# 1 1 The Title of the Activity is: Coordination With NOTEPAD Systems International You are up to date. ACTION: 291 Review Notes 91 Note 91 From Breck (Ren) To Pesht (Levon) 10-Mar-89 7:22AM-PST Dear Levon, Your last note means a great deal to me and to all of us who have shared in the important work of these past months. I share your thoughts that we have built a new set of relations that can endure as binding foundations for new opportunities between our two nations, and perhaps open new frontiers for sustainable human development. The process of using electronic communications to build a dialogue that trancends sterotypes and historical boundaries social and geographical to create and respect diversity is new to our world. Notepad is a form of human expression that we have seen since our founding that extends the ability of an individual or group of people to work cooperatively towards specific goals defined by their interaction and mutual exchanges. As such we have been dedicated to using this medium to meet human needs, where other mediums have been unsuccessful or inadequate due to their limited constraints. Notepad was engineered from the human being to the machine to be a kind of medium unconstrained by time or space. We have sponsored conferences for Nasa that have taken us into space to travel with Pioneer and Voyager in thier historic journeys across our solar system. In 1982 we linked five nations and hundreds of school children to talk with the scientists involved in flying these missions. The first communications satellites were designed on notepad, as is our Space Station. Notepad is being used to evaluate our critical options in the next decade for international conferences to bring experts together to evaluate sustainable human development and stewardship on our planet given the finite resources of our ecological and natural resources. In Nepal Notepad was used to develop a replicable model in 120 villages to construct a program with the World Health Agency and the SEVA Foundation to diagnose and treat trachoma, vitamin A deficiencies and cataracts. This special program now is being used in India and Africa to help treat the 500,000,000 people in Third World nations sufferring from preventable causes of blindness. At Chernobyl in 1986 our world network worked to develop the means and techniques used by the USSR to extinguish the fire and cap the reactor. On a daily basis we create forums of every kind between people for strategic planning and evaluations, to build projects ranging from health systems, elderly and handicapped housing, urban planning, new applications of remote sensing, even diagnose and masterplan the process we used here in California to quell the Medfly crisis, a major problem in poor nations, and one that could have cost the loss of over $14 billion in agricultural products here in California. Our design and development of Notepad has taken us fifteen years and $3,000,000. It's processes and techniques for interactive networking and information management remain decades ahead of existing systems. From the historical development of packet switching to innovations in human and data management Notepad has set world standards and opened new doors in computer science in man and machine interactions. Because of this intimite history and evolution we envision our medium being used for helping to bring together inter-disciplinary teams to fuse scientific and philosophical approaches into new integrated systems for global earth sciences. This new contextual or integrated systems approach to problem solving reverses the linear specialized focus of the industrial era and makes possible post industrial opportunities for mankind. I am firmly convinced that this kind of evaluation, analysis, strategic planning must occur in all fields to resolve the critical social, scientific, natural resources, and other implications we in the Western nations must deal with if we are to sustain human development in an inter-dependent world of diversity. For these reasons and more we are taking measures this week to restructure our corporation and reposition it for future development. As we have broken precidents in crossing boundaries no one said we could, I intend to continue to support the kind of applications of Notepad we have championed to use science and technology for the service of mankind...brave words in a world that still can't seem to see the mutual inter-dependence and inter-connectedness of the issues all peoples share. Notepad is vital to this process of human dialogue and interaction. I look forward to meeting with Serdiuk and others to continue to build this dialogue within the constraints of our nation's laws for interchange. I also like the idea of creating an on-site center for international cooperation or agency in Yerevan to help coordinate the resources needed to help restore the region to self-sufficiency and to meet the needs we have seen. Over the weekend we will be designing our new structure and I will let you know through next week of our directions. For now we have preserved the network...I will continue to relay your messages. Thank you for your kindness and support as we navigate the crisis we have faced this week. Ren 1 Note was found.
