        Subject: a milestone

"A key milestone in the evolution of a new discipline is the point at 
which practitioners begin to ask questions about why they work in the 
way they do, what their collective identity is, and what they have to 
say as a collective. As a window on this philosophy, the personal 
reflections of members of a user community can provide valuable insights 
into the technologyÂ’s history."
