Getting there

Category: Academic,Hackers,Teaching — Biella @ 8:19 am

The fall semester is right around the corner and I have spent the last week obsessively tweaking my hacker course. I think I finally crafted a syllabus I can live with for the rest of the semester.

I say “live with” because of what I excluded, which I simply did not want to (notably there is no material on DeCSS/DMCA, hacking the I-Phone, and I wanted to do more on encryption). But the good thing is I will be teaching this again in the future and will learn how to rotate in and out some of this material. Now I am off to enjoy a final free day before teaching responsibilities really begin.

  1. Hi B!

    The URL is a bit messed-up. That said, the Syllabus looks exceptionally sharp and very good introduction to all things hackish.

    Besides, any Syllabus containing the sentence

    can’t do much wrong in my book. :-)

  2. Whoa, my attempt at using blockquotes failed miserably.

    What I meant to say was:

    “Besides, any Syllabus containing the sentence

    [Closely read the first few paragraphs and then skim]

    canít do much wrong in my book.”

  4. That looks terrific, despite the lack of DeCSS/DMCA material. Only so much you can squeeze in, and you’ve covered a *ton* there.
