Short term (5 years-ish) I want to go back to school and get my PhD. I can't decide between a PhD in Computer Science with research in Security and a PhD in Technology and Public Policy. I really want to go into politics and drive policy around cyber security. I'd like to protect the right to strong encryption, but also smaller things. For example, I really think it should be illegal for companies to falsely claim secure practices in advertisements (see: nomx).

Long term, I'd like to be a college professor. I've always really liked teaching and I want to go mold minds at the collegiate level (I tell people it's because you don't have to deal with students' parents in college). I think my heart will always lie in academia so I know that no matter what (if I don't end up in policy and stay in the private sector) I'll end up in a classroom.
