(This is an unusual opportunity I think, a chance to set the agenda of a
very influential and capable organization with an international
reputation. And, more specifically, to shape its r&d in digital libraries,
arts and humanities computing, electronic publishing, electronic books,
and IT standards research. A wide range of candidates are plausible --
from Associate Directors of academic centers who are ready to strike out
on their own, to ex-CEOs who want to return to academia, to academics who
want to try something more entrepreneurial. -- AHR)
