The blurb is itself astoundingly exciting which tells you something about the article. Here is the blurb, click the article title or the permalink for the complete article.

An excellent article, by someone who not only grew up with the field, but grew with it.

yep, Nelson comes through every now and again. It is a rollicking read though, for sure.
