Why should we look at the authoring process in adaptive educational hypermedia design? How does detecting authoring patterns help the process? Why do we need to consider cognitive styles in adaptive hypermedia? What do these seemingly unrelated topics have in common? These and other questions, along with some possible answers are posed in this paper. This is an introductory paper for the "First International Workshop on Authoring of Adaptive and Adaptable Educational Hypermedia". The paper will illustrate the motivation that led us to establish this workshop, and comment on some of the responses we received. Moreover, this paper aims to stimulate discussion by proposing potentially controversial answers, as well as refining the initial question set and asking new questions.
