Dissertation proposal: "Shaping Possibility Space"

At long last, I have submitted my dissertation proposal:
Fair warning: it is long -- 72 pages not including Glossary and Bibliography.  Being academic work, it will not be 'light reading' for many readers.  I have done my best to be clear and direct, but the subject matter is complicated.

Spoiler alert: I don't propose to solve the Cyber Security Problem(tm) in my research.  Instead, I'm studying the process of innovation that might, eventually, lead to new solutions, especially institutional innovations.  Some readers might find this boring, irrelevant, or 'ivory tower'.

Feedback is most welcome.  If you don't have my email address, ping me on Twitter.

The defense meeting is in mid-October.

B-Sides LV slides

Here are my slides for today's B-Sides Las Vegas talk (5pm Wednesday).  I'll be demoing the B-Sides SF spreadsheet (see previous post).  A video of the talk will be available on in a day or so.
