Posted on 07/05/2014 10:19:42 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal
Hi, Norm Matloff here. Im a professor of computer science at the University of California, Davis, and formerly was a statistics professor at that university, but I also write about social issues. As the saying goes, My life is an open bookyou can read the details of my background in my online bio.
Ive written op-eds for the New York Times, the Washington Post, Bloomberg View, CNN and so on. Bloomberg gathers together its op-eds grouped by author; click here to see mine, and thus get an idea of my interests and views.
In this blog, my topics will often fall into one of these categories:
The tech industry labor market, especially regarding the H-1B work visa and age discrimination (starting at age 35!). STEM education issues. University admissions policies, particularly related to diversity. Chinaculture, politics, language, relations with the U.S. Economics.

I hope this isn’t your blog, or you will be getting an incoming from Humblegunner. lol
Is this your blog?
Are you here to sell health care, immigration, global warming or evolution ?
We get a lot of that already just to let you know
"Norm" has an exaggerated sense of self importance.
I don't think anyone one the planet gives a damn about his interests and views.

I will judge his writings by their content. I learn something from everything I read.
That’s a good one. I love Miller’s sardonic wit.
Looks like you’ve run out of relatives to comment over on your blog...
When I read blogs, I mostly learn that they suck.
Interesting. Thanks for the mad data scientist repost. Best wishes. Thanks for your posts/presence on FR.
Ive written op-eds for CNN.
Bragging or complaining?.
I'm sure you are aware there are those here on FR who will be highly critical of your labor and a constant source of discouragement to your cause.
I can assure they do so out of clear jealousy much more than their feigned righteousness about protecting FR from self serving bloggers only interested in getting hits on their site. Thankfully such are few, but do manage to show up, to display their Green-eyed monster.
Congratulations on your decision and Good Luck in your battle against those who would destroy our Free Republic, presuming that being a freeper, such is the focus of your project.
Before the internet enabled bloggers to share their thoughts online they were limited to exposing themselves at people in bus stations.

I don’t know who you are, but I know what FR is, and there’s currently a Freepathon going on.
If you haven’t donated, I hope you’ll do so, especially after using the site for your own aims rather than posting your content here.
I dont know who you are, .........
All you need to do is read a little. He’s one of the good guys.
