Editorial Board: Section Co-chairs Research Highlights – Stuart Russell and David Patterson Contributed Articles- Al Aho and George Gottlob News – Marc Najork and Prabhakar Raghavan Viewpoints - William Aspray and Susanne Hambursch Web - Marti Hearst and James Landay Practice: Steve Bourne
Path to Launch (July 2008) Cannot wait for editorial board to form! Content pipeline must be primed! Solution: solo action by EiC (Sep. 2007)
