Ming, it appear to me that once again you are looking for a software module that can be used to connect you with the information that you need, when you need it. Someway to filter through all the noise in the noosphere and throttle that stream down so you can take a comfortable drink rather than having your lips ripped off by a firehose. I've found that the organic cpu models work best, the ones with two legs that can walk between busy intersection points. Where you can ask a quick question and get a quick response from the one person that knows what you want, without all the noise of everybody having to contribute their comments as well.
In the everyday real world of the matrix I have found that wifes work best for paying the bills. My male friends would bring home the money, get an allowance and be allowed to play a bit, but the wife spent the money and that was responsibly done by them having them pay bills first and then only spending on themselves what was left over, and the more efficient they were with expenses the more money they had left to themselves.
Sometimes when a person is busy changing the world, or working on million dollar deals, it is easy to brush aside the $50 speeding ticket, or a $30 phone bill as being unimportant just because it is so small and trivial in comparison but then it comes back to bite hard. The matrix does not like to be ignored and wants you to spend most of your time thinking about 'it' rather than something of your own choosing.

What a great idea. God knows (literally, probably) what the algorithm would be for that :)
18 Jul 2004 @ 12:16 by ming : Pragmatic advice
See, one usually ends up with good and pragmatic advice like that. Let you wife handle the bills. Or an assortment of systems people find useful. Put them in a shoebox, get this or that program, color-code them, etc. All of which is good, and maybe that would work for me too. And, yes, asking the right person will take care of many things. Asking at all makes a big difference.
But it is still basically that we find a system for dealing with the 10 items that are most close and most pressing. Where really there's a billion items we don't get around to dealing with, because they aren't clear or connected.
Most of us live our lives like the janitor at the nuclear power station. I don't know how the hell it works or what exactly it does, but I know where the broom is and what time I get off.

Funny you give that link. I just spent part of the day helping ISSS through some website changes. They've lived on this same server here for years. But, yes, systems thinking is what is needed.

Hasn't it already been a systems thinking world. Perhaps the way and the answers are within. I suppose you could call that a systems thinking mode.
18 Jul 2004 @ 18:39 by ming : Systems
The world is already based on systems. Or, it IS a whole system. The whole universe. So kind of strange that we find novelty in doing "systems thinking". Yeah, of course that's a bit of an intellectual way of expressing the stuff that already is both within and without.

Fritjof Capra did a nice review of that field in his "Web of Life"

perceive our information and process it uniquely, in my opinion. Part of the wonder and joy of being alive and around others is observing this phenomenon...and even talking with folks about how their particular "systems" work and were formed. If they can talk about it, that is. Not everyone in my experience can do it...or is comfortable or desirous of doing so.
Speaking of bills, Dana did the budget when we first got married...but slowly it evolved that it became my job. I don't think we ever had an objective talk about it, probably because our decision-making process together isn't the best feature of our marriage. It just became noticeable I guess that I have an organization feature in my character that works pretty well on maintenance. Dana is very creative, but likes to have me around to clean up. Mostly that's a good trade...except when I feel my own creativity is being stifled, or I can't find something I need that she didn't clean up.
The most incredible bill-paying system I ever ran into was a food co-op I joined in the early 1970s. Almost immediately they spotted my organizational skills (and were not so afraid of them they thought I might "take over" the community) and made me treasurer. I never had been treasurer of anything in my life! I asked where the accounts were, and they took me into a back room where there was a disconnected bathtub. In the bathtub were hundreds of invoices. The procedure was if you wanted to check something recent you looked on the top. For history you might have to dig around underneath. Then I was offered a joint.

well, not so much anymore, but I love the analogy to needing to know/do something somewhere in the ephemera of our existence...

While John prepares his post on Rothbury I tughoht I'd share my experience at this years Mayhem Fest (briefly..).Top 3 Performances (no order):Black Dahlia MurderSlayerTriviumTop 3 Bands I'm just getting tired of:Killswitch Engage (who remembers the original singer?)Bullet for My Valentine (John's favorite)Cannibal Corpse (for whatever reason the band was not as enthusiastic as smaller band performances, such as God Forbid.)I didn't stay for Marylin Manson, nor did a good portion of the crowd. Slayer should have headlined, but by the time Manson was up it was 2 AM and I had a drive to make, so eh .

I know how you feel Jon I've been in the same boat for the past year. Everynight I feel like I got something going on. No more going home after work. It's slionwg down just recently. Thank God.And yes, I did know about Outlook 2007 (2003 does also) using winword for rendering HTML. Many many crashes in Outlook start as a result of winword.exe process hanging after viewing HTML mail. They also have been known to call it WordMail , referring to using Word as the HTML renderer.
