Congratulations to my Columbia University colleague Steve Bellovin, who was just appointed as the first Technology Scholar of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (announcement here).  I've learned a lot from Steve in the years I've known him here on campus.  Some readers will be familiar with his work on "lawful hacking" with fellow Lawfarer Susan Landau.  He has also done a lot of work like this paper that shows how technical expertise can be essential to understanding legal and policy issues.
