On January 5, 2013, the Modern Language Association Discussion Group on
Lexicography sponsored session 562, “Digital Dictionaries,” at the
MLA’s annual meeting in Boston
<http://www.mla.org/conv_listings_detail?prog_id=562&year=2013>. 
Tweets reporting that session were later assembled at Storify.com

Jennifer Howard interviewed the participants before publishing her article,
“In the Digital Era, Our Dictionaries Read Us,” in the *Chronicle of
Higher Education* on March 11, 2013
