ICPSR: Then and Now
As many of you have already heard, Myron Gutmann, the director of ICPSR, has accepted a position with the National Science Foundation, and will be leaving ICPSR at the end of October. If you have not heard the news, here is a link to the press release.
With the departure of Myron and the start of a new academic year, the time feels right for a retrospective series of posts. I'm intending to post two or three per week over the next few weeks, and the general theme will be "ICPSR: Then and Now."
Myron hired me in September 2002, and so late 2002 will form the bulk of my "then" for this series. We'll take a brief stroll down memory lane, looking at how ICPSR - and especially technology at ICPSR - has changed over the past seven years.
