I want to sue people?
I have a strong social conscience, so I want the ability to fight the right battles in a future society (mainly in online privacy issues). I am doing a M.P.A. right now so I can have the skills to run a nonprofit and/or provide inputs on tech policy formation in the future.
I was a geek in HS. Had online access, ran BBS and go into hacking a bit during the infancy of the WWW. After I dropped out of college, I happened upon the internet boom. There were a lack of technically skilled workers, so I worked through a consulting firm and got into doing contracts. It was harder to get a full-time job without a degree, the recruiters were definitely easier to work with as they helped placing me. After a couple years of experience I didn't even put any education section on my resume. Since I worked for big companies like Motorola and Canon, the experience did the talking. I don't really enjoy the field though, I enjoy the work, but not taking orders/directions from people who don't understand the technical side of thing. I also see a future in legal and audit services because most people in the world and the industry have no idea where the boundary is. It is an exciting field to get into as they are just starting to figure it all out. I think I would enjoy being a part of this new sector/frontier very much.
This reads like my PS BTW lol.
Someone is going to sue the crap out of facebook, I hope it's me?
