Not Spam. Most Definitely Not Spam.

Speaking of major coups for Pittsburgh institutions, David Farber has left the University of Pennsylvania to join the Computer Science faculty at Carnegie Mellon University. Although he is frequently introduced as the former chief technologist for the Federal Communications Commission (which he was, during the mid-1990s), Professor Farber was in fact one of the very first computer scientists to appreciate the deep public policy problems created by the Internet. As a scientist and as a policy scholar, today he is one of the titans of the field of Internet public policy. In addition to his appointment in Computer Science, Professor Farber is also part of the InSITes (Information Technology and Public Policy) program at the Heinz School.
