Leading lexicographer discusses the future of the dictionary

I love dictionaries as I guess most translators do. So I was watching this TED talk again and thought you would enjoy it too:

Erin McKean redefines the dictionary -

"Is the beloved paper dictionary doomed to extinction? In this infectiously exuberant talk, leading lexicographer Erin McKean looks at the many ways today's print dictionary is poised for transformation."

Erin McKean - "As one of the youngest editors of a "Big Five" American dictionary, Erin McKean is at the forefront of a new guard of lexicographers reshaping not just dictionaries, but our language itself."
