IEEE and ACM publications. Professor Wiederhold served as a contributor and reviewer for several CSTB reports, including Information Technology Research, Innovation, and E-Government; Youth, Pornography, and theInternet; Technical, Business, and Legal Dimensions of Protecting Children fromPornography on the Internet: Proceedings of a Workshop; Nontechnical Strategies to Reduce Children’s Exposure to Inappropriate Material on the Internet:Summary of a Workshop; Review of the FBI’s Trilogy Information TechnologyModernization Program; and a letter report to the FBI. Professor Wiederhold received a degree in aeronautical engineering in Holland in 1957 and a Ph.D. in medical information science from the University of California at San Francisco in 1976.
Herbert S. Lin is chief scientist at the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board, National Research Council, where he has been the study director of major projects on public policy and information technology. These studies include a 1996 study on national cryptography policy (Cryptography’s Role in Securing the Information Society), a 1991 study on the future of computer science (Computing the Future), a 1999 study of Defense Department systems for command, control, communications, computing, and intelligence (Realizing the Potential of C4I: Fundamental Challenges), a 2000 study on workforce issues in high technology (Building a Workforcefor the Information Economy), a 2002 study on protecting kids from Internet pornography and sexual exploitation (Youth, Pornography, and the Internet), a 2004 study on aspects of the FBI’s information technology modernization program (A Review of the FBI’s Trilogy IT Modernization Program), a 2005 study on electronic voting (Asking the Right Questions About ElectronicVoting), a 2005 study on computational biology (Catalyzing Inquiry at theInterface of Computing and Biology), a 2007 study on privacy and information technology (Engaging Privacy and Information Technology in a DigitalAge), and a 2007 study on cybersecurity research (Toward a Safer and MoreSecure Cyberspace). Prior to his NRC service, he was a professional staff member and staff scientist for the House Armed Services Committee (1986-1990), where his portfolio included defense policy and arms control issues. He received his doctorate in physics from MIT. Avocationally, he is a longtime folk and swing dancer and a poor magician. Apart from his CSTB work, he is published in cognitive science, science education, biophysics, and arms control and defense policy. He also consults on K-12 math and science education.
During this study, David Padgham was associate program officer at the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board (CSTB) of the National Research Council. His work comprised a robust mix of writing,
