Seymour E. Goodman

Seymour Goodman is Professor of International Affairs and Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Co-Director of both the Georgia Tech Information Security Center and the Center for International Strategy, Technology and Policy. He is also currently Contributing Editor for International Perspectives for the Communications of the ACM. Goodman is an expert on international computer security issues. His particular areas of research include international information technology diffusion, information technology and national security, and related public policy issues. Currently Goodman's work includes research on the global diffusion of the Internet and the protection of large IT-based infrastructures.(1)

Goodman obtained his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology, and was formerly Director of the Consortium for Research on Information Security and Policy at the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University with an appointment in the Department of Engineering Economic Systems and Operations Research.(2)

Oral History interview .

Abstract In this oral history, Seymour Goodman describes his career in computing, beginning with his education including undergraduate work at Columbia University and earning a Ph.D. in mathematical physics at California Institute of Technology. Facing the downturn in physics employment around 1970, he took a position at the University of Virginia and transformed himself into a computer scientist specializing in algorithms. While on a sabbatical leave at Princeton University, he became interested in the social and political analysis of computers, especially in the Soviet Union and other East Bloc states. While at Princeton he began what developed into the MOSAIC project (unrelated to the web browser of that name) which flourished with his move to the University of Arizona. MOSAIC staff collected available information on Soviet computing and conducted numerous study tours to investigate the state of Soviet Bloc computing. (Reports from many of these study tours are available at CBI.) This work supported U.S. government efforts in export control policy and implementation. After the 1989-91 political transitions, Goodman’s group began another series of international visitations and field research on the global diffusion of the internet.
