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."
