to my iSchool web page. The School of Information is part
of the University of Texas. The discipline of Library and
Information Science (LIS) is long and storied, tracing its
roots from antiquity (think ancient Alexandria) through
today's multi-faceted and highly intensive challenges
around effectively organizing, finding, using, and sharing
I've got a pretty long history with this place, having
completed both my MLIS and PhD here. I'm no longer a
student but I remain an adjunct faculty member, teaching
classes on information security, surveillance/privacy, and
the intelligence community.
My day job is in the tech industry where I am a consultant
and author, working in the area of Information and IT
I live here in Austin with my wife and our son (who took
the picture "ghost dad" above).
