As the Chief Digital Officer and Publisher of Merriam-Webster, Lisa Schneider views herself and her team as reporters—rather than definers—of language.

We speak with Lisa about how the Internet is shaping data collection on word usage, the Webby-Winning M-W social presence, and how Lisa and her team have tapped into cultural discussions to create a digital record of what words (and topics) are occupying Americans’ minds.
