Abstract Editor's Note: New fields, such as computer science, cognitive science, neuroscience, human-computer interaction, and now information, have multidisciplinary origins. To overcome communication difficulties as they worked to define the field and set priorities, pioneers developed a pidgin language. Soon came a generation of scholars, who staked their careers on the new field, creolizing the language and shaping a coherent framework relatively free of the legacy disciplines. In this article three research faculty members from the Information School of the University of Washington, discuss the tensions and opportunities in this 21st-century discipline that could become the most influential of all. ---Jonathan Grudin
