SIGIA-L: IA notation
Date: Sun Jun 18 2000 - 12:55:19 EDT
The development of any notation system requires a general agreement on the
meaning of arbitrary symbols, whether musical notation, Labanotation (for
dance), or written language.
The first step it seems to me, is to determine what concepts we want to
convey (which was Paula's question) and develop a (complete as possible, but
ever-growing) list. We then establish the common base of symbols. As soon as
we have a core group using and explaining the symbols, they become the de
facto language of IA.
Process description fairly simple, the process itself complicated.
