Dear Professor Kaufman,
I also noted the problem of liberals taking over the universities, usually at ridiculously high salaries that pushes tuition to where college is not worth the price. There are some good but overly expensive programs such asthe MS in privacy engineering at Carnegie Mellon attached, but half of college students would be better off debt free as sharecroppers. Great fall weather here. Cool air invigorates and sends insects and snakes into hiding. Less leaves can see the terrain and lake better.
It’s grad student recruiting season…. here is what I am recruiting for…. send qualified students my way! I’m especially looking for students who have technical backgrounds but are interested in interdisciplinary studies around privacy, usable security, and technology and public policy. All programs are for full time students at the CMU campus in Pittsburgh, PA.
