Hires Sean Boisen and Steven Runge

BELLINGHAM, WA—March 2, 2007—Logos Bible Software has expanded its design and editorial department by hiring Sean Boisen as senior information architect and Dr. Steven Runge as scholar-in-residence.

Boisen is at work on organizing semantic resources to support new approaches to searching and understanding the Scriptures. He is also developing new strategies and technologies for using large digital libraries. Dr. Runge is developing original language tools particularly geared for pastors.

“The design and editorial team is at the heart of our efforts to combine new data with the best information technology to create ever more powerful ways to study the Bible,” said Bob Pritchett, president/CEO, Logos Bible Software. “Both Sean and Steve were making valuable contributions to the field of biblical studies before coming to Logos. Their work here will pay dividends for students of the Bible worldwide.”

Before coming to Logos, he was a director in the speech and language processing department at BBN Technologies, a high-tech research and development company headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
