David Alan Grier, Associate Professor of International Science and Technology Policy and International Affairs


The Company We Keep, IEEE Computer Society, 2012.


In his new book, David Alan Grier tells the stories that technical papers omit. Moving beyond the stereotypes of nerds and social misfits, The Company We Keep explores the community of people who build, use, and govern modern computing technology. The essays are both insightful and intimate, showing the impact of technology and the human character behind it. This book examines the development of digital technology by describing how this technology affects the communities that build, adapt, govern, and dispose of it.
