The core of DDQ 6(3) is the beginning of a critique of Information
Science. This critique, planned to continue in future DDQ numbers,
explores the proposition that Information Science will not resolve
current uncertainties about its place as an academic discipline on a
par with Computer Science, but instead will fade within two decades,
with its concerns becoming topics in more enduring university faculties.

Information Science professionals who believe this prediction
mistaken might wish to present counter-arguments to what appears in
DDQ. To them, I suggest that Information Science will fade unless
they can produce justifications and scoping statements much more
robust than any I have read. Should they want DDQ to publish or cite
of their refutations, I will be happy to include them provided that
they accommodate the compact DDQ style.

Readers are reminded that embedded links provide quick access to
other authors' discussions of topics that DDQ mentions, in case they
want more depth than DDQ can provide.
