- Polanyi, Michael. Tacit Knowledge in Prusak, Laurence. Knowledge In Organizations (Boston: Butterworth-Heinemann, 1997) at 135.
- This was copyright to Polanyi in 1966. In this brief essay/lecture he explores tacit knowledge as a theory. He has some structure of a theory of this type of knowledge. In this type of knowledge we assume we do not know what we known. This type of knowledge can not really be known but we do know it under the surface of our thinking. He makes his argument referring to psychological experiments. These were popular in the 1960's and earlier. He claims to show that positivist science is a failure as scientific method and says objectivity is not a possible way to know the world. Scientific knowledge is best known and originally know through tacit knowledge.

I have been starting my backups to a network drive for the mid month. So far, I am working with Remembrance and the eMac.
I am also transferring my network music library to the new 1 TB drive.
I still have not fully transferred the first of the USB external drives to the network hard drive. It is not an easy process. There are always files that produce error messages and stop whole copy operations.

I started to read this book this evening and got the introduction read and started the first chapter:
- Balsamo, Anne. Technologies of the Gendered Body: Reading Cyborg Women (Durham, N.C.: Duke University, 1996).
- This is a really interesting read so far. It has me questioning bodies. In particular, I am interested in my own body and my fingers and my finger work on bass guitar and computer keyboard. And of course, I must learn to be even more sensitive to the objectification of the female body.
I am now reading more about Mikhail Soutchanski's work and read his school web page today and sent him and e-mail asking him to direct me to his page listing knowledge representation languages.
I am also reading about JMP software in the book:
- Schlotzhauer, Sandra D. Elementary Statistics Using JMP (Cary, N.C.: Sas Institute, 2007).
- I have read and worked through chapters 1 to 3 and have started chapter 4 and can now consider myself a JMP user.
