Lexicographers in the press

I was quite excited yesterday to spot a little article in the 'Work' section of The Guardian about the job of being a lexicographer - 'How do you decide the meaning of a word?'

It isn't a wildly exciting article and I doubt it'll make many folks want to rush out and become lexicographers, but it's just refreshing to see something about lexicography that doesn't mention new coinages or correct usage!
