It is both an honor and a privilege to be invited to speak at this tenth anniversary meeting. This symposium has become an established fixture in the laser community, for whom its only title will always be “The Laser Damage Meeting,” even though I recommended changing it. As a participant and attendee of many of these meetings over the years, and even as an editor with Art Guenther and Alex Glass for the first one, I must admit that ten years ago few of us expected that our trip to Boulder would become an annual pilgrimage. On the other hand, I doubt that any of us could have appreciated the tenacity with which this group would hold onto the opportunity to spend a week in the Rockies each year!
