Letter to the NYTimes:
I'm an avid reader of the Times. I am also a professor of electrical engineering.
If you would like my advice, I'm writing to say that Randall Stross's columns are mixture of the obvious with the obviously wrong. Some people may disagree, but his writing is well below the NYTimes' standard. It pains me that no one seems to have noticed that a paper that prints columns by Paul Krugman and David Pogue, among others, could do a lot better in the area of internet and digital communications.
Thanks for considering the opinions of your readers!
