    Everybody probably knows this, but what is the difference between Wiki and
    Zwiki. I was worried I had not heard these words correctly, but looking at the
    DKR shows both are used.

    Has this been set out in the record?

    For a book, might take a look at Landauer's book "The Trouble with Computers"
    reviewed on 950710...

    Another candidate is Andy Grove's book "Only the Paranoid Survive" reviewed on

    Campbell's "Improbably Machine" yielded helpful ideas, reviewed on 900303...

    Another is "How the Mind Works" by Stephen Pinker, partially reviewed on

    Covey's "7 Habits..." has a lot that suggests what technology needs to do in
    order to augment human reasoning, reviewed on 921205....

    Drucker's several books reviewed beginning on 931130 explains the importance of
    analysis, the distinction between information and communication...
