I don't think we've met. Those who know me have learned not to pay
much attention to anything I say. I'm basically the resident crackpot
on this list. I'd guess your remarks were well-considered and useful.
I think it might have been the mention of Microsoft that started me
feeling a bit testy. :-)
As for Dean Martin, he started out as the straight man to Jerry Lewis
in a lot of silly movies in the early 1950's (I know, "Who's Jerry
Lewis?"), but he was primarily a singer of sophisticated songs like
"When the Moon Hits Your Eye Like a Bigga Pizza Pie". (Jump in here
Steve Cavrak.) He also hung out in Vegas with Sinatra (You know he was
right? Please say you do.), to whom he delivered that line about
epistemology in the midst of a nightclub act. It was the incongruity,
you see . . .
Now, do you understand why people don't pay much attention to anything
I say? :-)

I suppose this might be why you are a technology "director" ... I am
not so sure about the chicken and the egg process, but I do know that
what you think and communicate impacts the "knowledge process" ... isn't
that why you replied? Thanks for leading me to think about this again.
I'm still just trying to understand a lot of things about technology....
who is Deam Martin :-D

Hmmm. Seems strange. Shouldn't it be the other way around?
the "knowledge process" be leading technology?
But, in the words of the late Dean Martin: "If ya' gonna talk
epistemology, I don't wanna chit-chat."
