That sounds fantastic Terri. I have always been interested in AI, and in 
research rather than business computing.  I don't see any future for 
myself other than as a uni lecturer.  Are there jobs in AI in the sates?

How does this work?  Where did your co-authour get the money to support 
you (his own business?) and what does he get in return?  It sounds as 
though the arrangement didn't involve you working for him once you 
finished your masters.  How are you financing you PhD?
