Amazing things Dr. Husam's made
I hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science from LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana (1991-1997) and a Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana (1979-1984). My hobbies are reading, photography, and chess.
My first venture was back in 1986 when I co-founded GloboNet, the first ISP in Louisiana (USA): IBC, CR #34329839D.
During the past 40+ years, I was instrumental in the US and the Middle East. Not only I built the first FDDI high speed network at my school and administered BitNet, but I also published and presented papers at international conferences. Back in 1986, I worked with a distinguished group of professors from Cornell University, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, Iowa State University, and Southern University to build the first Engineering Multimedia Courseware Distributed System (The Synthesis Coalition).
