fyi McAfee San Diego State University has a home use site-license for McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for both Windows PC’s and Macintosh. SDSU active faculty and staff can acquire this software by providing a blank CDR along with completing a license agreement at the help desk. Faculty and staff should first check with their local administrators to make sure they adhere to virus software policies that might be specific to their own departments. All users must adhere to the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP).

2. James Frazee has ITS Update
ITS faculty survey -- we're embarking on a strategic renewal process through which we seek to evaluate our effectiveness at meeting the university’s needs, benchmark our performance against other institutions, identify trends within our areas of responsibility, review the university’s strategic directions, and develop a plan to guide ITS over the next three to five years. ITS began a budget-driven self-study in 2007, and this led to the development of a 3-year roadmap. Lots has changed since our last needs assessment... James plans to engage college leadership, including IT leads, as part of this process

3. Social Network - LinkedIn
I have used the LinkedIn online resource for several years and found it useful with CS faculty. The student ACM computer club also recently heard from one of their former officers about the usefulness of this resource. I have looked up most of our committee members and found them on the system.
Kris Stewart on LinkedIn - easily connects with many News URLs, e.g. SDSU NAC Security list
