- Nov 2, 2009John,
I think we'll wait for the white paper. My initial comment is that while your approach seems quite rigorous it also seems a little divorced from the language that people use in businesses - no one talks about agents (unless they work for the CIA) but they do talk aboutcustomers, clients, suppliers, and partners.

As a method for managing collections, Q6 is based on Ranganathan' s system of classification. Interestingly, it also has a loose resemblence to the Zachman Framework for enterprise architecture, but was independently derived.
The difference with Q6 is in its granularity and its geometry. In addition to using the concepts of colon classification, the principles of Q6 start at word level and can be extended right up through any digital asset. Photos, documents, diagrams and construction drawings can all be deconstructed and reassembled using the same nineteen facets and Q6 axioms.
I'm working on a whitepaper outlining the approach and the results of the first few applications. It should be finished fairly shortly.
