Canadian sociologist and writer (1922 - 1982). His different books and essays offer a variety of different views. He observed social interactions in a very detailed and insightful way and developed a lot of language to describe these observations. In his Presidential Address as President of the American Sociological Association he writes about "interaction order" as the field of sociology he had worked for to establish (he died from cancer before he could give that talk). His work should gain new importance as a basis for the analysis and understanding of online interactions.
