I am reading in the area of law, criminology and privacy this past month.

Here are the books I am reading in law, privacy, surveillance and crime:

I am also reading some of the chapters of this new computer ethics book:

I investigated doing a Ph.D at Curtin University in Australia.

I exchanged some e-mails with an Internet studies faculty member at Curtin university in Australia. The cost is very high as a foreign student though 25,000 dollars a year in tuition.
