Over three years ago I wrote about my dabbling in various areas of computer science, and my indecision in figuring out what I wanted to specialize in.
Since then, instead of specializing, I appear to have decided to generalize even more.
I'm happy to say that I am now a "Junior Affiliate Scholar" at the Stanford Law School's Center for Internet and Society.*
These days I'm pretty confident of my interdisciplinary outlook. In fact, I see hyperspecialization as an endemic problem in academia. There seems to be a giant vacuum at the boundary between computer science and various other disciplines, for sure.
*This is a merely an affiliation; I continue to be primarily a CS postdoctoral researcher.
