On June 22, 2011, Kevin Scannell joined Rosetta Stone for a live interview. He’s the creator of IndigenousTweets.com, and a Professor of Computer Science at Saint Louis University. Using his knowledge of computer science, he compiles tweets in over 100 different languages.
During the event, viewers posted questions for Professor Scannell regarding the intersection of language and technology. Rosetta Stone took live questions through Twitter, Facebook, and our blog (marked with the hashtag #AsktheScholar). The event streamed live on our Facebook page.
Here are two excerpts from the interview below. Be sure to post here on the blog with additional comments and questions.
