A note for prospective students: My earlier work was about applications of social computing technology to education. I am no longer doing education-related work. I do not sponsor students for summer internships unless they attend Georgia Tech.

A note for journal editors and administrators looking for tenure letter writers: I am not current on the education literature any more, and am unable to review education papers or write promotion or tenure letters for education candidates.
