    Another take on the "big picture" summary:

    The goal of the project is to create a man/machine symbiosis that
    augments human thinking in ways that increase our ability to
    collaboratively investigate and solve complex problems. Such problems
    include the impending energy crisis, as well as the prospect of
    "runaway" technological threats stemming from genetic engineering,
    biotechnology, or nanotechnology -- either intentionally or
    inadvertently. Less urgent, but equally complex problems targeted
    by the system include deliberations over fiscal policy, jurisprudence,
    and the design of future knowledge management systems. To support
    these goals, the system will support rapid authoring and interaction.
    It will be easily searched, promote unprecedented levels of information
    organization, evaluation, and reuse, and it will allow for the
    development of next-generation systems that perform some forms of
    automated reasoning. Above all, it's major goal is to assist us in
    dealing with very high levels of complexity, both individually and

    Take your development to new heights. Work with clients like Dell and
