The University of Michigan philosophy lecturer who is the Unabomber's pen pal

"David F. Skrbina, a lecturer in philosophy at the University of Michigan here, read the manifesto in The Washington Post on the day it was published, he saw value in the message. He was particularly impressed by its clarity of argument and its references to major scholars on the philosophy of technology. He saw a thinker who wrongly turned to violence but had an argument worthy of further consideration." [Chronicle of Higher Education] [Links added]

Skrbina is a dreamer who only wishes he could muster the cajones to act on his beliefs like his pen pal Kaczynski did. So he does what all the rest of the academic anarchists do; he writes books.
