I was invited to answer a set of questions motivated by Anthony Watt’s excellent surface temperature project [see www.surfacestations.org] project by James Wynn of the English Department at Carnegie Mellon University. The website at the University includes the brief bio]
James Wynn has published articles on rhetoric, mathematics, and science in Rhetorica, Written Communication, and 19th Century Prose. His recent interests have been in rhetoric, science, mathematics and public policy with a focus on nuclear power. He is a founder and current director of the Pittsburgh Consortium for Rhetoric and Discourse Studies.
With his permission, I have reproduced the relevant part of our e-mail exchange below [my replies are in italics]
See the full interview and his commentary here.
I was interviewed as well, and it was quite a long conversation. Wynn was quite interested in the citizen science aspect of the project and how it functioned.
