When I log into IRC (Internet Relay Chat), I can choose to enter a chat room with a specific topic. I can even do that in forums. I would like to have software that also sets a Hat colour for the room (time setting optional) or has subrooms of each colour. The software should also record the room session and allow for the creation of a condensed executive summary of the logs for each hat colour. Logs can be viewed and items added by anyone after the live session. This way the parallel…Continue

I was looking at the CoRT Thinking.com website a few days ago. I just stumbled onto it looking for CoRT information on the web. Then today I saw a posting of the link in the CoRT group.
The website looks very good! They even have the Yak pictures! It uses PayPal for online payment with numerous credit cards. There is even a fund to support underpriviliged students. It should have been online one or two decades ago. Now, the lessons are old technology.
I would like to see software…

Thank you for the information regarding DeBono Global, Mr. Jones. Also, thank you for popping my perceptual bubble. I have never seen a prominently displayed reference to DeBono Global on any websites or with the books or CDs I have purchased. I also have never heard anyone mention Dr. de Bono or his ideas in public conversation and I have never seen advertising for Mr. de Bono's books or training other than on websites I have stumbled upon. Perhaps things are different in Europe than in…Continue

WARNING!!! This may be more of a rant than a blog.
Both Dr. de Bono and R. Buckminster Fuller have publicly stated that they will not promote their ideas. Dr. de Bono uses a saying about keeping his horns in his pockets. That's o.k. i guess. However, while some things may have a natural gestation rate and require patience, it seems a great tragedy to see CoRT and Dr. de Bono's other ideas getting recognition at what seems like a snail's pace over a period of several decades. The ideas…Continue
I'd like to know if someone can help me on how to extract concepts.
Mr De Bono says they breed ideas, and they are one of the key components in (for example) having a beautiful mind.
On the other hand, concepts are not definitions, neither practical ideas.
What would be the concept of the Human Hair (head) for example. Could something like our hair have a concept?
do concepts have anything to do with function?
for example a so-called "concept-car" is that…Continue
I've been threatening you with the second half of J77507U for two years now, but ... along with an extraordinary number of technical issues ... the last two years have been unexpectedly busy
It's been hanging over my head ... nagging away at me ... though - I haven't been losing sleep over it, but it has been a cause for a certain amount of background malaise in my life
I've done a number of demos in the meantime, which I haven't upped for various reasons ,…Continue
