Honoring Walt Wolfram

Somewhat old news (from a NCSU release of 12/6/13):

Walt Wolfram, the William C. Friday Distinguished Professor at NC State, has been honored with the state of North Carolina’s highest civilian honor for his commitment to public service. Wolfram received the North Carolina Award at a ceremony hosted by Governor Pat McCrory.

Among other things,

Wolfram developed the “principle of linguistic gratuity” emphasizing the importance of giving back to the communities where he collects data for his research studies.
