The time has come to make a difference

Rob Rosenberger, Vmyths co-founder
Friday, 15 October 1999

THE TIME HAS come to make a difference. You can nominate me to the U.S. government's Computer System Security and Privacy Advisory Board. See below for simple instructions and a sample letter. CSSPAB members receive no salary. Nomination deadline: 15 Nov 99. My wife alerted me to this, so I know I've got her backing. I need your backing, too.

  1. Write a short letter like this one:
    I nominate Rob Rosenberger for a position on the Computer System Security and Privacy Advisory Board, membership type #2 (independent expert). Mr. Rosenberger submitted his credentials package by mail and he will gladly serve a term on the board if selected. Thank you for considering him.
  2. Mail or fax your letter to:
    NIST
    Edward Roback, CSSPAB Secretary

    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-8930
    FAX: (301) 926-2733[1]

We're talking about making a tiny difference here. Then again, a statue begins with one small chip in a massive block of stone. Help me put a chip on my shoulde... no wait, I mean help me chip away at... oh for God's sake, you know what I mean! Let's do it.
