explicit the type of
structuring used: Unordered Hierarchy, Nondirected Network, Directed
Network, Acyclic Network, Closed Sequence, Open Sequence. It's a
modeling language for modeling our thinking. I'm very interested in
comments on my draft. We have a working group

We'll now be organizing "public domain zones" focused on particular
topics. Because if the material is not collected in the public domain,
then again, it's useless because you can't use it freely, it's
impractical to get permissions. So we're going to promote this
combination: "public domain" and "import/export". I think this would be
related to Bootstrap.org so if it is, please let me know. Please write
to me at ms@ms.lt Thanks!
