Issue 7

This issue is packed with good stuff. We introduce Lew's Review of Info in Cyberspace with a summary of fascinating material on robots and avatars as both teachers and learners. The Advanced Technology Forum features a world-renown inventor of real-time music performance systems. The Director's Database introduces our new Dean and invites you to participate to help us fill our new, full-time faculty position. Brian Connors Careers column presents a useful lesson that many of us could stand to learn early in our careers. And we announce our Spring, 2011 Information Assurance course offering while also discussing the destructive Stuxnet cyber worm.
