[A note to my web audience: these remarks are deliberately written in a colloquial style, intended for an oral presentation.]

I appreciate the opportunity to give this keynote address.  I'll be speaking on "Systems Thinking, Design Science, and Paradigms: Heeding Three Lessons from the Past to Resolve Three Dilemmas in the Present to Direct a Trajectory for Future Research in the Information Systems Field."  All of the slides and the complete text of my remarks are available on the web at http://saturn.vcu.edu/~aslee/ICIM-keynote-2000/ICIM-keynote-2000.htm.
