I chose the user name Maria Mitchell with respect for her pioneering work in library science, producing the first serious cataloging system, one which inspired (in part) Melvil Dewey to create the decimal system, and because of the unique place of the Athenaeum in intellectual history, which seems to me to be a precursor to the wikipedia concept.
