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

David Alan Grier, an associate professor of international science and technology policy at George Washington University, is an IEEE Fellow and the author of the forthcoming book, "The Company We Keep". Contact him at grier@gwu.edu or on Twitter @dagrier.

Errant Hashtag: The Comfort Zone

Author David Alan Grier expands on his Errant Hashtag column, in which he discusses how interdisciplinary work is a key part of computing, but that it often demands we drop old conceptions and learn to think as others do.
