I understand your points, Nick, & further recognize that this is not your call but rather Stata's.  Assuming that the folks at Stata do read the StataList, I would like to echo de Souza's recommendation -- that at least some of the Stata Journal 5 (1)  pieces on the history of Stata be made available on the Stata website in some form.  For one thing, when I searched the Stata website I found almost nothing on its history.  The history is interesting & underscores the fact that Stata is a growing, stable & enduring organization  -- suggesting that one needn't worry about investing one's time in a product that will likely vanish from the planet.
