Volume: 132(6) - June, 2010
A journal like JMD is the product of an extensive collaboration of many individuals: authors, editors, editorial staff, and production staff. As technical editor, an important role for me is to make sure the journal expresses the scholarly interests and intellectual desires of our community, and help to plan its future directions. I have been using the editorial “podium” to communicate my thoughts and incite some dialogs. In the same spirit, I have started to invite members of our community to do the same using this editorial page. I am pleased to introduce this first guest editorial below provided by Jonathan Cagan of Carnegie Mellon University, with my thanks to him for responding positively to my request.
