Because I know many of my students are practicing more self-discipline than usual this week…

No Such Thing as Bad Publicity?

First, the part of Booz Allen Hamilton I worked for has always had separate government/commercial parts. I only worked on the commercial side. Now it’s even more separate.

That said, I suppose after Snowden, I won’t have to say something like, “Maybe you’ve never heard of Booz Allen Hamilton, but…”

This just went from bad to worse:

Snowden, who worked for Booz Allen Hamilton for roughly three months at an NSA facility in Hawaii, is now the subject of an international manhunt after leaking highly classified documents to the Washington Post and Britain’s Guardian newspaper.

I hope this changes:

James Fisher, a spokesman for Booz Allen Hamilton, said the company had no comment beyond its statement on June 11.

Masters Degree for Less Than $7,000

Amazing. The world of higher education could change really, really fast. 

If you can get the quality of a Georgia Tech education while living in a low-cost location…well, be on the lookout for more U.S. students who live abroad to complete their advanced degrees.
