We paid tribute to our beloved departing dean, Harry Bruce, with a celebration on Wednesday, June 7. Read our short story, check out our photo gallery from the event, and be sure to visit the guestbook on our tribute site.

Associate Professor Joe Janes has a new book out, based on his popular podcast. “Documents that Changed the Way We Live” takes an expansive view of what makes a document as Janes weaves stories about their role in history.

iSchool Associate Professor Bill Howe is part of an effort to promote open science by automatically identifying overdue datasets. Read about it in UW Today.

Howe is also quoted in a USA Today story about great jobs and how to get them. Data science is fertile ground for great jobs.

For their Capstone project, Informatics students John Diego, Huy Nguyen, Christy Pham and Marika Rundle worked with Seattle’s API Chaya to help trauma survivors reclaim their voices and tell their stories. Read about their inspiring work in a story on our website.

The New Yorker is the latest to write about “Calling Bullshit in the Age of Big Data,” which will be offered again as a 3-credit course in the fall.
