Dec 26, 2005: Thank you, Andrew Dillon

Andrew Dillon, Dean of the University of Texas School of Information, has published his final IA column for the Bulletin of the American Society for Information Science & Technology (BASIS&T). He's been at it for five years; wow, that went fast.

Andrew has lent a much-needed academic perspective to IA, although I suspect that he is something of an iconoclast when it comes to academics. Certainly, his take on IA goes far beyond its connection to academia, and I'll miss reading his columns.

The good news is that Stacy Surla, who did such a wonderful job as program chair for the 2005 IA Summit, is taking over as the column's editor, and is seeking columns from guest contributors. (Details for future contributors are provided at the bottom of Andrew's last column.) Special request for Stacy: any chance of getting the entire column archive made available free via the Web?
