Oh, I do realize that. It seems that all the authors of the chapters
happen to quote their own results in the places they discuss as most
interesting and/or important. Of course, the causation may go the other
way around as well; those people are writing those chapters because they
did something interesting.

It's a relatively badly written (mostly) and edited book, but for
references and general ideas about subfields it seems pretty good.

Right, the ACM website is a gem. I didn't realize that so early
papers would be there.

Right, I hadn't looked at citeseer yet.

These will be interesting to read. It is only now with AJ's work that
we are getting into versioning at all.
