Update on John Hopkins University and NSA blog posts

"I just received a very kind formal apology from the Interim Dean of JHU Whiting School of Engineering."  Matthew Green ~https://twitter.com/matthew_d_green/status/377491743870291968

Andrew Douglas, the interim Dean involved, wrote a very manner (to use a SC2/Korean phrase) apology, he also released a copy to the press.

A copy of the apology can be read at http://arstechnica.com/security/2013/09/university-apologizes-for-censoring-crypto-prof-over-anti-nsa-post/.

I know from personal experience how hard it is to admit your wrong about something serious and apologize.

Andrew Douglas, Ph.D. has earned my respect by the way he dealt with this issue, once he realized a mistake had been made.

As I have stated before, everyone makes mistakes, only foolish people fail to learn from them.

I like to think wise people learn from the mistakes of others, so they have opportunity to make their own original mistakes.
