Subject: [humanmarkup] HM.applications updated, with reservations,and an Appeal to Email Apps Thinkers

Hi Everyone,

I finished this pass at the HM. applications document. I have been 
conferring all day off and on with Rob Nixon about the way to list 
the many AI techniques which we need to mention in a way that allows 
them to be easily formatted as separate entities or entries even 
though they are not on their own stand alone applications. They may 
yet be listed as techniques without the "Generation" tacked on to 
imply that they are HumanMarkup-Enabled "Generators" of Inference 
Engines, Networks, Documents, Databases, etc.

So I wanted to add the disclaimer that there will undoubtedly be many 
changes as we go forward, and, in fact, HumanMarkup is not designed 
to produce stand alone applications although HumanML_Write/Report 
comes close. It however, is still more of a word processor 
enhancement than a HumanML applications per se.

In any event, HumanMarkup is aimed at enabling applications as an 
HLAL, or meta meta language, a language about languages about 
languages. Say it 20 times really quick and you'll get dry mouth.

Please bear in mind that we are largely expanding on previous work, 
and it is very difficult to consider all the possible uses to which 
our child will be put. And it is impossible, as Honest Abe pointed 
out, to please all of the people all of the time. This pass at our 
documents is aiming at comprehensiveness, but we realize that much 
more will need to be done.

One last thing: Would Henrik and/or Manos care to pen a few lines 
about the kind of applications for enabling better email filtering or 
notification or email list management that they have envisioned? I 
would like to add as many specifics as I can before I take this stuff 
to the Web Services Component Model TC meeting in NY in Jan to see if 
we have common ground for discussions about official liaisons.

And so it goes,
