First Paragraph

It is now ten years since I began to place my lecture notes on the World Wide Web. When I started it in 1996, I did it rather reluctantly, in response to personnel and funding pressures that resulted in “voluntary retirements” and increased teaching loads for the remaining staff. I saw placing my lecture notes on the web as a cheap way of managing overlapping teaching duties while trying to remain active in research.
