On 15th August Nick Kallen, a former Twitter engineer, stopped by to talk to us about the reading environment he has created to help teach himself Ancient Greek.

Nick will help Perseus rebuild its architecture so as to increase speed, improve overall performance and thus optimise derivative tools such as Iliados or Alpheios.
