Thanks. Always nice to have author background/information. It also helps to a degree to place the mindset of the author (in terms of background, experience, prevailing social ideas during his formative/professional years, and so on).

My suspicion is that Proceedings wouldn't have published the piece if they didn't think it would resonate with at least a small segment of their reading audience.
