I'm a computational social scientist and author. I spend my days searching for
interesting things about our world and new ways to express and understand
them, and do my best to help everybody learn about them.
Besides a long stream of articles in the popular and academic press,
I've worked on patent reform at Brookings and the Free Software
Foundation, a library for statistical computing at the US Census
Bureau, and published a handful of books.
