About Me

I can’t find my About page on my blog so here it is again.  Tell me there is a better way.

“Jim Whitescarver has been regarded to be technological “seer” for decades. He sees opportunities to create new and breakthrough types of systems. And he has the technical skills to build them.”  – Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) Pioneer Starr Roxanne Hiltz. (from my LinkedIn page).

I am currently developing Biometric authentication as a consultant at AT&T, security privacy at ProvenSecure.com and my passion FreeTrust.oug

Work and Related Experience

Jim Whitescarver has a rich information technology and research background including 25 years research staff and adjunct faculty at NJIT, banking and brokerage, enterprise applications, web development and security.

Education

After five years data processing experience when customer education was free to IBM customers, Jim attended IBM System Science Education (experience qualified for the degree prerequisite) where he emerged top of the class. Then Jim went back to school, doing largely independent study in computer science, and completed his major in Computer Science and minor in Electrical Engineering in 1979. He went on to take, and teach masters courses as research staff at NJIT. He is a charter member of the Phi Epson Phi computer science honor society..

I am what you say I am.

This is about me so go away if you are expecting something else.  See the about page here to see my credentials.

I am not a private person.  I don’t mind much getting caught with my pants down.  I take criticism well because I know I am wrong and am looking for better answers.  I feel like a stranger in a strange land. I fancy that I am an idiot-savant since I am often labeled as one or the other.  I suffer a social intelligence deficit and while I may appear to have largely overcome it, I am generally clueless about how people will interpret my words.

My intention is to use this blog to post stories about myself for the benefit of my friends and family.  My son James nags me to leave a record.  I do have stuff around the net on me and will try to post it here as I have the opportunity.  I will answer any questions about myself.
