I'm a Mitarbeiter, or research assistant, in Martin Odersky's research group.
A list of papers written (entirely or jointly) by me is also available.
This environment echo page will print out the information your WWW browser broadcasts over the net. Why is it good to check this information? Because it is possible for sites to capture this information with no limit on its distribution, marketability, etc. While some information (like your hostname and domain) must be sent out for you to get information back, other information (like your username) is not necessary. But extra information like your username is what's useful for commercial profiles, damaging to you if found in the logs of suppliers of "banned" material, and so forth. Look in particular for an HTTP_FROM field in this page, talk to your system administrator about options on your browser which will better protect your privacy, and lobby for such options to be the default on your system.
