My School of Information page is here.
I'm an adjunct full
professor at UC Berkeley's School of Information.
My linguistics research
includes work in semantics and pragmatics, text
classification, and written-language structure, and I
also work and write on the social and cultural
implications of new technologies. I'm co- teaching two
courses with Paul Duguid this spring: History
of Information and a graduate seminar on Concepts
I do a feature on language
on the NPR show "Fresh
Air" and have written numerous commentaries on
language for the Sunday New York Times Week in
Review, as well as for other periodicals. I've also
contributed occasional "letters from America" to the
BBC4 series "State of the Union." I'm the emeritus chair
of the usage
panel of the American Heritage Dictionary.
