100 years FID

At the FID aniversary a special seminar to honour the work of Ingetraut Dahlberg was planned, but could unfortunately not take place. As I feel this landmark selection of contributions under the title:
KNOWLEDGE ORGANIZATION: TOWARD THE 21st CENTRUY
Mrs. Dahlberg has written in ETHICS and SOCIAL SCIENCES her arguments towards a culture of comon terms for (at least) the social sciences, but as as this needs to be not to be forgotten ! I would like to highlight this here again and again.
Later under the titel common frames of reference, or switching systems
part of the efforts were published but did not reach the place in academai
and society as such issues need to be put onto the appropriate level, as
we had to realise with the issue of meta-data
contributions have been refused as they were not properly "shelved" or
with the PAKM, in Basel,
where havy weigths and big names seem to be needed to find opportunities
like this "landmark" FID 100 in order to avoid what the Nobel laureat reiterate
nearly every year: We have to invent everything again and again for each
discipline. This was somehow also the central motto of the UN and G7 and
and and "HARMONIZATION" initiative, whos early proposals: INFORMATION
ABOUT ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION (See original EARTHWATCH proposal)
and the following designs need to be relaunched as the offices were closed
by financially starving UNEP.
