Bravo, Tim!  You are taking the first step toward breaking
down this wall of b.s. that is the "literature".

Before people had to publish or perish, before intellectual
communities were so spread out (read global), people could
just discuss ideas.  Luckily, this information superhighway
(or whatever) is making that possible again.

Fortunately, on the internet, titles don't mean anything and
we can all participate as equals, even if that makes some 
people uncomfortable.
