Ed Irvin reminds us why we can't always trust technology to have our backs:

"Siobhan Vivian, co-author of Burn for Burn, comparing stories of name butcherings, says her college writing professor took to calling her Soybean because that's what Microsoft Word auto-corrected her name to." 

Ed Irvin is a contributor to the Florida Book Review.
