Further reflecting on RIME’s development, as I write these notes, I am pleased, and maybe surprised that the hazy initiative that began in uncharted waters in 2000 continues to progress and is now publishing its fifth issue. As I tell my graduate students, history is difficult to assess as it is happening, and I think this may be no more evident than in the world of online publishing and instruction. When I do web searches for RIME, I am pleased to find it in many databases and am reminded that being careful about editorial content is paramount, since I have no idea how far the work of these scholars will reach.
