Hi all,

I wish to learn a nice, BRIEF understanding of "truth maintenance" as
it applies to knowledge-based or expert systems programming. I know
it's considered a form of artificial intelligence (essentially
spinning it with a different term since AI doesn't have a nice
ringable smack to it with the general public..or so I'm told).

Any recommended URLs out there? I'm essentially looking for quick and
concise here. I don't wish to nor do I have time to read in depth.
