The Errant Hashtag

The Errant Hashtag is a column that wanders through the world of computer science and computer engineering. It looks for the human element, the people who create the new technology and tries to understand how they innovate. It is supposed to be an interactive column, a chance for people to tell their own stories and help us understand the state of the technological world. It is a column about people, about what they do, and about how they contribute to the field of computing

Errant Hashtag: Just Out of It

Author David Alan Grier provides an audio recording of his Errant Hashtag column, in which he discusses how modernity seems to have done nothing to weaken our desire to be part of a group. If anything, it seems to have strengthened it. From Computer's January 2014 issue: http://www.computer.org/csdl/mags/co/2014/01/index.html. Visit Computer: http://www.computer.org/computer.
