    The page is about communication: programmers and users.

    "This research grew out of my proposal that an in-depth study of the
    relational differences and similarities of people in the roles of
    programmer and user would show that this often-perceived gap is less
    dichotomous than either side of the communication struggle may assume. I
    found, however, evidence that continues to suggest that there is indeed a
    strong difference between the ways of thinking, so the bulk of my analysis
    continued with this finding in mind. Robert Pirsig (Zen and the Art of
    Motorcycle Maintenance, 1974) draws distinctions between classical versus
    romantic ways of understanding, then bridges this gap with "quality" -- an
    identifiable, yet elusive concept and reality. This Action Research
    Practicum draws heavily upon both my own and Pirsig's philosophies of
    technology and quality and how differing world views color the
    understanding between different groups."
