Further to my previous reply:
1. The reason that precipitated my emphasis on the correlation with Bloom's
Taxonomy is that Jack's jpOHS is being readied for application in an educational
setting. But, please, bear in mind that I am not a member of a faculty of
education, merely a retired teacher. It might be useful to have contact with
appropriate academics at Stanford U., for example.
2. Jack writes, "Let us assume that my view of the improvement cycles somehow
coincides with those already expressed by Douglas Engelbart. On that
assumption, I shall take this a bit further." A few words of "compare and
contrast" might well be helpful to a number of us.
3. I believe we must keep in mind that many pressing world-scale problems are
not entirely in the cognitive domain. Examples: heigtened discrimination in
times of economic distress and economic selfishness. Ecological, social and
economic problems, it has been claimed, are strongly interconnected
("econology"). In accord herewith the human cognitive and affective domains are
interconnected. But augmentation, as I understand it, is not perceived as
directly addressing the affect. Something to bear in mind.
