I'm Schuyler, and I've been slowly nudging my way into traditional academia for the past several years. Lacking a degree of any sort has been a bit of an impediment, but for some reason I continued to seek validation for my research from traditional institutions. Then, @vanessa asked me "Why?" and I'm yet to come up with a concise answer that wouldn't require the guidance of a therapist to uncover.
So, I'm excited to dive into P2PU and learn this very other way of pursuing education. I'm embarking on creating a course now centered around the history of security. I had a somewhat rigidly structured class in mind, based on papers and lectures I've worked on for years, but having been through some of the topics on the site, I'm letting go of my structure and am looking to recruit some participants who can help me form a new plan together.
Very glad to be here!
OH! And here's a picture of me on Wheel of Fortune:
Gah! I apparently can't upload attachments, so here's a link to the introduction clip instead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uF94hy0alXA
