Yeah, mostly just being a wise guy.  I do think the phrase "act of 
consumption" feels a bit clunky, but that's a mostly editorial concern, 
and I leave it to you to decide whether it's worth changing.  One might 
say that the "receiver processes the text" or "determines the information 
conveyed by the text."   Anyway, up to you.  Still looking doubtful that 
I'll get to transcribe more before leaving, but I'll do my best.

Versioning Draft

Hi Noah,
Thank you for taking the time to do this.  I have processed your comments. 
I did something to the document to address every comment, except one. I 
still have more work to do on the document before posting an update, then 
you can take a look at the update and see if what I've done is ok. 
Act of Consumption >>[NRM6]Sounds too much like it relates to 
What should I do with this?  Is acking it a good enough act of consumption 
for you?

On today's call you strongly encouraged me to transcribe my written 
comments on your versioning finding in time for you to use.  I managed to 
get started on the Terminology section.  Time is limited, and the comments 
on the first pages are particularly dense, so it's taken me awhile to get 
these 4 pages entered.  I'm not optimistic about finding more time this 
week, but I'll try.  As you can see, this is somewhat time-consuming to 
transcribe.  I think that if you get the general sense of the editorial 
concerns, you'll be able to read much of the rest with an eye toward 
similar issues.  Anyway, I'll send more if I can.  As I said at the F2F, I 
thought that some of the newer material in the other parts of the finding 
was in much better shape editorially (and I did a less careful review at 
the time, having burned a lot of energy on terminology and strategies), so 
there probably are fewer comments on them. 

I hope this is a useful start in any case. 

Turns out MS word does a really bizarre job of printing the comments into 
the PDF.  Where they fit on the page, it uses the balloons.  The others 
show at the bottom when displayed on screen, but seem lost when printed. 
Anyway, the attached PDF shows some comments nicely formatted in context 
but others its missing entirely!  The HTML version is what you should read 
to get all the comments, since many are just not include in the PDF due to 
this problem with Word.  Still, I'm passing on the PDF too, because for 
the ones it does show, it's easier to follow where they go. Sorry for this 
silliness, but it's late, and I don't have time to fix it.  If you have 
Word, you can open the HTML in that and you should see them all in
